Charles Joseph Casorzo
February 10, 1934-October 29, 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Charlie at the Campbell River Hospital on October 29, 2012.
He leaves to mourn his wife Beverley of 56 years, his sons Wade (Janet) and Dean, grandsons Bryce, Brett, Jason (Laura), great granddaughter Caleigh and extended family Jennifer and Rita.
Charlie was born February 10,1934 in South Wellington, B.C. At a young age the family moved to Comox Lake and then to Cumberland where Charlie grew up.
Charlie moved to Campbell River in 1955 where he was employed in the mill construction and later became an employee. Over the years Charlie worked in the mining, logging, fishing industry, and boat and car sales. In later years he was employed at the Harbourview gas barge.
Charlie was always game for his favourite pastime of playing Bridge.
The family would like to thank Dr.Walker, the Emergency Room doctors, and all the nurses and staff at the hospital for their wonderful care.
Many thanks to Janine and the homecare nurses for their support. We would also like to thank Pastor Art for his prayers and support during this difficult time.
There will be a Celebration of Life at the Campbell River Baptist Church, 260 South Dogwood St., Saturday November 17, 2012 at 2:00pm.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the C.R. Hospital Foundation or the Cancer Society would be appreciated.
