Charles “Chuck” Henry Strup, age 88, of Delta, Ohio; formerly of Toledo, Ohio passed away Friday, October 11, 2019 at Fulton County Health Center. He  was born February 4, 1931 in Bryan Ohio to Leslie and Viola (Favorite) Strup. He was a Veteran of the United States Army. He was employed at Sylvester Material Company in Sylvania Ohio from 1968 to 1999 as Truck Driver, Diesel Mechanic and all around “guy in charge of everyone”.  After retiring from Sylvester Material he worked for many years at Raceway Park maintaining the grounds and fixing anything that was broken. When he retired the last time he enjoyed mowing his grass and spending time with wife of 22 years and his two dogs. He also enjoyed his time in Salisbury North Carolina at their second home.  He claimed they have better food in the south. 

Chuck enjoyed life. If you met him once you never forgot him.  He was a character and had a great sense of humor. He raced cars and motorcycles , he was a “MANS MAN”.   He enjoyed when people would stop over to have a beer and visit.  He had a crazy obsession for mowing grass and tinkering with his lawn mowers.  He is probably the only guy that had a Mack Bull Dog as a hood ornament on his John Deere. We could go on and on but as he would say “if its too long he wouldn't read it” so… We will close by saying; he will be missed is an understatement..  To Know him is to love him.. 

Chuck will be greatly missed by his wife, Donna (Penny)Strup, children, Danny Strup (Luann Dennis) of Holland, OH, Charles (Susan) Strup of Leonardtown, MD,  Linda Recker (Ronnie Hallett) of Maumee, OH , Shelley (Stewart) Reed of Salisbury, NC and only surviving sibling, Brother Allen Joe Strup(Barbara) of Olympia, Washington and several nieces and nephews. 

Chuck was preceded in death by his parents, Leslie and Viola Strup; Son Jon Strup; only granddaughter, Jessica Strup; and brother, John Strup and sisters Nora Belle Wilson, Julia Peterson, Edith Deken and Flora Rose Miller.

Services will be private. Final resting place will be Ottawa Hills Memorial Park. Arrangements have been entrusted to Edgar-Grisier Funeral Home in Wauseon, Ohio. Online expressions of sympathy may be made at
