Charles R. Aebersold

Charles R. Aebersold, age 94, of Brooklyn, Mich. passed away September 10, 2022 peacefully at the Hospice of Lenawee Home. He was born in Tecumseh, Mich. October 4, 1927 to Clarence and Sarah (Boyd) Aebersold.

He lived his entire life in Tecumseh until recently moving to Brooklyn to be cared for by his granddaughter Tara and Ross Trumble’s family where he was wonderfully cared for and surrounded by many of his cherished grandchildren, who brought such joy to his last several months.

After graduation from Tecumseh High School in 1945 he was drafted into the Army Air Force, serving 1945-47. Upon returning from the service he married Ethel (Rohn) Aebersold on October 4, 1947. She preceded him in death on November 7, 2021 shortly after celebrating 74 years of marriage.  

Charles worked for The Tecumseh Products Company for 40 years before retiring in 1989.

Through the years he enjoyed antiquing, woodworking, farming, and gardening. Dad loved family gatherings the most and cherished his family. He was a man of integrity and taught us lessons until the end.
