Chuck St. Pierre
Chuck St. Pierre, 63, De Pere, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Monday, June 24, 2013.
We say goodbye to a Warrior. Chuck spent his life embodying the Warrior Spirit in all he did and with everyone he knew. A decorated U.S. Marine whose sacrifices earned him two Purple Hearts and the Bronze Star in Vietnam, Chuck raised his two sons, Chuck and Jim, in the Warrior tradition and mentored them through their multiple tours of duty in Iraq, Afghanistan and other locations across the Globe. A lifetime student and Shihan of his beloved Martial Art, Chuck also leaves a legacy of Martial Artists that he trained and guided for over four decades, including his sons, his fiancée Mary Joy Watkins, her daughter Andrea, and hundreds more. Chuck would go to any length to help a friend. He was a loving grandfather to his granddaughters, Jordan and Taylor; was a kind and generous soul with a heart of pure gold; was an ally in life, and a strong shoulder for all. Chuck set high expectations for himself and for those he encountered - he never accepted defeat and instilled that same expectation and drive to succeed in all those around him. In his passing, we have lost the man that was Chuck St. Pierre. But in his passing, we have gained through his examples in Warriorship and through his Warrior Spirit those examples will remain with us all.
Friends may call at Blaney Funeral Home, 1521 Shawano Ave., from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 2. To send online condolences, please go to www.BlaneyFuneralHome.com.
