Yea, though I walk through the valley of theshadow of death, I will fear no evil:for thou art with me;thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before mein the presence of mine enemies:thou anointest my head with oil:my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall followme all the days of my life:and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Charles Ray Altstatt, 77, of Siren, WI, passed away on July 16, 2019 in St. Paul, MN. Visitation and wake will be Saturday, August 3 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Dominic Catholic Church in Frederic, WI.

Charlie was born in St. Paul, MN to Frances (Sho) and Raymond Altstatt on November 12, 1941. He attended St. Jude of the Lake in Mahtomedi and St. Thomas Academy in St. Paul, as well as St. John's University, graduating from University of Minnesota with a baccalaureate in mechanical engineering. He then worked for Boeing in Seattle where he met Margaret Hurley, the love of his life and wife of 50 years. They soon returned to family in St. Paul where he worked for Torit Donaldson Company. Charlie's entrepreneurial spirit led him to cofound and lead the manufacturing company CK Engineering for 15 years where he made machine parts, tanning beds, and dreamed up new products such as board game pieces. He later let his creativity flow into a retirement business, Rustic Living Wisconsin, on Mudhen Lake in Siren, WI where he enjoyed designing and selling outdoor furniture and DIY furniture parts for which customers around the world sent proud pictures of what they were inspired to make. Moving to the small Wisconsin community spurred his sense of civic engagement and he became known as an "ideas man." He cofounded the Lake Country Pedalers bicycle club to get locals and tourists outside biking the trails and he actively engaged in improving the trail system for cyclists. Not every idea could be put into action, most regrettably live turtle races, but his enthusiasm and good nature encouraged all to think of fun possibilities and join in every endeavor. Charlie was heavily involved with the charitable efforts of the Knights of Columbus, serving for a time as Grand Knight for the local chapter. Charlie is preceded in death by his father and mother. He is survived by his wife, Margaret, his five loving children, Rosanne (Burkhard) Altstatt, Aimee (Paul) Maravigli, Jim (Lily) Altstatt, Dan (Dawn) Altstatt, and Anne (Nick) Altstatt. Beloved brother of Mary Altstatt Abraham, Arthur Altstatt, Joe Altstatt, Gene Altstatt, Jan Altstatt Gregg, and Elizabeth Altstatt. Proud grandfather of Madeleine, Luke, Lieselotte, Patrick, Alexander, Nicholas, Charlie, Claire, and Celia.
