Coombs, Charles Wayne, age 66, of Waterloo, Lunenburg County.

In his younger days he spent many hours rabbit hunting with his father and brothers. During his retirement he enjoyed the outdoors taking long walks, kayaking, fishing and socializing with friends and family at his brother’s cottage. Charles and Richard loved cribbage and often spent time at the Liverpool Legion.
He is survived by his mother, Vera, of Bridgewater; sisters, Joyce (Glen) Brodie, of Moncton, Erna (Jim) Corbeil, of Hunts Point; sister in law, Ruby, of Waterloo; as well as many nieces and nephews.

It has taken some time to write this as it is so soon after Dad’s passing. Uncle Charles will always hold a special place in our hearts. We loved visiting and reminicing with him. We were all so surprised that he had passed. He like Dad always had the presence of being invincible, never putting the spotlight on himself, just looking out for the best interest of others. We will miss him dearly. May you rest in peace Uncle Charles knowing that your family here in Edmonton, Alberta loves you very much and will be celebrating your life with you in thought and prayer on the day when you are put to rest. Hugs and kisses….xoxo
Chris and Patty Evans
