Obituary for Lou Charlton
Passed away peacefully at Sunnyside Home in his 93rd year.
Beloved husband of the late Catherine "Kit" for 58 years.
Proud father of Greg and his wife, Bonnie of Southampton, Kathy and her husband, Drew Ferron of Salt Lake City, and Dave and his wife, Donna of Kitchener.
Loving Grandpa of Rory (Kerry) and Jordan, MacKenzie and Savannah Ferron, and Kelci, Spencer and Macy.
Cherished Great-grandpa of Brielle, Harmony and Kaydence.
Survived by his sisters-in-law, Pat Charlton, Shirley Mills and Lily Sergas.
Lou will be remembered by many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Predeceased by his parents, William and Eleanor, and his siblings, Russ Charlton, Lee Chapman (George) and Vi Cressman (Robert).
Lou proudly served on the frigate HMCS Levis during WWII. Following the war, he soon began working for MacDonald Electric where he serviced many businesses throughout southwestern Ontario. He retired from there after 40 years.
All who knew Lou will fondly remember his passion for sports, especially fishing and golf, and his love of vegetable gardening. He loved nothing more than to sit outside in the backyard, listening to the Blue Jays on the radio, watching out for "Big Red", the neighbourhood cardinal and watching his tomatoes grow while enjoying a nice cold Crystal. He had many friends to spend time with like the Monday morning coffee group, his Golden Oldies at Rockway as well as his fishing buddies. He often visited the guys at the Legion Branch 50 and the Moose Lodge.
The family would like to give their heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the staff and doctors at Sunnyside for their loving care of Dad these last 2 plus years. You have become a cherished extension of our family.
