It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the peaceful passing of Charles (Carl) Chwalek on February 17, 2024, in his 90th year. Carl leaves behind Colleen, his wife of 53 years. Loving father of Mike (Joanne) and grandfather to Easton. Chosen grandfather to Quinn Harvie (Anna & Andrew). Dear brother to Valeria Thorpe (Gordon), Jennie Coville (Duane), John Chwalek (Kathy). Predeceased by his father, Joseph and mother Michalina. Remembered fondly by his many nieces, nephews, and extended family.

Carl will be remembered as a kind and generous man, with a quick sense of humour and a gentle soul. Anybody that needed help, Carl was there for them. Carl’s son, Mike was his pride and joy. There are many memories of them fishing, golfing, and camping together. Carl was also a skilled artisan creating many stained-glass pieces that live now in the homes of his friends and family.
