It is with great sadness the family of Charles G. “Buck” Williamson announces his peaceful passing at his home on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. He was born on April 2, 1930 in Galesville, the son of George & Agnes (Johnson) Williamson.
Buck served in the Army and was a Korean War veteran. He worked as an electrical lineman for NSP for 36 years in the Galesville & Owen areas before he landed in Mondovi in 1967, where he’s been a proud community member and citizen of the year in 1991. He taught hunter safety for 27 years along with snowmobile safety for many years and was an active member of the Conservation Club.
Buck could and had the patience to fix anything and if he couldn’t he would invent or make something to fix that other thing. A true handyman, he has helped many neighbors and people throughout the years. He loved to fish, hunt, have coffee and joke with his buddies. He enjoyed football, whoever was playing, and thoroughly enjoyed watching his grandchildren play sports through the years. Buck & Ethel traveled with their RV after retirement and were snowbirds in Arizona for 20 years.
Buck will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Ethel, of 67 years and fondly remembered by his Julie (David) Larsen of Scottsdale, AZ., Gary (Barb) of Huntington, IN., Steve (Becky) of Mondovi, Bob (Sarah) of Chippewa Falls, Kathy (Jim) Ulness of Eau Claire and Lori (Chris) Seipel of Mondovi; grandchildren, Carrie (Steve) Pearson, Kate Larsen (Zach Stricker), John Williamson, LeeAnn (Kyle) Ganton, Ashley (Jason) Schilling, Jade (John) Okwori, Paige (James) Dutter, Breck Williamson, Morgan (Paul) Beilmeier, Olivia Williamson, Lindsay, Nate (Jenna) & Christopher Ulness, Logan (Abby), Shaye & Nolan Seipel; great-grandchildren, Cael, Owyn & Joshua Pearson, Myla & Luke Ganton, Jacie, William , Ellie & Sadie Schilling, Gabriella , Zola & Ava Okwori and Olive Beilmeier; numerous nieces and nephews; cousins; other relatives and many dear friends.
