He also leaves behind a special friend, Colleen Matheson. Besides his parents, Charles was predeceased by brothers, Joe and Ricky; sisters, Winnie, Patsy, Frances, Milley; and godchild, Carrie McPhee. Charlie will be deeply missed by family and many friends. Dad loved his hockey and was an avid Montreal Canadiens fan. Tarbish won’t be the same at the Cedars Club without Dad.
