The memories and the legacy we leave behind are what matter most…..
Charles Sylvester Wittkamp lived March 9th1939 - April 29th2020,
these dates tell you when he lived but they don’t tell you about his dash and oh what a dash it was. He was born on March 9th1939 to Grace and Walter Wittkamp the first of 2 sons. Chuck graduated from high school and was married to Nancy Wyckoff and they had 3 children Billy, Monica and Scott. They divorced and he married his forever love, Mary Snyder in 1969 and they had 2 children Charla and Brandi. He loved life and he enjoyed it. After 14 years he and Mary divorced and 12 years later he found his way back to her and they were remarried. He later shared that letting her go was the dumbest thing he had ever done and was happy they were together again. Although he didn’t always show his love the way people thought he should he loved his wife and his family more than they could understand. He was a complicated, strong willed man with many opinions. When he believed in something, he would argue it to his death right or wrong. “Charlie” was the best mechanic you ever saw and was completely self taught. He had a curious mind and would often take things apart to see how they worked which is how he learned most of his mechanical skills. There wasn’t a thing he couldn’t figure out how to fix and he passed those mechanical skills on to a few of his children. He loved hunting, fishing, and Nascar and spent many falls feeding his deer and turkeys enjoying the outdoors. “Charlie” lived more lives than a cat and after numerous brushes with death he finally succumbed to his Stomach Cancer at 81 and died on April 29th 2020 peacefully in his home.
Charles S Wittkamp was proceeded in death by his mother Grace (House) Wittkamp and his Father Walter Wittkamp and numerous aunts and uncles. He is survived by his wife Mary Snyder and his children Bill (Nancy) Wittkamp, Monica (Brian) Snider, Scott (Deanie) Wittkamp, Charla Bishop and Brandi (Randy) Phare and his bother Walt Wittkamp and 2 nephews. He also leaves behind 11 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren who he loved more than he could ever express and was proud thy were a part of his legacy.
My dad’s “dash” was filled with many, many things. He was a complicated man with a good heart and will be missed by many. We pray we will see him again one day in Heaven.
The family will not be having a service at this time.

Mary and family we were very sorry to hear of Chuck's passing. Although we only saw Chuck once a year at class reunions we enjoyed our visits with he and Mary. Mary always made sure he was well taken care of. As stated in his obituary he did have his strong opinions. He was a great guy and will be missed by us and his many friends

Condolences to all of you. Chuck was one of my dads closest friends and there wasn’t a time he didn’t help any way he could. I think they did that for each other. Even though my dad has been gone 10 years, Chuck was always there for him. They are having a PBR, glad to see each other again. Mary and children...your husband and dad was a good man. Life has given you a new normal...unfortunately we all can’t be here forever. Cherish your memories. May you find solace in great memories and know that prayers are coming your way. Lean on your family and friends...share all those memories and love. 😔❤️ Sue Zwiefka Lytle
