Charles “Buddy” Edward Tillman 52, of La Crosse WI lost his battle with cancer Wednesday November 24, 2021.

Buddy leaves a huge hole in the hearts of his family and friends who were always entertained by his stories and hilarious sense of humor. He truly brought the life to the party.

Charles (Buddy to many) was born April 26,1969 to Lottie Tillman in Laurel Mississippi.

Buddy was a standout individual during his time of life. He enjoyed great successes in his life. If there was one thing Buddy was, that was determined…. He worked until he could work no more.  No matter what the challenge or request, he gave his all to ensure he exceeded expectations whether for others or himself.

Charles was beloved by everyone who ever met or ran into him. An extraordinary father, a distinguished son, a tremendous brother, and an astounding best friend to all walks of life. No matter the circumstance, you’d always leave with something funny/crazy Buddy did while you were with him.

Charles is survived by his two beautiful daughters Charlene, and Sharissa, both of whom loved their father deeply. He is also survived by his wife Melissa, mother Lottie, brothers Lorenzo, Bruce (Rhonda), Jeffery, Issac, and Antonio; sisters Vanessa, Shelia, and Loretta (Tim) along with two Aunts Ann Wesley and Addy Tillman a host of nieces and nephews, a plethora of great nieces and nephews a gaggle of great-great nieces and nephews and many cousins and friends.

Buddy is now at peace joining his little sister and childhood best friend (Rhonda) his father Eugene, step – Father Clarence.

Oh, what a great time they are all having together.

Coulee Region Cremation Group is assisting the family.
