Charles (Chuck) Steven Ondrejka, age 85 of Markesan, passed away peacefully at home with family by his side on Monday, December 1, 2014.

Chuck was born on November 24, 1929, in Mayville, WI to Michael and Helen (Micklas) Ondrejka. He graduated from Mayville High School and proudly served his country in the United States Army in Korea, during the Korean War. On July 17, 1954, he was united in marriage to Mary L. Chapman of Juneau, WI, in Mayville. Chuck worked as a butcher in Markesan and other nearby communities for many years, and later retired from Speed Queen in Ripon, in 1991.

Chuck was very active in the community and enjoyed volunteering at the Markesan Resident Home. He was a member of the Holy Family Catholic Parish and the Markesan American Legion Post. Chuck was very handy, and enjoyed DIY projects and his model HO train sets. He was a sports enthusiast and proudly cheered on local teams, the Packers, Brewers and Badgers, and also liked watching boxing. He loved wildlife, his pet cats, going for drives, playing golf, and fishing with his children and grandchildren.
