Wissell, Charles Edwin (26 SEP 1927 - 11 JAN 2014)

Charles Edwin Wissell, 86, of Prescott Valley, Arizona went to his heavenly home on January 11, 2014.

He was born in Linn Township near Lake Geneva in Walworth County, Wisconsin, on September 26, 1927.

For over 45 years Charles excelled at dairy farming in Illinois and Wisconsin under the name Wynn-Ellen Farms, the last of which was in Loyal. He moved to Arizona in 1996 where he managed a horse ranch and was a dedicated Wal-Mart employee for over 10 years.

Chuck was an active state, district and county member of the Holstein-Friesian Association for nearly 30 years. He served as president of the Clark County Holstein-Friesian Board.

He was an avid bowler and a die-hard Cubs fan and he was known for his clever humor, heart-warming laugh and shining blue eyes. Chuck took pride in everything he did, and despite being a humble farmer, he was a very wealthy man in terms of the love he fostered among his family and friends.

“Chuck” is survived by wife, Grace (Bottlemy); eight children, Peggy (Dennis) Beaver, Timothy Wissell, Kay (Patrick) Weaver, Jack (Chris) Wissell, L.A. (Kevin) Burnett, Mary (Gary) Rindfleisch, Janice Wissell and William (Debbie) Wissell; eighteen grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and siblings, Evelyn Cornue, James (Ardith) Wissell, Robert (Louise) Wissell, Margaret (Hilmer) Heike and Richard (Joan) Wissell.

He was preceded in death by parents, William and Agnes Wissell; brother, William Wissell, Jr.; and grandson, Justin Rohde.

A celebration of life service will be deferred to spring. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made in Chuck’s name to Granite Mountain Hospice, 3107 Clearwater Dr., Prescott, AZ 86305.
