Charles Barry Churchill
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear husband, father, Pappy and Papa.
Barry was born into the pioneer Janes family in the Comox Valley on July 18, 1939 to Mavis and Hi Churchill.
Barry worked in the logging industry most of his life, as a faller and truck driver.
In his younger years he enjoyed stock car racing, horseback riding, hunting and fishing. He was very involved in the community as a 4-H Club leader, the Comox Valley Fish and Game Club and the Comox Valley Riding Club.
Barry retired in 2001 and you could often find him having coffee with the “guys” at A&W North, the Merville Store or both!
Barry’s other passion was his family. Barry leaves his loving wife of 48 years, Faye. His children; Donna, Charlie, Leah (Lawrence) and Gina (David); grandchildren; Nicole (Jeremiah), Deidre (Derek), Ryan, Mariah, Dawson, Maddisen, Olivia, Lauren, Liam and his “morning Buddy”, Isabella, his great grandchildren; Brandon, Josiah, Maddie and Aurora, Jordan and Kaden, also numerous nieces and nephews, especially nephew Chad MacDougall, who shared his uncle Barry’s love for the outdoors.
Barry is predeceased by his parents. Mavis and Hi, his daughter Sandra, great granddaughter Cheyenne, his favorite uncle Dave Janes and his nephew Darryl Morrison with whom he shared a special bond.
A gathering in Barry’s memory for close family and friends will take place on October 13th, 2013 at Barry’s home from 1-4PM.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of your choice.
