Charles E. Topel
Charles E. Topel, age 88, the only child of Clarence and Olga (Zimmerman) Topel passed away on April 30, 2015.
The family farm along the Crawfish River on Manske Road he called home. He was the father of 5 children; Eugene; Myron (Susan); Katherine (Rex) Jackson; Mark and Mary Lent. His working life included farming, the Milford Feed Mill, Perry Printing and Jim’s Cheese Pantry.
Charles found enjoyment in gardening (especially fond of roses), hunting and fishing trips to Canada. After retirement he and Evelyn traveled to Alaska. He was always eager to share the trip with a slide show and his colorful stories. Charles was never able to travel to Germany, 2nd best was German Fest, a beer and some lively Polka music. Charles dabbled in bee keeping, Black Walnut Council, Ducks Unlimited, furniture construction and wine making.
He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Evelyn; his children; 10 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren. Per Charles’ wishes no formal service will be held. A private family burial will be held at a later date in the Aztalan Cemetery.
