In Memory of



Obituary for Chas Hale

Born November 14, 1936, St. Helens, Lancashire,UK

Died November 4, 2022, North Vancouver, BC

In loving Memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, Chas Hale, who slipped away peacefully surrounded by his cherished family.

Forever loved and fondly remembered by his wife Ann; his beloved children, son Steven (Norine), daughter Catherine, daughter Samantha; treasured grandchildren Kevin, Nicole, Megan, Hannah and Neala; brother Bill (Eva) in the UK; and extended family of in-laws, nieces and nephews, also very much a part of his life.

A soft-spoken man of few words, Chas truly enjoyed time spent with family and friends, whether around the dining table, a roaring campfire, a good session of pickleball, or a pint and a game of darts.

His lasting gift to us was his endless devotion, kindness, and eagerness to share a joke or a laugh which would inevitably bring a twinkle of joy to his eye. Sometimes called GrandTeaser, he never forgot the grandchildren’s favourite donut and could usually be counted on for a bit of chocolate. He is missed beyond words.

There will be no service; the family will gather at a favourite venue at a time to be determined.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Alzheimer Society of BC, any charity of choice, or please be an advocate for someone in need. Condolences may be offered at www.mckenziefuneral

The family would like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff at Berkley Care Centre for their exceptional care, kindness and respect shown to Chas and family during his years of residence.
