ILLSLEY, Charles "Chuck"


It is with breaking hearts that we advise of the unexpected passing of Chuck on July 16, 2021 at the age of 72. Chuck was the son of the late Charles L. Illsley and Sara E. Illsley (Lewis). Chuck was larger than life itself. His passions were his family, building, and motorcycle­s. Chuck always said “if it was made by man, he could make it or fix it”. He was always reading about and searching the internet for new products and better ways of doing things. Loved getting new constructi­on tools and electrical gadgets. Chuck could build anything and fix anything. Chuck received many accolades through his 48 years as a General Contractor. He was always happy to advise, assist and share his vast knowledge on everything. He especially was so very proud to pass on his knowledge to his daughter Robyn who has followed him into the building world. Chuck is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of 49 years, Lynne (Hooper); his beloved daughter, Robyn Illsley (Rick Mackay); his sis

ter, Sharon Hibbits (Vaughn Hibbits); his nephew, Brian Hibbits, and Brian's sons, Dean and Drew; his niece, Cathy Hibbits. Also surviving are all the Simpson, Wilson and Davis cousins who were

a large part of his life. A Celebratio­n of Life will be held

near the end of September. Donations in Chuck’s memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or a charity of your choice. Online condolence­s may be sent by visiting: www.coleharbou­
