Cherished grandfather of Elizabeth, Sarah, William and Stephen Worthen-Perrett, and Katie, Peter and Krissy Van Alstine. Charles was predeceased by his brother Bob and his first wife Mary (Ward). He will be fondly remembered by his sister-in-law Madge Worthen, his niece Louise (Dave) Nemeth, his great niece Amber (Ryan) Baumbach and great-nephew Kyle (Karen) and his great-great niece Madeleine. Charles' extended family always included Lois' side of the family, of which would be her sister Jean (Gary) Ivens, and her brothers Don (Susan) Munro, and Ewen (Patricia) Munro and their children, Kelly (Greg) Connell, Reid Ivens, James (Jeanine) Munro, the late Janna Bovin, and Fay and Fiona Munro. During Charles' life he and Lois developed many special friendships with Patti and Greg Fleming, Perry and Clare Safford, along with their dog "Willie", Elna Pfeiffer and Jim Baxter, and Catherine Smith.

During his working career, he also was an avid golfer in his leisure time, making many holes-in-one and being the Club Champion at the Brockville Golf and Country Club and the Royal Ottawa Golf and Country Club. He and his devoted wife Lois and their precious cat "Sam" enjoyed many wonderful times at their home on the Rideau as well as their home in Florida during the winter months.
