Charles A. Wilson, age 74 of White Bear Lake
Beloved husband, father, grandfather
Charlie Wilson passed away peacefully on August 2, 2023 after a valiant battle with Lewy Body Dementia. He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Josephine; sister, Mary Patricia; brother, Frederick. He will be deeply missed by those who survive him: wife of 25 years, Barbara; sons, Fredrick, Jon (Jackie); grandson, Liam (and one on the way!); siblings, James “Willy”, Susan (David) Farrell; sister-in-law, Mary (Jim Larson) Nesvold; many nieces, nephews and friends.
Born and raised in White Bear Lake, Charlie worked for 36 years for the State of Minnesota Department of Revenue. He thoroughly enjoyed his retirement with Barbara by wintering in Florida, frequenting the casinos of Las Vegas, and most importantly, golfing. He had a quick and sarcastic wit, and worked hard at maintaining cherished lifelong friendships.
A celebration of Charlie’s life will be at 11:00am Friday, August 11 at BRADSHAW, 4600 Greenhaven Drive, White Bear, with visitation one hour prior. Memorials preferred.
