Service Information


Charles W. Gauger
 
Service:  Private



 

Charles Walter Gauger passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 22, 2018.  Known as Chuck to his friends he would have celebrated his 92nd birthday next month.  His wife, Bea Gauger, passed away in May 2017. Chuck was born on March 21, 1926 in St. Paul, Minnesota. He graduated from John Marshall High School and immediately afterward joined the Navy and served as an electronic technician in the Pacific. Following his service to his country, he enrolled and graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Electrical Engineering.  It was during his college years that he met and later married Bea.  They were happily married for 67 years. Chuck was an active volunteer for the Meals on Wheels program with his wife for many years.  In retirement, Chuck and Bea traveled frequently.  They visited all 50 states and several European countries. They were long term members of Trinity Lutheran Church of Grand Rapids. Chuck is survived by his sons, Steve (Priscilla), and Doug Gauger (Mary), and his daughter, Barb Gauger; his grandchildren, Bryan Gauger and Lauren (Gauger) Bascom; and four great grandchildren. The Gauger family is grateful for the exceptional care received from the staff of Faith Hospice at Trillium Woods. A private service to honor the faith and life of Chuck Gauger will be held at a later date.
