Marion, Ohio

Charles “Chuck” Iacobucci passed away at home surrounded by his family, on December 15, 2020.  Chuck was 67 years old and lived in Marion, Ohio.

Chuck was born in East Cleveland, Ohio on May 11, 1953, to the late Casimirri and Mary Elizabeth (Otello) Iacobucci and attended Madison High School, graduating in 1971.  Furthering his education, Chuck attended Lakeland Community College, Lake Erie College, and Bowling Green State University, where he earned his MBA.

Chuck married Elizabeth Louise “Betsy” Rumschlag on March 20, 1982, at St. Mary Church in Decatur, Indiana.  Together they moved to Marion, where Chuck was a district manager with L K Motels.  Chuck was a well-known business manager for The Southland Mall and recently St. Mary Church in Marion, Ohio.

Chuck was a Fourth Degree member of the Knights of Columbus. In the past, he was active in the following organizations:  Knights of the Immaculata, Rotary Club, and Toastmasters.  Always wanting to learn and better himself, he was an avid student of Napoleon Hill Foundation PMA Science of Success Program. He was a huge Cleveland sports fan. He enjoyed cooking and always had a story to tell. He could be described as an energetic and optimistic man. He loved to spend time with his family, especially his grandchildren.  As a man of faith, Chuck was a consummate Catholic gentleman and was a long time member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Marion.

Chuck will be missed by his wife, Elizabeth of Marion; children, John Paul (Danielle) Iacobucci of Reynoldsburg, Ohio, Anthony Joseph (Mallory) Iacobucci of Plymouth, Ohio, and Christopher (Stefanie) Iacobucci of Monrovia, California; grandchildren, Chayse, Isabella, Calvin, Liberty Sue, and Bodhi; sister, Mary Ann (Robert) Bittner of Madison, Ohio, and nephews Brian (Paula) Bushnell and Mark (Jennifer) Bushnell.

  • I am so sorry to hear about your family’s great loss. It was pleasure to meet your family. We will keep you in our prayers.

  • Betsy,

    I remember when you first brought Chuck into the family. He was always telling stories and full of life. He added so much joy and fun to the family gatherings, especially when we’d be sitting around a campfire in Mom and Dad’s backyard. We loved having him around. We will greatly miss him.

    You all will be in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Condolences to the Iacobucci family for the loss of patriarch Charles “chuck”. Fond memories of the Iacobucci family visit to Southern California.

  • To the Iacobucci Family,
    So, so sorry to hear the news of your loss. Chuck was always one of the nicest people I’d ever met. The town of Marion has lost a true legend.

  • Betsy and family, we were so sad to hear of Chuck’s passing. Be assured of our prayers for you all. Love, Theresa and Gary Korte and family

  • If Chuck wasn’t so obviously Italian, you could accuse him of being Irish because he had the gift of gab and then some. Back in 1987, one of the few years Indiana University football was any good, Chuck and I got together to watch IU play Ohio State. IU beat OSU badly that year and Chuck couldn’t stand to watch the game. But he got his revenge. Later that night he innocently asked me if I wanted to play Monopoly. Being none-the-wiser, I said, “Sure.” I never had my butt kicked in Monopoly so badly in my life. I couldn’t help but remember that day a few weeks ago when IU played OSU again and barely lost. I texted Betz to tell Chuck I was thinking of him that day.

    Ah well, I had my revenge in turn a few years ago when the Cubs beat the Indians in the World Series. There are those who believe that rain delay was sent by God so the Cubs could regroup.

    Miss ya, Chuck
