Charles will always be remembered as a true gentleman and as a devoted Catholic. He was a hard working man who took great pride in providing for his family. He created many memories with his friends at the Celtic Club. He spent many years playing the organ for his parish choir. Charles’ passion for music and the arts will remain in the memories of all who knew him.
A special thank you to the Doctors and Nurses at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and Lakeridge Health Oshawa for all of their care and compassion.
