was a free spirit, born in Barry's Bay Ontario.  He led an exciting, fun filled life, full of vigor and spontaniety.  Charlie knew the bush like the back of his hand.  Jim and Charlie met in the 70's working in construction, building houses.  Jim went on to work in the factories and Charlie off to the salt mine.  Charlie  brought a beautiful daughter and handsom son,  into the world who have grown to be wonderful contributors to society.

Through their time Jim, Charlie and Gerry (Tabernack) trekked through the bush on their yearly fishing trips.  The crazy antics were unparalleled.  The close friendships were unsurpassed.  Charlie was a great ally that would give you the shirt off of his back (and that is no exaggeration).  He will never be forgotten by anyone that has made his acquaintance, least of all me.  May he rest in peace.
