Roscoe, IL/Janesville:
Charles A. Costello, age 55, of Roscoe, IL, and a former Janesville resident, passed away peacefully at his home Thursday, April 4, 2019, surrounded by family and friends following a courageous battle with cancer. He was born June 21, 1963 in Janesville, the son of the late Charles P. & Arlene N. (Douglas) Costello. He attended school in Janesville, and was a graduate of Craig High School, Class of 1981.
Charlie worked for General Motors until the Janesville plant closure, and since has been employed as a welder for Chrysler Corp. in Belvidere, IL.
On June 19, 2015 he married the former Tammie M. Shearer in Rockford, IL.
He was a very adventurous person who loved the “adrenaline rush”-skydiving, motorcycles, roller coasters, anything that involved speed! He drove in races at Rockford Speedway for several years, but also loved working on cars in general. Charlie was a true history buff and wanted to visit as many National Parks as he could. He was a fan of music and had a wide range of taste for the music he enjoyed!
His greatest love was his family. Spending time with his wife, his children, siblings, and friends meant everything to him!
He is survived by his loving wife, Tammie; his children, Kaden Smothers-Costello. Marcus Smothers, Chuck Voight, Mike (Amy) Voight, Vanessa (Scott) Beckett, Joshua (Danielle) Brunette, and Jay (Meghan) Brunette; his 6 brothers and sisters, Cheryl (fiancé, Jim Lilburn) Hahn, Steve (Melissa) Costello, Mike (Michele) Costello, Kris (Matt) Hoium, Carrie (Dan) Craddick, and Patti (John) Brockhaus; his 7 grandchildren; his niece and Goddaughter, Lexi; his mother-in-law, Starr (Larry) Wilson; his sister-in-law, Michelle (Jason) Laseman; his “fur child” and buddy, Sakari; and by many nieces, nephews, and friends, including his very dear friends, Jeremy, Frank, and Tad.
A Celebration of Life gathering will take place from 4:00 until 8:00 P.M. on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at the WHITCOMB-LYNCH FUNERAL HOME & CREMATION SERVICES, where a Sharing of Memories will begin at 6:30 P.M. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Charlie’s name would be appreciated to his family.

Dearest Costello family, please accept our deepest sympathy and condolences for your loss. We didn’t know Charles, but if he was anything like his brother Mike, then words cannot express how much you will miss him. We pray the Lord will comfort and grant you the peace that passes all understanding. Jesus said he was the resurrection and the life and this we believe. I pray you will put your faith in him and know that Charles is with our Lord. Peace and love. Terry, Dawn and Jacob, Milwaukee, WI.
