<div itemprop="description">Elliott, Charles “Charlie” <br>1936-2019 <br>65 Year Member of the International Union of Operating Engineers - Local 793 Ontario. <br> <br>Charlie passed suddenly and unexpectedly on Friday, February 22, 2019, at home.(Which is exactly how he wanted it, and we all know how he liked to be the boss) <br>He is so loved and will be so greatly missed by his sisters Mary-Helen, (Greg Colbourne) and Lorna Elliott. He’s now catching up and having a laugh with his two brothers, Joe and Bernie Elliott, who he missed so much and spoke of often. He was the best Uncle (but more like a Father) to Shelly, (Dale Boothby) and Erica (Sean Brennan) and the quirkiest Great Uncle to Emma, (Nick) and Karlie Drummond, as well as Brody and Wade Brennan. <br>Charlie loved to wander around Carleton Place and Almonte, stopping to chat with, well anyone who would listen really! He’d tell you like it was, even if it was only that way in his world. He was always showing his outrageous sense of humor with his funny sayings and made up stories that usually involved him being some sort of VIP or war hero. (You were safe to bet when he gave you that silly smile you knew he was making it up.) <br>As Charlie wished, there will be no formal services. Trust us on this one. He drilled it into our heads that nothing was to be done! <br>For those that wish, memorial donations in his honor to the Down Syndrome Clinic at CHEO would be appreciated. <br>We’re going to miss the daily (let’s be serious, they were hourly) phone calls. Even when he was just calling to lecture you about keeping windshield washer fluid in your car at all times because “you’re worse off running out of that in the winter than gas ya know” or how “that highway 7 is the most dangerous road in the world.” <br>We love you to Vancouver and back, and we’ll “see ya in the movies” Uncle Charlie. <br></div>
