Charles M “Chuckles” Topcik passed away on September 1, 2020. Born in Detroit, MI to the late Esther and Jack Topcik.

By profession, he was an accountant, but his hobbies were watching the stock market and collecting antique cameras. He was a proud Mason for over 50 years in both the Grotto and Kosair Shrine fraternal organizations and was a member of Keneseth Israel Congregation. He spent many years visiting children in hospitals as Chuckles the Clown and involved with Camp Quality.  His dedication to clowning and volunteerism inspired his family to continue his legacy of helping others. He enjoyed spending holidays and celebrations with his immediate and large extended family!

He was preceded in death by his young daughter, Laura.  He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Evie Lou Topcik; Carolyn (Kevin) Bleicher of Boulder, CO; Jeanne (Scott) Aronoff of Mason, OH and Deborah Topcik of Washington DC. He is also survived by his two grandsons, Andrew and Samuel Aronoff of Mason, OH; his sister, Marcia Topcik of Las Vegas, NV and a niece and nephew. He’ll be missed by many cousins and extended family. A special thanks to Mike Keith.

“A Smile is Love” is a quote that exemplified his outlook on life.   To honor his memory, let’s all smile!

Donations may be made to Keneseth Israel Congregation or Kosair Charities, in his honor.

Graveside service will be held on Thursday, September 3, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. at Keneseth Israel Cemetery.  Due to Covid-19 restrictions, in-person funeral services will be limited.   The service will be available on Zoom by invitation from the familFacebook Live on our Facebook Page,  https://www.facebook.com/HermanMeyerSon/

May his memory be a blessing.
