Charles (Chuck) LeRoy Trautman

January 24, 1942 - December 09, 2019

Charles (Chuck) LeRoy Trautman passed away peacefully Monday, 09 December, 2019 at his home south of Overbrook, Kansas, at the age of 77.

He is survived by his loving companion, Janet, of 42 years, his 4 children (by previous wife, Linda Trautman Warren), Connie (Warren) Hayes, Julie (Roger) Taylor, Carl (Tracy) Trautman, Janette Steele, and by two step-children (by Janet's previous husband, Phillip Rausch), Jeff (Ann) Rausch, and Michael (Kirsten) Rausch.  He also left behind 19 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.  He was the youngest of 11 children, Bertha, Albert, Ruth (Gilbert), Pearl, Alvin (Lisa), Helen (Ed), Emma, William (Rita), Elsie, Lilian (Oliver), all born to Fred and Olga Trautman.

He was a mechanic, carpenter, and handyman.  He loved fishing, drawing, and playing games, but most of all, he was so happy to be able to build his own home -- almost entirely by himself.  He was a kind-hearted, selfless man, always willing to help others without expecting anything in return.

There will be a special memorial service in Topeka, Kansas, and one in Reno, Nevada.  Relatives and friends will be notified of memorial service times and locations.
