Curran Charles December 19,1952 - June 4,2018 CURRAN, Charles (Chuck) Passed away suddenly on Monday, June 4, 2018 in his 65th year. Survived by his loving wife Ellen (née Dickson), devoted father of Tyler, my wonderful boy, and Samantha - "my Baby Girl". Much loved brother to Gary (Lanis) and Brian, and brother-in-law to Cathy Dickson, Shelagh Noble (Kerry), and Pat Dickson (Dan Miller). Cherished uncle to Lindsay Curran, Kyle Curran, Heather Silverthorne (Greg and Lily), Alison Noble and Julia Filer (Derek). Chuck also had a wonderful relationship with his mother and father-in-law, Florence and the late Bob Dickson.

Chuck enjoyed his many years of work at Ryder, Alcatel, Canadian Tourism Commission and ICBC. Upon his retirement he loved traveling with Ellen - walking the hills of Italy and France and cycling in Bhutan and Thailand. As well he enjoyed renovating their new house.

Chuck was a large figure in everyone's lives. He had that wonderful combination of humour, energy, intelligence and goodwill. He was the guy who would happily do anything for you and showed his love with a warm hug. The love of his life was Ellen - "My Honey", "My Beautiful Bride" - and they built an extensive network of friends in Ontario and Vancouver. Chuck was a supportive and caring husband, devoted father and loyal friend, known for his warmth, sense of humour, kindness, generosity and hard work. Chuck will be forever missed but his incredible legacy will live on through his loving family and the relationships he had throughout his life.
