Of Guelph, passed away peacefully at the Guelph General Hospital on Sunday, February 10, 2019, in his 95th year.
Beloved husband of the late Joyce Elizabeth Head (nee Roszel, 2006).
Loved father of Pauline Head (Rick Petersen) and Barbara Greatorex (Ian). Loving grandfather of Craig Beaton, Christine Greatorex and Nicholas Head-Petersen. Also survived by brother-in-law Doug Roszel of Niagara Falls. Beloved companion to his cat Mary.
Chuck was a gentle and kind man, devoted to Joyce and their family. He loved nature – pets, wildlife and gardening – and, ahead of his time, was deeply concerned about the environment. Their care for people in need led Chuck and Joyce to help with the Chalmers Community Centre Food Pantry and with pastoral care to the Dublin Street United Church community.

Funeral service will be held at Dublin Street United Church, 68 Suffolk St. W., Guelph on Friday, February 15, 2019 at 2:00 pm, with the Rev. Emmy Beauchamp officiating. Reception to follow in the church hall.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to Chalmers Community Services Food Pantry would be appreciated.
