Charles A. Buettner, 68, of Charlotte, passed away on Saturday, July 18, 2020 in Charlotte, NC. He was born in Queens, NY to the late Charles Buettner and Frances Wojcieszak Buettner.

Charles was a skilled craftsman, making his living as a contractor in the construction industry. He found joy in music and riding motorcycles. Those who were lucky enough to know Charles knew that he was larger than life. His generosity and kindness were beyond measure. He was thoughtful and considerate and always put others before himself.

Charles is survived by his daughter, Danielle and her husband David Ambrose of Pottstown, PA; grandsons, Mason and Preston Ambrose; his three brothers, Gerard Buettner and his partner John Nelson of Bohemia, NY, Raymond Buettner and Kenneth Buettner, both of Charlotte; and his nephew, Christopher Buettner, wife Corie, and their children, Camden and Cole.

In lieu of flowers, please continue to shine Charles’ light in the world. Perform acts of kindness for others in his memory. A private celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Carolina Cremation of Charlotte and Salisbury is assisting the Buettner family. Online condolences may be made at
