ENRIGHT, Charles Albert (aka Charlie, Chuck) - Just past his 91st birthday, dad left us peacefully, Monday, September 5, 2016.
Survived by, and always biggest fan of, Doris (Mank), his wife of 68 years.
Best dad ever to daughter Debs (Jim Peluch) and son Jeff.
Cherished Grandpa of his three grandchildren, Denais, Wesley and Anna.
Uncle Chuck and Uncle Charlie to many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by his father George (1942) and mother Lillian (Askin) (1967).
Dad was predeceased by all 8 of his siblings; brother Frank (2003) and sisters Grace (1996), Mable (2004), Shirley (1992), Maisie (1998), Julie (2003), Marina (1996) and Erlene (2010).
He was also predecesed by nephews Kerry and Allan. Dad was born September 1, 1925 in Toronto and raised in Cabbagetown in a house on Arnold Avenue.
Mom and dad were married August 28, 1948 in Kitchener. After living in various parts of Toronto, they later returned to Kitchener.
Perhaps it was fitting that the man who loved to make everyone laugh took up residence at Parkwood Veterans Hospital in London on April 1, 2015.
Heartfelt thanks go out to the many nurses, orderlies, staff and volunteers there who enhanced his life and genuinely cared for "Old Blue Eyes" during the past 17 months. Sincere appreciation is extended to Dr. Anna Pawelec-Brzychczy for her expertise, guidance and compassion.
Visitation will be held on Friday, September 9, 2016 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, Kitchener, and again on Saturday, September 10, 2016 from 4:15 until 5:15 p.m. with a celebration of life at 5:30 p.m. in the chapel of the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers (which he only planted when mom dragged him to the garden to do so), donations to The War Amps would be greatly appreciated.
"Lest We Forget".
