He was a beloved husband to Rosemary for 65 years and a loving father to Jocelyn (Don) and Deb (Kevin).

Charlie was proud to be both an Ulsterman and a Canadian. He was a life member of the CMA (Canadian Medical Association) and the RIA (Revenue Integrity Association). He held various positions during his professional career, including Treasurer and CEO of the Region of Haldimand Norfolk. Charlie was a loyal supporter of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Blue Jays, and U.K. soccer. He had many hobbies and interests, including curling, golfing, being a Rotarian, and being an avid reader, stamp collector, music composer, and cat lover. In accordance with his wishes, cremation has already taken place, and there will be no visitation or service. The Ferris Funeral Home, located at 214 Norfolk St. S., Simcoe, has been entrusted with the arrangements.

The family would like to extend sincere thanks to Dr. Theng, Dr. Bard, Dr. Bobby, and the caring staff at Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home for their support and care.

In remembrance of Charles, an Irish Blessing is shared:
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
