Condolences & Memories (7 entries)
To Mrs Appelt my deepest sympathy goes out you and and your entire family on the loss of your husband, I miss walking to your back and ringing your bell and leaving your meals in the container for you for the past 2 years. When I read your husband's obit I knew it was the right Appelt when it said you lived in St. James. - Posted by: Joan Porteous (Meals on Wheels delivery lady Tuesdays and Thursdays) on: Nov 30, 2021
My dad and I both worked with Charles at the Winnipeg arena and the Bomber stadium. We both have such fond memories from that time. You will be missed Charles. Our condolences to the entire family. - Posted by: Karen Letham (Co-worker) on: Nov 28, 2021
Dear Judy, Blake, Leslie and family, I'm sad to hear of Charles passing. I often think of my bowling friends and I remember Charles fondly. The times he drove me home from the Arena or St. James lanes were always appreciated. He was a kind, hard-working man who put family above everything. He had a good, dry sense of humor too, lol. You are fortunate that you all have so many great memories of life with Charles. I think of you all often, the fun we had as friends and co-workers. My sincere condolences go to you all at this difficult time. - Posted by: Janis Richards (Friend/bowler/co-worker) on: Nov 27, 2021

I worked with Charles and his children at Winnipeg Arena and MTS Center for lots of years. Charles was a very quiet man with a great personality. Blake and Leana was also fun to work with. Did not know Zleana passed away and sorry for Charles. They will be united again. RIP both of you and will always remember them with fondness. - Posted by: Barrie Cooke (Worked with Charles, Blake and Liana at the arena's for several years.

Judy, Trina and the rest of the family, I offer my heartfelt condolences to you all. I met Charles when I first started 5 pin bowling on the Thursday night league. He was a kind soul with a sense of humor. He was an amazing bowler who provided many tips to improve my game. It has been a few years since I last saw him but I always asked Trina about him and Judy whenever we got together. Take care of each other! - Posted by: Bernie Smith (Friend) on: Nov 25, 2021
