Charles A. Mola, age 80, of Hancock, died Tuesday, December 22, 2020 at his daughter’s home outside of Juneau.
Due to Covid-19, the visitation and service for Charlie will be private. Burial will be at Colburn Leola Cemetery near Hancock, Wisconsin.
Charlie was born on January 18, 1940 in East Chicago, Indiana to the late James and Victoria (Fliter) Mola. He was united in marriage with Karen Nagel on June 9, 1962 in East Chicago, Indiana. They moved to Wisconsin in 1969 and he went to work at John Deere Horicon Works. Charlie worked there for 31 years, retiring on November 1, 2000. But he couldn’t be idle so he and Karen became the manager and head of maintenance of the American Mobile Home Community for over 10 years. Charlie enjoyed shooting in trap league and in various trap tournaments and shooting pool and earned many trophies in both sports. He also enjoyed snowmobiling, hunting and tinkering around in his garage. He spent the last 10 years at his second home in Adams County…his favorite place to be …peaceful, quiet, and simple.
Survivors include his two daughters, Shelley Simich of Beaver Dam and Debra (Phillip) Buss of Juneau; four grandchildren, Jacob and Aaron Simich, Chelsea Plummer, and Charlie Mola, III; two great grandchildren, Caydn Thompson and Phoebe Simich; his brother, Mike (Rose) Mola of Idaho; other relatives and friends. Charlie was preceded in death by his parents; his beloved wife Karen; two sons, Charlie Mola, II and Thomas Mola; and his grandson, Corey Mola.
