Sheboygan

 

Charles “Chuck” H. Brukardt, 87, of Sheboygan, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and caregivers at his home on Thursday, January 11, 2024.

 

Chuck was born on May 13, 1936, to Charles and Caroline (Luft) Brukardt in Menominee, Michigan. When Chuck was 15 years old his family moved to the south side of Sheboygan. He graduated from Sheboygan Central High School with the class of 1954. On May 18, 1957, Chuck was married to Joyce Walczak in Sheboygan. After their wedding, they drove down to California on Route 66 for their honeymoon. Together, Joyce and Charles raised their only child, Randall, in Sheboygan.

 

After graduation from high school, he served in the National Guard as Sargent 1st and Acting Master Sargent. He was employed by Wisconsin Graphic Plate Corp. as a manager. After almost ten years he left Wisconsin Graphic Plate Corp. in 1963 and bought one third of Boneck Printing Inc. In 1978, Chuck overtook 100% of Boneck Printing and later retired in 2001.

 

Chuck enjoyed remodeling properties and building his own home. He planted trees to create a forest around his home. When he was not building or remodeling Chuck loved working in his gardens, reading, doing woodworking and photography. Chuck and Joyce travelled to every state in the U.S., England, Mexico, and on a Caribbean cruise. They spent a lot of time in their motor home up in Door County.
