In his retirement years, Chuck enjoyed volunteering at St. Francis Table in Toronto.

Beloved “Foster Uncle ” and “Great Uncle ” of Suzanne and Emersyn Gill of Meaford. Uncle Chuck, as he was known, was a huge lover of animals and had a number of very well cared for dogs and cats over the years. He will be remembered as a soft spoken and very kind man.
