Charles W. Rauscher, 81, of Belle Vernon, passed away March 13, 2022, in his home.
Born December 6, 1940 in Charleroi PA, a son of the late Maynard and Ruth Rauscher.
An automobile enthusiast from a very early age in which he was a mechanic, and a detailer for many years at multiple dealerships in the area, sold insurance for a brief stint, and operated his own Sunoco Service Station. Always being asked “Do you do repair work here, it’s too clean to be a service station”. He also was a member of the Charleroi and Coudersport Lodges.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Nancy Ann (Anderson) Rauscher in 1979; sister Muriel Rauscher; and a very close uncle, Merle Rauscher, of whom they sent humorous cards back and forth for many years and shared many laughs over the phone.
He is survived by his long-term partner, Nancy Rostcheck; daughters, Valerie Lynn Rauscher of Rochester PA and Kristen D. Rauscher of California; 2 grandchildren, Kaleb (Shawnna) McBride of Beaver Falls PA and Jonas (Tori) McBride of Rochester PA; great granddaughter, Emilia Ira McBride; and a very close cousin Kurt (Patti) Rauscher, Bokeelia FL.
