Charles "Chuck" Kompas
Charles "Chuck" Kompas, of Watertown, WI, passed gently, April 19, 2018 at age 76. Chuck was born April 13, 1942, in Milwaukee, WI. Chuck was preceded in death by his parents, Myrtle (nee Turtenwald) and Charles "Charlie" Kompas. Chuck is survived by his cherished partner of 51 years, Dick Anderle. Further survived by his brother, Wayne (Janet) Kompas, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends.

Chuck proudly served in the U.S. Army Reserves from 1960 - 1968. Afterward, Chuck became an accomplished cosmetologist who owned and operated numerous salons in Fox Point and Waukesha including Port Bradley Beauty Salon, Fringes Hair Design, and Mark / Charles Hair Designers.

Chuck enjoyed life fully keeping the company of many dear friends. He was enamored of Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra and had an enormous love of sea travel. Chuck was thrilled to have taken three voyages aboard the QEII (Queen Elizabeth II), where he and Dick enjoyed adventures throughout London, France, Paris, England and beyond. Chuck was also a proud recovering alcoholic who made numerous long-lasting friendships through A.A.
Chuck will be sorely missed by all who loved him. His extended family expresses our forever love and tremendous gratitude to Dick, who loved Chuck selflessly and who tenderly cared for and nursed him throughout his arduous illness with Alzheimer's. The family also acknowledges the kind care and compassion provided from his physicians and staff as well as the superb staffs of St. Coletta of Wisconsin through their Golden Options day program, MCFI caregivers and all of the wonderful and caring Rainbow Hospice Care team. A private remembrance will be held for the family at a later date. Memorials, if desired, would be appreciated to the Alzheimer’s Association, St. Coletta's of Wisconsin, or Rainbow Hospice Care. Bon Voyage Chuckie!
