Charles F. Regenhard Jr.

April 22, 1953May 19, 2020

Charles (Charlie) Fredrick Regenhard Jr. 67, died on May 19, 2020 in Naples, Florida.

Charlie was born in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, to parents Charles Sr. and Helen (Leadbetter) Regenhard from whom he learned his mechanical and business sense. He used his technical and business knowledge to start his own company, CCE Technologies, Inc. with two business partners.

Spending time with family and friends was most important to Charlie. He was the dear brother of Robert (Vicki) Regenhard, Patricia (Wesley) Lawson, Randall (Deidre) Regenhard, and Mark (Staci) Regenhard. He was the father of one child, Andrew, who was his ‘bud’ and pride and joy. He died proud. In 1977, Charlie married Kim (Colby), the love of his life. They lived their lives to the fullest in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas and Florida. She always enjoyed his sense of humor and appreciated his genuine thoughtfulness.

Charlie enjoyed boating, water-skiing, scuba diving, Rock & Roll music and American-made muscle cars. He was a good friend to so many people and was always the first to offer help to anyone in need. He was a great host for house and boat parties. He always made you feel welcome with a smile, a joke and a ‘dangerously cold’ beer.

In recent years, Charlie was challenged with a stroke, Parkinson’s disease and dementia but never complained. He was always more concerned about others. He was a sweet and gracious man.

Charlie was preceded in death by his father Charles, his mother Helen and his grandparents.

In addition to his wife Kim and son Andrew, he is survived by his siblings, Bob, Patti, Randy, Mark and by dozens of adoring nieces and nephews as well as by wonderful friends.

Due to COVID-19, a Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date at Floral Haven Memorial Gardens in Broken Arrow, OK. Contributions in Charlie’s name may be directed to The Michael J. Fox Foundation, P.O. Box 5014, Hagerstown, MD 21741-5014.

There are SO many fun memories with Kim, Charlie and Andrew. Every time we would visit MN/WI, they would host us at their beautiful home and on their beautiful boat. There would be plenty of food and drinks. All the kids would swim, play in the sand or go tubing together. Many of our visits were around July 4th, so Mike and Charlie would put on a fireworks show that was always spectacular. Thank you Regenhards for many wonderful memories.

Charlie, you were one of my favorite uncles to be around. Every time I went to Grand Lake when I was little and growing up, you were there. I had such a fun time talking and going out on the lake and being there. You will be missed dearly and loved. I know you are with Him and we will see you when it is our time so keep watching over us until then. You will be our Guardian Angel in Heaven for us. I love and miss you, Charlie.

Rest in Peace and live free from pain Uncle Charlie.

Everything mentioned in the obituary is how we remember Charlie. We were connected to Charlie through Joy Lutheran Church in Prescott, WI. We served on a committee with both Charlie and Kim to mentor and support an intern we had hired. This connection grew into a friendship. Charlie's smile was priceless and his mannerisms gentle and friendly to all who knew him.
Charlie, you will be missed!
