JOSEPH HONORE ADOLPHE (AL) CHARRON August 9, 1918 July 3, 2013 Dad was born in Rivers, Manitoba to parents Jean Baptiste Charron and Marie Anne Fouillard. He is one of six children (Aldèa, Phil, Jeanette, Eugene- all deceased) and one loving brother Raymond. Many relatives dot the Canadian landscape with very interesting careers and ancestry. Each hopefully earning a positive legacy to be proud of, endeavouring to make the world a better place. Dad enjoyed his job as a draftsman at various levels and in various areas. His particular interests were in technology, outer space- rockets, etc., aviation, nature, music, and singing in choirs. He loved to walk and feed the "Canada Geese." Laurette (Laurie) Charron, mom, and her children Hélène (Helen), Francois (Francis) and Gérald always knew that his "faith" meant a lot to him. Therefore, instead of flowers, Dad would no doubt appreciate prayers offered in his name wherever you are in the faith of your chosen practice. A Memorial Service will be held Tuesday, July 9 at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel of Voyage Funeral Home, 220 Hespeler at Henderson Hwy. A Roman Catholic Mass will be offered in his name at a later date initiated by a family member at St. Ignatius RC. Thanks for all you've done for us, Dad!

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Thank you to aly for the wonderful memories he gave to our family. There will be a special place in our hearts forever. - Posted by: Russell and Karen Staines and family (Friends) on: Jul 06, 2013

  • Uncle Al was a fascinating, brilliant man and I always loved hearing his stories. He was a bit eccentric, but that is what I loved most about him. Few know how much he contributed to the war efforts and his role in helping to end it. He was very passionate, and while he was not afraid to express his opinion and take a stand on things he believed in, he smiled and laughed most of the time. He had a great smile and always had a twinkle in his eye that I'll never forget. I regret not being closer to have spent more time with him in the last few years, but I will always remember him fondly and will see him again one day. I love you uncle Al. Say hi to my Dad for me. - Posted by: Sheldon Charron (Nephew) on: Jul 06, 2013
