Charles-A respected citizen of Barrie
Posted by Jack & Maria Graves (Friend, Probus, Client) On Wednesday, April 4, 2012
Charles (Charlie as we knew him) was a long- time member of our Barrie Probus Club (retired Professionals and Business leaders). He was a solid supporter of the Club and rarely missed our monthly meetings. Charlie and his wife, Ann, attended many of our group events...even when both were in declining health. He was a man of integrity, persistent in detail as a legal counsel, and a loving husband. We will honour him by eulogy at our next meeting.

Charlie Wilson usually had a half-smile and some happy crinkles around his eyes. He loved politics and history and was always pleased to talk about such topics in an informed manner. He was an active Liberal and church-goer. When he walked into a room, I usually involuntarily began to smile in anticipation of some gem from Charlie. He will be missed.
