Charles E. L. Weir
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Charles Weir, beloved husband of Irene, on September 13, 2017, in his 93rd year. Loving father of Sharyn Irvine (Bill), Judith Peelar (Richard), Coleen Marzec, and Wendy Fleming (Dennis). He was loved by his seven Grandchildren and eight great grandchildren; a loving uncle and friend to many who will miss him greatly.
Charlie served with the Essex Scottish 2nd Division in Canada and overseas through Holland and Germany. Following his military service, he worked on CP Rail for 30 years and made many friends. Upon retirement we moved to apartment life in Cherryhill, started to travel extensively and Charlie began his hobby of woodworking which he enjoyed and continued to do so at Parkwood. His special enjoyment was time spent with family at the cottage in the north with many happy memories.
We would like to thank the exceptional nurses and support staff at Parkwood Veteran’s Wing for the constant loving care and support to Charlie and our family.
At Charlie’s request, there will be no public funeral. Cremation has taken place and interment will be at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, 303 Riverside Drive, London, Ontario.
