Charles “Chuck” L. Rebsch, 61, Fargo passed away Monday, June 1, 2020 at Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio after a brave and heroic battle with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
He was born October 18, 1958 in Northwood, North Dakota to Elmer and Vivian (Bahr) Rebsch. His childhood was spent on his family farm (rural Thompson, ND) celebrating faith and family. He graduated from Northwood High School in 1976. He attended NDSU before graduating from North Dakota State School of Science. He married Nadine Nelson on June 19, 1982 at St. John Lutheran Church, Hatton, North Dakota. They welcomed two daughters, Amy and Cara, and together built a beautiful family and life in Fargo, ND.
Chuck’s strong work ethic and professionalism will always be remembered. He worked for Houston Engineering for 36 years in a variety of capacities, most recently as a professional land surveyor and project manager. Chuck served in various leadership roles including president of North Dakota Society of Professional Land Surveyors and council member and president of Olivet Lutheran Church in Fargo. Chuck was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need and a smile to everyone.
While Chuck was an avid NDSU Bison football fan, traveling around the country with his friends cheering on his team, his priority was his family. He loved spending time with them, especially in his role as Grandpa. He had a strong faith and a love for music and had fun wherever he went. Chuck was known to be friendly, kind, gentle, confident, fun, and loyal. He will be greatly missed by his family and everyone whose lives were touched by him.
