Harrison, Charles (Chuck) Alfred

Charles (Chuck) Alfred Harrison went to be with his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on Sunday, September 25, 2005. Chuck leaves to mourn his beloved wife of forty-two years, Christine; children, Cheryl (Cam), Craig (Karen), and Coryn (Barry); and grandchildren, Caine, Finn, Carter, and Harrison. Chuck will be sadly missed by his brothers and sisters, Agnes (Bill) Cooper, Shirley (George) Sinfield, George (Delores) Harrison, Robert (Arlene) Harrison, and Sandra (Vic) Matthews.

Chuck “Charlie Hustle” played professional football (CFL) for the Ottawa Roughriders for two years, and spent another seven with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He also enjoyed a successful career as an Industrial Engineer for the National Research Council.

In addition, he has volunteered as a football coach at Pee Wee, Bantam, and high school levels and also at the University of Manitoba.

    I am speechless! I had no idea you had left. My prayers are with the entire family! It has been many years since our families had been together and several since your passing but we think and speak of you and your family often.
    Mr. Harrison was a wonderful man and looks like he continued that beyond our childhood when Coryn and I would spend most our free time playing. Very honored to have met and known him for the years I did.
    Thank you for coaching us in Ringette. Your knowledge of all sports was unlimited!
    You are a wonderful family! Take care!

    I too am so sorry to hear that Chuck is gone but so happy that I will see him again. Chuck had a wonderful faith and often encouraged me. Barbara and I were living out of the country back in 2005 and really I did not know about this until now when I was watching the Calgary-Lions game and Chuck and Chris and the Bombers came to mind. I remember so fondly the time I tried to pull Chuck up water skiing at our cottage and couldn’t because he was just too big and too powerful. Chuck would stand up on his water skis and the boat would virtually stop. We laughed and laughed. If you would like to contact us Chris it would be great to talk to you. God Bless you.
