Charly Turcotte passed away on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 at 65 years of age with his wife and daughters by his side.
He was born in Beardmore, Ont. where he was raised with his nine brothers and three sisters.
He went to college in Thunder Bay where he met the love of his life, Lorraine, whose family became his own. They were married for 45 years this summer and are truly best friends and soul mates.
He has three children, Aley, Kyle, and Yvonne; two son-in-laws, Scott, and Brian; and five grandchildren, Presley, Pearson, Peyton, Halle and Emerson, who all loved to play with their grandpa.
Charly's joyous spirit is eternal. He stopped on his journey to meet us, love us, and share his vibrant and positive presence.
He enriched everyone's lives with kindness, laughter and humorous story-telling.
He will continue to be with us everyday.
Charly had a sparkle in his eye and loved life. He was always happy and smiling. His positive and giving personality was infectious.
He loved to spend time with his family and be outdoors. Hunting with his brothers, son and nephews was very special to him.
We find comfort knowing that he was met in heaven by his son, Kyle.
Funeral Mass was recited on Monday, July 30, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 2573, Tod Mountain Rd, Heffley Creek, B.C. Monsignor Jerry Desmond was Celebrant.
