November 17, 1938 ~ October 25, 2015
Passed away peacefully on October 25, 2015 at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Born in Lanarkshire, Scotland on November 17, 1938, he immigrated to Canada with his family in November 1951, living first in Lumby, then moving to Cumberland the following year.
Charlie worked as a logger, longshoreman and machine operator, retiring from Elk Falls Mill. In his younger days he was involved in basketball, soccer, softball and the Cumberland Kinsmen. Later in life he was an avid golfer and member of the Millionaires Club at Sunnydale. He loved gardening and wood carving, and maintained a strong attachment to his family in Scotland his whole life. He had a wonderful sense of humour and loved to have fun. He will always be remembered as a great story teller.
He is predeceased by his parents, Charlie and Grace, and his brother, Bill. Charlie is survived by his loving wife of nearly 49 years, Joan, and children Kerri (Eric), Cathy (Stan) and Rob (Brenda), grandchildren
Michael, Jordan, Matthew, Katie, Erin, and Gillian, great grandchildren Linden, Amelia and Annabelle, and granddog, Hagrid. All his grand-
children and great grandchildren were so precious to him and he loved every minute he spent with them. They loved him so much and will miss him dearly.
No service at the request of Charlie and the family.
