Chuck was sadly predeceased by his son Michael, his sister Rose, his brother Alfred, and his parent’s.
Chuck worked in the lumber mill industry as a sawyer for 50 years, until he retired in 1991. When he wasn’t working, he would find time for all kinds of fix it projects, back yard mechanics, wood crafts, from building our first home in Burnaby, building our first ski-boat, and to many other projects over the years.
He loved the outdoors, and often would go for hikes in the backwoods picking berries, or pan the local rivers and streams for gold. He enjoyed taking his family camping and boating, fishing and water sports.
The family would like to express their thanks for the compassionate care provided to dad by Dr. Macintosh and the staff at Cheam Village.
A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m. on July 27th 2011 at the Legion Branch 4
