2013 – Cochrane, AB
Chuck of Cochrane, AB, passed away on December 9, 2013 at the age of 55 years.
Chuck was born in Barrie, ON and grew up in Richmond Hill where he attended Bayview secondary school. He was the captain of the perfect record Bayview Bengals 0 and 6 football team. Chuck graduated from the University of Guelph with his degree in Kinesiology. This was the foundation for his success as a pharmaceutical salesman when he proudly earned top sales recognition within Canada. Shortly after moving out west he met the mother of his children, Kandice Johnson and together they moved to London, ON and raised their two beautiful children. Chuck spent his summers with his brothers, friends and family at their family’s Cottage in Muskoka with waterskiing in Mud Bay. Chuck prided himself on being the only brother that could barefoot. It was here where his love for the outdoors started and why moving west to Cochrane was a perfect fit for him and his family. Chuck loved the wildlife and mountains, especially taking his family skiing. He was a huge part of his children’s lives very proud of them and always involved with their various team and activities.
Chuck is survived by his children, Benjamin Lawrence of Cochrane, AB and Maggie Lawrence of Cochrane, AB; his brothers, Rod and his wife Denise Lawrence of Pickering, ON, Brooke and his wife Linda Lawrence of Moose Jaw, SK and Todd Lawrence and Marilyn Bird of Waterloo, ON; his nieces, Gillian and her husband Troy Frankland of Pickering, ON, Laura Lawrence of Moose Jaw, SK, Alyssa Lawrence of Pickering, ON, Sabrina Lawrence of Moose Jaw, SK, Tara and her husband Paul Ballantyne of Waterloo, ON and Leanne (Nick) Bird of Waterloo, ON; and his Aunt Pink of Barrie, ON.
