Charles Juleen passed away peacefully at home on March 23, 2020 after a yearlong battle with cancer.
Charles was born April 12, 1941 in Grantsburg to Carl and Jane Juleen.
He grew up in Milltown, graduating from Unity High School. He was united in marriage to June Bair in 1962. To this union two daughters were born. In 1983, he married Jeanne Workman. He gained a bonus daughter and later he and Jeanne had two sons. Charles spent most of his adult life working at Durex Products in Luck until he retired in 2005. He then went on to work at his dream job cutting grass for the Grantsburg School District. He did that for 11 years and enjoyed every minute of it. Charles enjoyed bowling, horseshoes as well as playing cards. He loved being at the hunting shack with his buddies and later with his sons. In the summer if Charles wasn’t on the lawn mower you would find him out on his scooter. He found every back road in five counties!
Charles was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Jane; and sister, Jan.
He is survived by his wife, Jeanne; children, Laurie (Ron) Smith, Lynett (Ken) Yoerg, Cate (Jeff) Howe, Carl (Samantha) Juleen and Kevin Juleen.

He is also survived by his brother, Terry (Joan) Juleen; sister, Joan (John) Romans; brother in law, Michael Workman and sister in law, Sue (Bill) Folk.
