Mr. Charles Lewis “Chuck” Westin, age 91, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at Heisinger Bluffs, LSS.

Chuck was born on March 5, 1930 in Howell, Mi., the son of Carl A. and Anna M. (Conrad) Westin. He was married on April 15, 1952 in Grove City, Oh. to Mary Joann Emmelhainz, who preceded him in death on January 20, 2012.

Chuck was a 1948 graduate of Fowlerville High School in Fowlerville, MI. He went on to graduate from Capital University of Columbus, OH in 1952.

He bravely served in the United States Army during the Korean War and was stationed in Thule, Greenland for 13 months. When Chuck returned to civilian life, he taught high school in Ada, Oh. He then worked for 32 years at General Motors Corporation in various facilities around the Detroit area, finishing his career in the Central Office/Human Resources Department until his retirement.

Chuck had a life-long love for music, beginning with piano lessons at an early age. He was most proficient playing the piano and the trumpet, but he played many other instruments as well. Chuck was an accomplished singer and choir director at several different churches during his lifetime. He also shared his considerable solo singing talents at innumerable weddings and special events. Chuck was a great home-handyman, and he could fix just about anything. Most of all, Chuck cherished his family, especially gatherings with his children and grandchildren.

Survivors include: three sons, Steve Westin (Karen) of Jefferson City, Mo., Jeff Westin (Sheila) of Berea, Ky., and Brad Westin (Kathy) of Lynn, Ma.; and five grandchildren, Emma Westin, Hannah Westin, Caitlyn Deaton (Daniel), Nicholas Westin, and Zachary Westin.

Chuck was preceded in death by his loving wife and parents.

Mr. Westin was a role model for me when I was a co-op student in HR at Chevrolet Warren in the early 1970s. Always impeccably dressed and unfailingly kind to me, he was the consummate gentleman. I ended up spending over 30 years in HR in the auto industry and Mr. Westin was one of my earliest mentors. Thank you, sir, and may you Rest In Peace.
