Charles “Charlie” Wiltberger, 82 years old of Las Vegas, NV and formerly of Fox
Lake, IL, passed away peacefully on January 24, 2024 at home surrounded by
family. He was born on February 4, 1941 to the late Dale and Flores Wiltberger.
Charlie very proudly served in the Air Force, stationed in Tripoli. After the service,
he worked for the Village of Round Lake where he met the love of his life, Karen
Watts. They married on February 14, 1964. Together they had 5 children and
were happily married until her death August 9, 2012.

business, C Wiltberger Upholstery in the early 1970’s. The business was sold in
1990 and they moved to Las Vegas, NV in 1991 where they continued doing
upholstery work until Charlie retired from The Rio as the head of the upholstery
department.
Charlie was very friendly and loved talking to people .He became instant friends
with everyone he met. He was selfless and would give whatever he had to
anyone who needed it, including risking his life to save a stranger from a burning
car.

thing he loved more than golf and visiting the casino was his family.
