Obituary

Charles 'Chuck' Lee Janssen, March 22, 1950-July 12, 2018

Charles "Chuck" Lee Janssen (also known as Papa or "Toon") was born the youngest of six in Spokane, Wash., on March 22, 1950. He passed away peacefully on July 12, 2018.

Chuck was very generous and always took time to help family or friends, no matter how far away. He always had a smile, joke and whatever else was needed. He worked as an auto mechanic for many years and retired in 2015.

Chuck loved animals (especially our dog Sophie) classic cars, boats, and particularly yellow Ford Thunderbirds! He also liked '60s and '70s pop/rock, and good diner breakfasts.

Chuck moved to Tucson in his youth and worked here for most of his life, beginning at Horton Garage at 12th and Ajo and then for Holmes Tuttle. He then worked on city vehicles and police cars at the Price Service Center for two decades, until he retired.

He is survived by beloved wife Ina, children Laura and Kent, grandchildren Samantha, Arden, and Joey, great-granddaughter Arielle, brothers George and Bill, sister Kate, and nephews Mike, Matthew, Justin, and George and nieces Katie, Terri, Ruth, Rachel, and Sheri.

He was preceded in death by his parents George and Theresa, sister Fran, and brother Louis. By his request there will not be a funeral service.
