Charles S. “Chuck” Pansino, 58, of Bartlett, formerly of Hillside, died on Thursday, May 7th, 2020 from a 20 year battle with Multiple Sclerosis.

A Memorial Mass will take place at a later date.

Chuck is the beloved husband of Diane A. nee Haarth for 33 years; cherished father of Charles “Charley” and Nicholas “Nick; dearest brother of John (Marie) and the late Frank (Lori); and loving uncle of many nieces and nephews.

Chuck was a loving son of and  preceded in death by his parents Charles “Charley”  a war Veteran and Rose nee Gibellina.

A man of many words, he always had something to say to enlighten a conversation. He was the life of every party and always made sure everyone had a great time.  All the laughs from stories he would tell with effortless delivery. He was an all-around funny, loving, emotional man with an invigorating smile that brought joy to anyone around him.

He loved to travel with his family, and experience the outdoors. Camping, hiking, grilling, picnics, sports, going to the beach, and occasionally lighting up a fat cigar. He absolutely loved food, and made sure everybody ate everything on their plate and if they didn’t, he would!

Chuck was an active listener of many artists that inspired his two boys to become musicians. Music was a big part of his life that bonded him with close friends and family.

He was genuinely interested in people’s lives, and cared for their well-being. His big smiles will always be remembered, and his dedication to his wife, his children, and his entire family will never be forgotten.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Chuck’s name to: or Myelin Repair Foundation 20111 Edinburgh Drive Saratoga, CA 95070

Arrangements were made by Brust Funeral Home, 135 S. Main St, Lombard.

    Chuck was such a good boy in his youth, and grew to be a good man. He was always kind-hearted and caring throughout his life. His family always came first, and his love for his wife and boys gave him the daily strength to go into battle. I will always remember our childhood years, our teenage antics, our adult relationship, and will continue to share the stories that will keep Chuck forever, in our lives. He will be missed…

    I’m deeply saddened by Chuck’s passing. Chuck and I grew up together from Kindergarten and we would often play in “George’s Woods” growing up behind his house. I remember Chuck being a special person even as a child and it certainly has been expressed here and by others. I left Hillside in 1980 and regret not staying closer in contact with Chuck. May he rest in peace and my prayers are with all his family and friends. Heaven just received a beautiful soul.
