Charles William Groll

October 06, 1943 ‒ February 08, 2019

Waldo, Ohio

Charles William Groll, age 75 of Waldo, passed away at his home on Friday, February 8, 2019.

Charles was born on October 6, 1943 in Marion, the son of Arden R. and Barbara J. (Melvin) Groll. Charles graduated from Waldo High School. He was a lifelong farmer and is currently serving as Fiscal Officer of the Township of Waldo.

Charles was a jack of all trades. There wasn’t anything that Charles couldn’t figure out. He was larger than life and had a booming laugh that would fill a room. He was a loyal friend and would do anything for those he cared about. Serving his community was very important and he always encouraged people to get involved and vote. Charles wintered in Florida and lived on his boat, always accompanied by his faithful dog Randy.

He is survived by his children: Connie (Robert) Poremba and Mark Groll; grandchildren: Allison (Ryan) Schley, Lindsay (Josh) Bechtel and Adeline Walter-Groll; great grandchildren: Jackson Bechtel and Nolan Bechtel; sister Barb Kennemur and several cousins.

Charles is preceded in death by his parents and his brother Richard Groll.

Graveside services will be Monday, February 18, 2019 at Drake Cemetery near Waldo at 11AM.

  • Chuck definitely enjoyed life. I worked with him at FCA and he was great to work (and laugh) with. Prayers and condolences for his family.

  • Chuck Groll was a computer genius and the most humble genius I ever met. In the multiple decades I worked with Chuck,I never heard a bad word spoken about him. Even though he excelled at his job ,he was never arrogant but always one of the “guys and gals”. once upon a time,I did Chuck a big favor and he never forgot it even though I never once brought it up. He was a pure people person and I grieve his loss. Even if you saw him only occasionally in the later years, it was always just picked up the conversation as if it was only yesterday at work. Rest in piece, my friend. Larry Geissler

  • To a great friend who never shyed away from offering support in anyway he was able. The Hines family has lost a very dear friend. Mark, Connie and family you are all in our thoughts.
