Charles (C. G.) Simpson
July 14, 1941- February 9, 2014
The family of Charles Simpson are sad to announce his recent passing at 72 years of age. Charles passed away peacefully at his home, surrounded by friends and family, following a courageous battle with cancer. Charles is predeceased by his parents, Richie and Ruby, of Oxford, Nova Scotia, and his sister, Kathleen, of Campbell River. Charles is survived by his son, Daryl (Danielle) of Campbell River and will be missed by many close friends.
Charlie was born and raised in Oxford, Nova Scotia and was drawn to the west coast of Canada as a young man by his Uncle Loran of Comox. Charles moved permanently to Campbell River in 1972. He purchased his first home in Willow Point shortly thereafter and started a family in 1975. Just like his own father, Charlie always enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping in his free time.
Charles was an extremely hard worker; owning and operating logging trucks through the 80’s and 90’s before venturing to northern B.C. to work in the oil and gas industry. Charlie then enjoyed a brief retirement back home in Oxford, Nova Scotia in 2007. In 2011 Charles was again drawn back to Campbell River to be closer to his son, Daryl.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Coachman Pub in the Carriage Room on Sunday, March 9, 2014 at 12:30 in the afternoon. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation or to the Canadian Red Cross.
