On November 19th, 2023, Adam Edward Charles died unexpectedly in Baraboo, WI. He was 31 years old. Adam was born on August 31st, 1992, at Bellin Memorial Hospital in Green Bay, WI. He attended Appleton North High School and transitioned to home schooling at near end of his high school education. He joined the work force right out of high school starting at Valley Packaging Industries and then worked several jobs during his lifetime. Adam enjoyed talking about his work with his Kwik Trip and work friends; and he even started a Kwik Trip Facebook page. After several years working at Voith Paper Factory, he discussed his reasoning for changing jobs and was looking forward to the transition to his long-term goal next summer of working at the stables. It didn't matter his position or who his employer was, he tried to make it better and made many friends during the process of finding himself. His true calling and passion were his Equestrian skills. His long-term goal was to work full-time at a horse stable and own three horses.
Adam filled his time with taking care of his horse and love of his life -- Boots -- at Lucky Stables. If he wasn't at the Stable or at work, he was playing on his PlayStation and enjoyed many different games. If it was a good day for a bonfire outside, he was busy getting one ready as there is nothing like relaxing around a fire. Adam enjoyed his time with his family especially when we all got together at a park for a family grill out, he was really good at making the time fun with pranks and jokes. He also had many loving nieces and nephews that he loved to spend time with.
Adam is survived by his parents Kenneth F Charles, Sr of Bonduel, WI and Lorie A Doherty of Kimberly, WI; his siblings Tracy Andrews of Green Bay, WI, Renee Doherty of Green Bay, WI, Joshua Doherty of Appleton, WI, Jennifer Charles of Bonduel, WI, Kenneth Charles, Jr of Appleton, WI, Jonathan Charles of Green Bay, WI, Margaret Charles of Appleton, WI, and Scott Charles of Brandenton; as well as many aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces and cousins.
