It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful death of Charles (Chuck) Beaudry in the early hours of August 11, 2022 after a year-long battle with cancer.
Chuck will be fondly remembered by his 53-year-old wife Carol, daughters Jacqueline (Pat Collins) and Renée (Jeff Peterson), and beloved grandchildren Paige, Brooke, Norah, Gillian and Taite. He will also be missed by his siblings Mariette (Ernest Gervais), Jules, Lorette (Gilles Ferland), John (Denise), Lynda (Hubert Fournier), brother-in-law Paul St. Jean and many nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Joseph and Marie-Paule, brothers Georges, Bob, Putt and Joe, nephews Richard and Denis.
Chuck began his career at Kleysen Transport, specializing in heavy-duty and electromechanical engineering. He then worked for the St. Boniface School Division, first as a school bus mechanic and then as a transportation supervisor. And so began his love affair with big yellow buses! He was later employed by the Province of Manitoba as a student transportation field worker, where he later became a senior field worker overseeing many school bus projects and initiatives. In that career, he traveled throughout Manitoba and got to know the freeways so well that he could give you directions to each city and advise you on which route was your best option. It also afforded him the opportunity to chair various committees and travel throughout North America. “Do what you love and you won’t have to work a day in your life” is a saying that applies to Chuck. With travel on his mind, he spent much of his time in the cottage and his grandchildren kept him busy and retired in 2008.
Chuck’s many interests included home renovations, building the family cottage, travel, golfing, curling, meeting family and longtime friends, and of course, attending his grandchildren’s sporting events. He was also the family expert on all car-related issues, from seasonal tire changes to deciphering unusual noises coming from the vehicle.
Chuck was a kind and gentle man who quietly inspired those around him. He will be remembered for his sense of humor, infectious laugh, helpfulness and the love he had for his family.
A celebration of Chuck’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on September 7, 2022 at the Église Saints-Martyrs-Canadiens Church at 289 Dussault Avenue
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a local charity of your choice.
The family would like to thank the staff at St. Boniface Hospital’s palliative care unit for caring for him with respect and dignity during his stay.
Rest en paix Chuck. On t’aime beaucoup Pépère.
