Charles Gagne of Calgary passed away on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at the age of 94 years.
Charles was a vibrant, vigorous and humorous man. He lived a long, happy life during which he enjoyed extensive travel, served his country in war-time and gave tremendous loyalty and support to his wife Rose, daughter, Teresa, son Wally and grand-daughter Suzanne.
