Charles W. Tannert, a devoted husband, loving father, grandfather and avid fisherman, passed quietly away on March 12, 1998 at the age of 59. His wry wit, quiet nature and strong character will be sorely missed by all who knew him, especially his wife Noreen and his children Lisa and Chuck. Charlie is also survived by his son-in-law John and three grandkids Ben, Nick and Sam. No matter how hectic life got around him, Charlie always found solace out on the water aboard his 18-foot runabout. With a fishing rod in hand and the sun on his face, Charlie always said, "I love to go fishing, catching something is just a bonus." I'll always treasure our Alaskan adventure, my friend. We'll see you on the other side. Arrangements were made by the Austin F. Knowles Funeral Home, Port Washington. Mass celebrated at St. Peter of Alcantara RC Church. Interment private.
