Job opportunities took the family to a variety of communities in Alberta and British Columbia. Charlie took work seriously and tried numerous ventures both as an employee and as an entrepreneur.
Charlie had a short but valiant fight against cancer and passed away with his wife and daughters by his side on January 30, 2015. Charlie was predeceased by son, Bill, in 1996. Heis survived by his wife, Doreen and their daughters and families.
Thanks and appreciation go to his medical team (Dr. Levins and Dr. McLellan) as well as the nurses and care aides who provided excellent care.

Doreen and family –
So sorry for your loss. We have fond memories of Chuck.
A visit with Charles and Doreen was always a great time. To all the family I offer my sympathy and support in your loss.
I had the opportunity to spend time with Uncle Charlie last spring when he, Aunt Doreen and my lovely cousins came to stay with me for a brief period. It was clearly evident how much he loved and was proud of all his ‘girls’. My sympathies to Aunt Doreen, Janice, Donna and Patty and family in your time of great loss.
Charlie will be missed by us, he was always a great host when we came to visit. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Doreen and family.
