VINCENT ANTHONY CHARTIER It is with deep sadness the family announces the passing of a beloved husband, father, brother and friend. Vince passed away at the St. Boniface Hospital on Wednesday evening, November 29, 2017. Vince was born in Fort William on March 30, 1960. He spent his school years in the Toronto area. Then at the age of 17, he moved to Winnipeg to be with his siblings. He was predeceased by his father (Gus) in 1990 and his mother (Alice) in 1997. He is survived by his wife Deborah, after 32 years of marriage; his sons, Tyler and Everett; his father and mother-in-law, Bruce and Anne Routley; sisters, Sharon (Tom) Celeste, Sheila (Claude) and his brothers, Duane, Sheldon (Rita) and Kevin and many nieces and nephews and his goddaughter Angela (Marc); close friends, Wayne, Kathy, Eveline, Larry, John and Sharon. Vince had a passion for speed, he raced professional motocross bikes in his early teens all through the United States for team Suzuki. In his late twenties, he started to attend car races in Canada and US with his friends, Wayne, John and Larry. When his boys were born, he took them to the car races. Vince also had a passion for collecting cars, from die cast to petal cars. His love for cars pursued him to have a career in the automotive industry. In 1983, while having lunch at McDonald's, Vince met the other love of his life, Deborah. On September 21 1985, they married at Knox United Church. In 1988, they had their dream home built in North Kildonan, where they lived for 29 years and were lucky to be a part of a kind-hearted neighbourhood with wonderful neighbours. In 1995, their first son Tyler Bryce was born and three years later, Everett Parker was born. Vince loved to watch his boys play football, he said it was more enjoyable then watching professional football. He loved to have parties with his friends and family, there were many Grey Cup and Super Bowl parties. It was the perfect time to showcase his quick wit, he always had a one-liner. Vince also loved to shop. There were many years we attended Black Friday sales in Grand Forks and Fargo, and shopped in St. Thomas and Cozumal and other places. The family went on many holidays with Bruce and mom (Ann) and friends. Over the past four years, Vince fought a courage battle with his illness. He never complained and never gave up, however after using up his nine lives, his battle ended, with his family and friends by his side. A special thank you to the team of nurses and doctors at St. Boniface Hospital in the ICU and to Dr. Barry MacMillan. A celebration of his life will be held on Thursday, December 7 at 2:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main Street. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Vincent's memory may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association.

  • We just found out today April 11 that Vince had passed. We are truly sorry we never got a chance to say good bye to him or attend the memorial service. He was so decent and honest and always stayed to chat with us when he dropped our car off. He never rushed us for payment when he knew times were tough for us. WE will miss Vince very much and doubt we will ever find another mechanic like him. So sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Sharon Segal and Steve Moscovitch (clients) on: Apr 11, 2018

  • My condolences to Vince's family. I share the sadness as you grieve the loss of a husband and father. Vince was special, so honest, and one of a kind. After my husband died, I had to take over the maintenance of my car. I had no idea who or where.Then my son introduced me to Vince and the rest is history. I trusted him implicitly and he took care of my cars for twenty years. Over that time, he became a friend and we had many interesting conversations. He will be missed by many. I hope that you, his family, will find comfort in many wonderful memories. Sincerely, Shirley Augustine. - Posted by: Shirley Augustine (Customer and friend....) on: Dec 04, 2017
