Obituary for Joseph Charboneau

Joseph Charboneau, 83, of Lapeer (formerly of Cheboygan), died Saturday, April 14, 2018 – just six days after his beloved wife Leila passed.

Joseph was born February 13, 1935 in Detroit to William and Fern (Fry) Charboneau. He grew up in Cheboygan where he met and married Leila Rose Hart on August 17, 1957. Joseph proudly served his country in the US Army during the Korean War. Joe did many things during his life, but was best known for owning his own battery business for many years in Pontiac, then driving truck for Kamax in Lapeer. He retired in 1997, but couldn't just sit at home - for the last several years, he worked at Walmart in Lapeer in the bottle return room and as a greeter. Joe loved tractors of all types, and he especially loved old cars and hot rods. He was a do-it-yourselfer and could build or repair just about anything. He enjoyed traveling and was a nomad at heart. Joe made friends wherever he went. He was always upbeat, positive, and happy - all of his life. Joe was never seen without a smile on his face. He always thought he was so funny, which made everyone around him laugh. Joseph was put on this earth to take care of his beloved Leila Rose.

Mr. Charboneau is survived by his children: Mark (Kathleen) Charboneau; Steven Charboneau; Kelly (Allan) Davis; Lyn (Jeff) Hurley; Marlene Klutchko and Kim Petschonek, 14 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren; siblings: Maureen Therrian, Sue Pixley, Rose Diaz, Martha (Hugo) Gustin, Estelle (Clark) Clifford, Regina (Mike) Michelin, Carla Hile, Mike (Marlene) Charboneau and Viola (Loren) Baller. Mr. Charboneau was preceded in death by his dear wife, Leila Rose Charboneau on April 8, 2018; siblings: Sharon Sova and George Charboneau and his parents.

Mr. Charboneau's visitation will be from 4-8PM Wednesday, April18, 2018 at Muir Brothers Funeral Home, Lapeer. The rosary will be prayed 7PM Wednesday evening at Muir's. Joseph's funeral Mass will be 11:00AM Thursday, April 19, 2018 at Immaculate Conception Church, 814 West Nepessing Street, Lapeer, Michigan 48446. Burial will take place in Stiles Cemetery.
