Charles Lepisto

June 30, 1973 — November 3, 2023

Charles (Chuck) Alexander Lepisto IV, was born June 30, 1973 in Oswego N.Y. He resided in Baton Rouge, La. from 1979 until his untimely death on November 3, 2023.

Chuck is survived by his wife Julie (Maillet) Lepisto, son Charles (Alex) Alexander Lepisto V, stepdaughter, Caitlyn Rogers, father, Charles A.Lepisto III and his wife Mary of Lititz Pa., mother, Lynne (Nicholas) Griffon and her husband Les of Sapphire, North Carolina, sister Sara Lepisto and husband Chris Hiers of Pensacola, Fl., step-brothers Shane Griffon and Jansen Griffon, mother-in-law Diana(Brocato) Hurston of Baton Rouge, Louisiana., father-in-law Gilbert (Pappy) Maillet of Marksville, La, brother in law Brian Maillet, wife Peggy, and their children Olivia, Ruby, and Louis of Whitefish Bay, WI.
Chuck was a 1991 graduate from Central High School and attended Southeastern Louisiana University.

He distinguished himself in the car audio & home theater business for more than 25 years, most recently managing operations at All Pro Audio in Zachery, La. His dedication, honesty, skills and customer service were exceptional.

Chuck was a beautiful human being. He was an exceptional father, step-father, and dedicated husband. He had unwavering love and compassion for his family. He made each member of his family feel abundantly loved and valued. He unselfishly extended himself to help friends in need. Since a young man he was always there to offer unconditional support to friends when they experienced loss. Chuck treated everyone equally and with respect.

Chuck had a special sense of humor and could make anyone laugh and often did.
With his quick wit and ability to embellish real life situations he truly had a gift. We will remember this fondly in conversation when we can all smile again.

He loved to explore recipes on YouTube and cook on his Kamado Joe. He kept an immaculate lawn and landscape and was always cleaning, straightening and decluttering.

Above all, Chuck cherished time with his family, often traveling to visit them (even though flying on airplanes was not his favorite activity.)

He loved and will always remember his boxer dog Boss and was truly heartbroken when he passed away.

Chuck’s legacy is both simple and powerful. It is the enduring bright light he left in every heart that knew him.
