With deep sadness we announce the passing of Charles Wilfred (Fred) Pickles, beloved husband of the late Sandra Wyllie Pickles. A dad, uncle, grandpa and best friend, who passed away courageously on January 26, 2022 at the age of 72 years.
Fred loved his family so dearly and nothing gave him more pride than his three grandkids. He was a true gentleman, respected everyone equally and would give to anyone in need.
He will forever be remembered for his genuine character, his Mr fix-it abilities, his quirky sense of humour, his love of vintage cars and his passion for trains.
Charles will be lovingly remembered by his son Gordon (Taunya), his daughter Laurel (Steve), grandkids Jenna, Ethan and Kayden as well as Jenna and Ethan’s mom Tammy (Martin) as well as extended family.
He was pre-deceased by the love of his life Sandy Pickles, his parents Eveline and James Pickles and his brother James (Reg) Pickles.
Our family wishes to extend enormous gratitude to St. Mikes Palliative Care Unit, as well as Chinook Regional Hospital Day Procedure Unit staff (His Girls). We would also like to thank the many physicians including Dr. J. Geers, Dr. B. Weston, Dr. D. Walsh and the extended health care staff who were a part of dads comfort care.
A private family celebration of life will be held at a later date. Flowers are gratefully declined, however if you so wish, a donation can be made in his honour to the charity of your choice.
