QUINTON CHARNEY

It is with sadness and love we say goodbye to our beloved dad and grandpa, Quinton Charney, who passed away on April 15, 2019, at the age of 82 years.
Quinton was predeceased by his beloved wife Olly. He will live on in the hearts and memories of his children, Donna (Cam), Russell, Holly (Chris), and his dear grandchildren, Olivia, Russell, Aydin, Hudson and Dexter.
Quinty, as he is lovingly known by his friends and family, was born May 15, 1936, in Cooks Creek, Manitoba. Growing up poor, Quinty found value in his life through friendships, being a master repairman, and hockey. Quinty could not afford skates as a child, and as a result, he was an undefeated goalie on the creek, as he would brag to his grandsons. You would often find him in his basement watching the hockey game or sitting in his favourite spot listening to CJOB while reading the newspaper.
As a child, he attended Melrose School where he met Olly Krawec, and they were married August 12, 1961. Quinty and Olly had three children, Donna, Russell and Holly, whose photos he would keep in his wallet and proudly share with anyone who asked about them. He enjoyed spending time with his family, his nephew, nieces, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law.
Quinty was always a provider for his family, and he did that very well. People say "jack-of-all-trades, master of none," but Quinty was a master of EVERYTHING. He worked as a mechanic, a drywaller, and worked for many years for Koreman Concrete. You could not tell Quinty about something being broken without him writing it down in the top of his cigarette pack and coming over moments later with a truck full of supplies. He passed these skills on to his children and grandchildren who have a keen knack for creative fixing. He valued his relationships above all else and especially loved driving his black truck VERY SLOWLY to OakBank to have coffee with his friends, or down the road to have a Pepsi with his grandkids, Olivia, Russell, Aydin, Hudson and Dexter. A man of few words, Quinty still loved being a part of the action whether it be playing foosball, picking up tools and supplies someone dropped on the highway, or walking with his hands in his pockets, jingling his pocket change, at every event in Cooks Creek.
He will be dearly missed by friends and family. The amount of support and visitors that came to the hospital was an amazing reflection of the impact he had.
A celebration of Quinty's life will take place on Saturday, April 20, 2019 at Seasons Funeral Chapel, 576 Balsam Crescent in OakBank. Please come by anytime between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. for some lunch and to share your memories of Quinty with his kids and grandkids.
Quinty will be laid to rest beside his wife Olly at the Immaculate Conception Ukrainian Catholic Church Cemetery in Cooks Creek.
In lieu of flowers, we ask you to donate to Cooks Creek Heritage Museum or Cooks Creek Community Centre.

I said to hang on as I headed toward the ditch..who should stop and help drive the car onto the road was your father...that was the kind of man he was..always willing to help anyone in need..we will never forget. May the memories of your wonderful dad comfort you and your family in the years to come...Heather and Jules Burnell ..Michael, Janice and Lori.. - Posted by: Heather Burnell(Smalby) (Friend) on: Apr 21, 2019

  • Deep sympathies to my cousins and all their loved ones. I only met Quinton a few times in Winnipeg at my parents’ home. We liked each other. Now, since I am a long time Torontonian, I have reconnected with another cousin, Henrietta Charney. Quinton and Henrietta are first cousins; I am a second cousin. Henrietta’s father Andrew, and my father Joseph, were first cousins. I believe that their fathers were brothers. My husband Todd and I will be back in Toronto next weekend. If anyone wants to speak with me, I’d love to share: 416-762-3571. - Posted by: Lillian M Hrabchak (nee Charney) (Cousin) on: Apr 20, 2019
