Charles “Chuck” Romig passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on October 29, 2023, in Fayetteville, North Carolina at the age of 80.
Chuck is survived by three siblings, Carol Ringle of Rochester, Indiana, Jon (Cindy) Romig of Argos, Indiana, and Roger “Francis” (Julie) Romig of Culver, Indiana; three children, Scot (Sommer) Romig of Coinjock, NC, Stefanie (Jeffrey) Smith of Hope Mills, NC, and Steven (Jihan) Romig of Geneva, Switzerland. He is also survived by nine grandchildren: Zachary Romig of Savanah, GA, Bradley (Jordan) Romig of Fort Wainwright, Alaska, Maicie (Santiago) Fabella of Clarksville, TN, Zachary Hahn of San Diego, CA, Eric Smith and Steven Smith of Hope Mills, NC, Lee (Aryn) Smith of Thomasville, NC, Jason Romig and Kendra Romig of Pordenone, Italy, and two great-grandchildren, Auggie Smith of Thomasville, NC and Finley Fabella of Clarksville, TN. He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl Romig and Margaret (Dygert) Romig Miller; his beloved wife, Judy; one sister, Marla; and one grandson, Dominick.
Chuck was born on June 5, 1943, in Argos, Indiana to Carl Romig and Margaret (Dygert) Romig Miller. He graduated from Argos High School and joined the Navy where he served on the USS Enterprise and the USS Suribachi. Chuck left the Navy after four years and after a nine-year service break, he joined the US Army which he retired from after 23 years of service to his country.
On June 25, 1963, Chuck married Judy Mangun, the love of his life and they were happily married for 37 years until cancer stole her from him on July 20, 2000. Chuck never remarried, loving Judy until his final breath.
Chuck was an avid reader and loved history. He enjoyed reading about military, aviation, and ancient Egyptian history. He also enjoyed watching sports, but none more than his Notre Dame Fighting Irish (GO Irish!). The biggest passion for Chuck was his family. His children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were his world.
There will be no memorial service, at his request, and he and Judy will be interred at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of Liberty Hospice in Fayetteville, NC for the care and support they provided Chuck and his family during this difficult time as well as the nurses and staff of Woodlands Nursing & Rehabilitation Center for the love and care they provided to him and his family.
