Obituary for Anthony J. "Tony" DuCharme

Anthony J. "Tony" DuCharme
Anthony J. "Tony" DuCharme, 40, of La Crosse, formerly of West Salem, passed away unexpectedly Thursday, August 4, 2011.
He was born October 3, 1970, in La Crosse to Robert and Linda (Rhodes) DuCharme.  Tony was a 1989 graduate of West Salem High School.  He was an avid Tony Stewart fan who enjoyed playing guitar, singing, golfing, and playing pool and darts.  Most of all, he will miss spending time with his son, Josh, whom he loved very much.  Tony was a people pleaser who would do anything for anyone.  Despite the difficulties that life presented, he would minimize his problems and always had a smile for someone else.
Survivors include his son, Josh and Josh's mother, Wendy Knudtson; his father, Robert (Dennie) DuCharme; two sisters, Angie (Neil) Roggensack and Jennifer Goede (Jim Frisch); six brothers, Bob (Dori) DuCharme, Dan DuCharme, Tim DuCharme, David DuCharme (friend, Karen), Denae (Melissa) DuCharme, and Norm (Amy) Goede; five step-siblings, Mike, Theresa, Jeff, Lisa, and Bobby; and nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his mother and step-father, Linda and Norm Goede and his grandparents.
A memorial visitation for Tony will be held on Monday, August 8, 2011, from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 Jandt-Fredrickson Funeral Home, (Jostad Chapel), 121 N. Youlon St., West Salem.  A private family graveside service and burial will be held at a later date in St. John's Lutheran Cemetery, Barre Mills.  In lieu of flowers, memorials are graciously appreciated.  Online condolences may be sent at
