Charles M. Blachut, 81, a resident of Arden Courts, Elk Grove and formerly of Des Plaines and Franklin Park, was born on August 13, 1933 in Chicago to the late Walter and the late Mary (nee King), and passed away peacefully August 30, 2014 surrounded by his loving family.
Charles was a graduate of Elmhurst College and received his MBA from the University of Chicago. He was a proud US Army Veteran and worked for People’s Gas Light & Coke for 50 years. He was very active in his children’s lives especially as a Cub Scout Master, Lone Tree Area Girl Scout Council Board Member and in the M-NASR Program, driving his son Dave to endless activities. He was a member of the Chicago Jaycees, St. Gertrude’s Parish in Franklin Park and St. Mary’s Parish in Des Plaines. Charles was always considered a true “Gentleman” by all his caregivers and his family would like to thank Arden Courts for their fantastic and loving care and the staffs at both Manorcare and Alexian Brothers for their wonderful kindness. You were all considered a true blessing.
Charles was the adoring husband of 58 years to the late Doris (nee Hadley); loving father of Lynn (Bill) Kimball and David; proud grandfather of Kristilyn Rehmann; dear brother of Walter, the late Kathleen Trettereno and the late Johanna Wright; beloved uncle and friend to many, he will be missed by all those whose lives he touched.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Charles’ name to Avenues to Independence.
