December 24, 1933 – April 20, 2011

 

We are sad to announce the passing of Charles L. Lindsay who passed on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at the age of 77 years.

Charlie was born December 24, 1933 in Winnipeg, MB, to Frank and Wynne Lindsay.  He spent time between Sidney, BC, Calgary, and Mexico during his “semi” retirement years from the wholesale lumber business at McIveen Lumber.

Charlie is survived by his daughter Sue of Bragg Creek, son Jeffrey of Calgary, granddaughter Georgia, his two brothers Robert and Donald, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews and his wife Betty of Vancouver.

He was predeceased by his two brothers Russell and Frank and his sister Carol.

Charlie will be sorely missed by all who had the good fortune to know him and have business dealings with him, whether it was lumber, antiques, thoroughbred racing, over the years.  Many thanks to Missy-Jo and all the wonderful care givers at Home Instead who gave such comfort to Charlie and his family in his final days.

Charlie Lindsay’s Celebration of Life Memorial will be held at The Southern Alberta Pioneer Memorial Hall (3625 – 4 Street S.W., Calgary) on Friday, May 13, 2011 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Come and spend the afternoon among all the people Charlie loved.

    I was very sad to read of the passing of Charley. I remember him from our days in Kinsmen and more recently was fortunate enough to cross paths not long ago. I will always remember Charley for his easy smile and down to earth attitude. My sincere condolences to his family. We were all lucky to have had him in our lives.

    Please accept my condolences on the passing of Charlie. I was connected by way of the lumber business and occasionally as his guest at Willow Park Golf Course. Charlie was an astute businessman and a fine fellow. I allways welcomed his words of advice, and encouragement as well as his companionship.

    I was so very sorry to hear about Charlie’s passing. We met through the lumber industry many, many years ago. He had such a positive outlook on life, always a story to tell and a smile on his face. I will miss him very much.

    On behalf of my mother, Helen Tapping, and ourselves, we want to extend our most sincere sympathies to Carell-Ayne and all of Charlie’s family at this sad time. We were blessed to become friends with the Lindsay siblings when my Mom marrried their Uncle Alf. Of all the many memories we will keep in our hearts of Charlie, the most vivid was the day he brought Alf’s namesake Racehorse “Uncle Alfie” to the front door to meet Alf.

    You are all in our prayers.

  14. Ross and Todd Allison and Eleanor Allison-James :

    You have lost a wonderful, wonderful man-so very sad!! Our memories of Charlie go back about 45 years – through Kinsmen and more particularly through Free Style Skiing. He was instrumental and great early mentor to our son Todd in his early days in the sport. Through this start he advanced from a participant to coaching and administration with the Canadian Free Style Team and is now an executive on the U.S. Olympic Committee. Without Charlies’ encouragement to Todd, Eleanor and myself – who knows? Bless Him – with great memories of Charlie and Betty we shall all remember him so well.

  15. Sue, Georgia and Jeff, please accept my condolences on the loss of your father and grandfather. Charlie was my friend for over 30 years, a client who’s word was his bond, an honourable and decent man, generous and sharing. He was a mentor to many, a confidante, calm in a crisis. There was none better. More than a stand up guy, he was also a colourful character who led a life much larger than most.

    Diana and I are away and not able to attend the memorial. Our thoughts are with you.
