March 12, 1933 – August 23, 2012
Charles Walter Nolan (Joe) passed away suddenly on Thursday, August 23, 2012 at the age of 79 years.
Joe proudly served the RCMP where his dedicated career took him to detachments throughout Manitoba, Saskatchewan, NWT and the Yukon. With a move back to Alberta he continued his career in security and investigations for the federal government including Agriculture Canada, Canada Post, Bank of Canada and the G8 Summit.
During his service with the RCMP, Joe was passionate and tireless in his volunteer efforts with community events and organizations; hockey was always at the forefront. Joe continued this dedication with the RCMP Veterans’ Association and Fort Calgary, as his interest in preserving and sharing the history of the RCMP was very important to him.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 55 years, Inez; his children Kerry, Pat (Marion), and Jeff; three grandchildren, Riley, Kelleen and Shaun. As well, he is survived by his step-mother Evelyn, sister Sherry (Bruce), and three brothers Jack (Joyce), Pat (Carole), Bob (Maryann). He was pre-deceased by his mother Avis, father Charlie, and brother Ken.
A celebration of Joe’s life will be held at McINNIS @ HOLLOWAY’s Chapel of the Bells, 2720 Centre Street North, Calgary, on Wednesday August 29th at 2:00 pm.
