Charles “Chuck” Polzer, 77, of Mondovi, passed away peacefully Monday, July 6, 2020 at Mayo Hospital in Eau Claire.

Chuck was born in Durand, Wisconsin on November 17, 1942 to Anton and Helen Polzer. He grew up in Durand and graduated from Durand High School in 1961.

He entered the automobile business with his father and brothers before starting a Chevrolet dealership in Mondovi in 1968. Chuck remained in the automobile business until his retirement in 2010.

He enjoyed racing snowmobiles, wood working, NASCAR, all Wisconsin sports teams, and most importantly time spent with family and friends. Chuck will be remembered for his quick-wit, kindness, generosity, and big heart.
