Known to most as Charlie, he moved to Happy Valley-Goose Bay in 1964 and quickly became involved in helping build the community.

Charlie was very interested in sports, both participating and and supporting local sporting teams. He developed many long lasting friendships. In 1969, Charlie became Deputy Mayor with the 3rd Elected Council of Happy Valley, where he continued to work for the betterment of the community that had become his home.

The 13th Council, Management and Staff of the Town of happy Valley-Goose Bay offer sincere condolences to Charlie’s family and friends.

In honor of his contribution, flags will fly at half-mast in front of the Town Hall until his cremation has taken place.
