Passing of UA Member Charles Steele

July 6, 2018

STEELE, Charles Joseph Alexander of New Brunswick, formerly of Port Hawkesbury.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Charlie Steele, Age 54, who passed away suddenly at home in New Brunswick on Sunday, July 1, 2018.  Born in Glace Bay he was a son of Joseph and Alexis (MacDonald) Steele, Port Hawkesbury. He is survived by his wife, Darlene (Kyle), New Brunswick; brothers, Paul, Saskatchewan and Vince (Amanda), Sugarcamp; son, Tyler, Dominion; step-children, Hayley and Jason, New Brunswick; grandchildren, Victoria, Campbell and Caden; daughter, Sonya; many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother, John Bernard.

Charlie was a free spirit who enjoyed the outdoors; sitting by the fire, fishing or trailing with his friends.  He had a great sense of humor and always had a smile or a friendly word for the people he met.  He was happiest when spending time with his two best friends, his son, Tyler and granddaughter, Victoria.  Charlie was multitalented and master to anything that involved working with his hands and worked as a painter and body man until he joined Local 682, Sydney and later Local 179, Saskatchewan where he worked as a Welder out West.  He will be greatly missed by those who knew him.

Cremation has taken place.  Funeral mass will be held at 10 a.m.  on Tuesday, July 10 in St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, 138 Granville Street, Port Hawkesbury with Father Conrad Edwards officiating. Donations in memory of Charles may be made to a charity of your choice. Funeral arrangements are under the care of Dennis Haverstock Funeral Home, Port Hawkesbury. Words of comfort may be forwarded to the family at:
