– It is with heavy hearts that the Vachon family announces the passing of one of its bright lights, Charles Irvin (Chuck), the youngest of three sons born to Dorothy Sisco and the late Everett on May 31st, 1952. He is sorely missed by his beloved wife and best friend Suzanne (née Dupuis), his loving brothers Derek (Eleonore) and David (Sylvia), his most cherished niece and nephews Karen, Stephan, Marc Vachon and Jordan Dupuis, and by his constant canine companions, Gracie and Chance. Chuck is fondly remembered by many aunts, uncles, and cousins, by his life-long friend, Barry Miltimore, and by many other friends and his colleagues at National Defense. Wickedly funny, curious, and intelligent, he is remembered as a gentle spirit, a lover of music, and an avid reader. The family extends its gratitude to the medical and nursing staff at the Ottawa Hospital Cancer Center, and the palliative support team at Ottawa’s Champlain Community Access Center. In compliance with his wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral service. Cremation has been entrusted to CAPITAL FUNERAL HOME & CEMETERY, Ottawa, Ontario.
