Charles Laack

Charles R. Laack, 76, of Rochester, MN, passed away on July 2, 2024. He was born on December 2, 1947, to Robert F. Laack and Gertrude C. Laack. Charles graduated from Rochester John Marshall High School in 1966 and dedicated nearly 30 years of his life to working in the street maintenance department for Rochester Public Works.

Charles had a passion for working, helping, and talking with others. He enjoyed classic country music, oldies rock and roll, and cherished the time he spent with his grandchildren. In his later years, Charles could often be found at hockey rinks around Minnesota, BMX tracks, in his kitchen cooking up a family favorite recipe or simply sitting in front of his house watching the activities in the field across the street.

He is survived by his son, Robert (Jenni) Laack; daughter, Katherine Laack; grandsons, Ace Laack, Christopher Marshall, Sawyer Young, Griffyn Young, and Beckett Young; brother, Steven (Susan) Laack; sister, Kay (Jim) Clark; nieces, Sarah (Kyle) Kappers-Mergen; Kimberly(Andy) Moeller; Julie Clark; Lisa(Derick) Strain; and nephew, Matthew (Peggy)Laack; Michael (Meredith) Clark.

A memorial gathering to honor Charles will be held from 4 PM to 8 PM on Friday, July 12, 2024 in the River Park Chapel at Macken Funeral Home.

Charlie aka Tuna what a guy you were a very kind soul to say the least. We had fun with Rusty, Dennis, you and others at the 3 rd. Ave grocery store. I will always remember you, my friend.  They do not make them like you anymore. Dave.

I’m so sorry to hear Charlie has left us. I’ve known Charlie since grade school- good friend, lots of fun and good times together. Always enjoyed his sense of humor. Somehow we stayed in touch throughout the years. He will be missed!

Charlie was a great guy!  Our family spent a lot of time together as we were growing up at our grandparents home in Rochester. As adults, Charlie and I got together once in a while, just to visit and catch up. He was one of the funniest men I knew, and he had such quick wit and humor. He always had a smart comment to most statements made. He always had me laughing. I haven’t seen him for a few years, but I will always remember the laughter and fun. He brought to  our Laack/Stilwell family. His love and his pride for Robby and Ace was always present if you were ever in a conversation with him. Gone too soon. Rest in peace, cousin Charlie.

❤️❤️ A class act uncle! ❤️❤️

You will be missed Charlie! I'll forever miss the tough love you showed. Your strength and motivation will still shine bright although you are gone. I'm sorry to your family, he was a great man...

Where do I start , so many years of wonderful memories, so many laughs shared so many life experiences so many talks .Charlie was one of a kind, always a joke to be told, always a smile on his face always time to visit, and always his devotion to his kids and grandkids he loved talking about them and singing there praises , I kind of suspect when Gabriel opened the gate for Charlie there was along conversation until Gabriel  finally said “just come inThere are folks waiting for you. " i hope you know how blessed you are to have him for a Dad I am blessed to call him a lifetime friend. 
with deepest sympathy
