Charles J. “Charlie” Propson, age 68, of Stockbridge, died on Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at Ascension Calumet Hospital in Chilton.  He was born, September 3, 1951 in Fond du Lac, son of the late Victor and Cecelia (Mueller) Propson.  He met the love of his life and married Jane A. Zahringer on May 19, 1972 at St. Mary Catholic Church in Stockbridge.  

Charlie was employed at Keller Structures in Kaukauna until his retirement in 2010. Prior to that he worked for Grogan Ready Mix in Stockbridge. Charlie was a hard worker and dedicated employee. However he did manage to sneak a few days away to head to Lake Winnebago and try to find the best fishing spot for the sturgeon spearing season.  He looked forward to the season every year and managed to dabble his luck in ice fishing as well.  He was a member of the Brickyard Fishing Club.  

In Charlie’s other free time he could be found making grape wine trying perfect his personal recipe. He liked to hunt for asparagus along the ditches as well as tend to his vegetable garden where he grew one of his favorite vegetables, kohlrabi.  Charlie and Jane also found entertainment in cracking and picking hickory nuts. Jane was the cracker and Charlie was the picker.  

Charlie was a handy man who liked to try to fix things himself and would go out of his way to be friendly and help anyone out.  He was a very social person and loved to talk. He could carry on a friendly conversation for hours at the local establishments around town and visit with people.  

Charlie will be greatly missed by his wife, Jane; his children, Dan Propson and Tina (Ken) Funk; one grandchild, Gracie Funk; one step grandchild, Dakota Funk; his siblings, Eugene (Carla) Propson and Betty Schuster; his mother-in-law, Doris Zahringer; Sisters-in-law: Verna Propson, Louette Propson, and Dorthy Propson, Beverly Propson; and many brothers and sisters-in-law from the Zahringer family, other relatives and friends.  

Charlie was preceded in death by his parents, brothers: Michael, Peter, Edward, Bernard, Francis; brother-in-law, Edgar Schuster; and father-in-law, Sylvester “Wimp” Zahringer.  

Funeral Services will be at 7:00 PM on Monday, January 6, 2020 at Wieting Family Funeral Home in Chilton.  Friends may gather for a time of visitation on Monday, Janaury 6, 2020 from 3:00 PM - 6:45 PM until service.

You will be missed Uncle Charlie.

My heart goes out to the family. I always enjoyed walking into Bobbers and seeing Charlie with that bug smile on his face, I will miss him.
