About Charles Alan Stupsker

Charles A. Stupsker, 65, a lawyer who served as chief prosecutor for the city of Toledo and also as president of the Toledo and Lucas County Bar Associations, died Tuesday in the Hospice of Northwest Ohio, South Toledo.

Mr. Stupsker, of Sylvania, died from non-Hodgkins lymphoma, his wife, Susan Stupsker, said.

Mr. Stupsker was a lawyer for 40 years.

In 1967, he joined Toledo's law department, working on urban renewal matters. Three years later, he was named an assistant city prosecutor. In 1971, he was promoted to chief city prosecutor, a post he held until 1975.

"He was just so proud of the city," his daughter, Laura Stupsker, who lives in Los Angeles, said. "Every year, he used to send my sisters and I Toledo T-shirts and encourage us to wear them."

He was a member of the Sylvania Township zoning commission for over 20 years, and was president of the Lucas County Bar Association in 1983 and the Toledo Bar Association in 1997.

In private practice, he developed a particular expertise in the law relating to liquor licenses and small businesses.

"Charlie was known as a man of great knowledge and integrity," said Richard Cohen, an old friend who shared law offices with Mr. Stupsker for four years.

"With clients, he was absolutely unflappable. He had a great understanding of human nature."

Despite no family tradition in the legal profession, Mr. Stupsker seemed destined to practice law from an early age. He was born to Harry and Jeannette Stupsker on May 1, 1940, now known as Law Day.

He graduated from University of Michigan in 1962, where he majored in history. He received a law degree from Ohio State University in 1965.

For Mr. Stupsker, the law was a great way to meet and work with people.

"He always helped the underdog," his daughter, Hallie Stupsker, said. " He never turned people away, and he was so dedicated to his clients that he worked every Saturday for as long as I can remember."

In the last year of his life, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, but he refused to let it interfere with the work he enjoyed so much. He arranged his chemotherapy treatments around his client schedule and charmed the nurses into allowing him to give dictation to his secretary from his hospital bed, his wife said.

Surviving are his wife, Susan; daughters, Julie Stupsker, Laura Stupsker, and Hallie Stupsker; stepdaughter, Michelle James, and brother, Myron Stupsker.

Services will be at 10 a.m. today at Congregation B'nai Israel. The Wisniewski and Wick Funeral Homes is handling arrangements.

The family suggest tributes to the Toledo Area Metroparks or a charity of the donor's choice.
