Charles "Chuck" W. Hein

April 18, 1953 — January 19, 2022

Charles "Chuck" Hein, 68, of Fort Recovery, Ohio passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at Mercer Health in Coldwater, Ohio.

Chuck was born on April 18, 1953, in Coldwater to the late Charles J. and Mildred (Reichert) Hein.

Chuck is survived by his wife of 37 years, Angelika Schade Hein; his two daughters, Kimbra Hein (Daniel Shelton) of Alpharetta, Georgia, and Amanda (Tony) Siegrist of Saint Henry; his three grandchildren, Adalyn, Theodore and Amelia, all of Saint Henry. Chuck was looking forward to meeting his fourth grandchild in June.

Chuck is also survived by his siblings, Barb Armstrong of Maineville, Ohio, Jon (Rose) Hein of Greenville, Ohio, Mary Beth McLaughlin of Cincinnati, Ohio, Margo (Doug) Johnson of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Dan (Amy) Hein of Cincinnati, Ohio; his father-in-law, Alfred Schade of Tipp City, Ohio; and his in-laws Rosemarie (Ted) Allen of Maineville, Ohio and Herbert (Susie) Mielke of Xenia, Ohio.

In addition to his parents, Chuck was preceded in death by his mother-in-law, Gisela Schade.

Chuck was an agency principal and owner of Fort Recovery Insurance. Starting with his father, Charlie, at Hein Insurance Agency, his passion for insurance led him to a fulfilling career of over 45 years. He was a long-standing fan of the University of Dayton Flyers and frequently attended games with his wife, Angelika. In his younger days, Chuck was a volunteer firefighter with Southwest Mercer Fire Department. Chuck was a member of Mary Help of Christians Catholic Church, where he served as a lector and eucharistic minister. He was also a 4th degree knight of the Fort Recovery Knights of Columbus.

Fort Recovery was his home for over 68 years. While he loved the town, his true passion was the people who make up the amazing community. Chuck could frequently be seen around Fort Recovery donning his contagious smile and greeting everyone he passed. He rarely met a stranger, and when he did, they didn't stay strangers for long. He loved making others smile and frequently found ways to make this happen.

A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at 10:30 AM on Monday, January 24, 2022, at Mary Help of Christians Catholic Church in Fort Recovery, with Father Ned Brown officiating.

For those who would prefer to join remotely, the Mass will be live streamed at www.fortrecoverycatholics.org/streamspot/.
