Robert Burns CHARTERS

With great sadness the family of Robert (Bob) Charters announce his peaceful passing on July 26th, 2014 in his 92nd year. Son of the late Clarence Victor Charters and Ida Mary Harcourt of Brampton. Cherished husband and best friend of Kathleen (Katie) nee McKillop (2011) for 64 years. Devoted father of Thom (Cindi) and Lorie Crouch (Monte), adoring Poppa to Clayton (Jennie) and Kyle (Carly) Charters, Spencer, Meghan and Hilary Crouch and David Wardle. Pops to his cherished great grandchildren, Wyatt, Hadley and Ava Charters. Predeceased by brother Col. Sam Charters (Trudy), survived by sister Marion Carroll (Fenton) and many adoring nieces and nephews. A true gentlemen in every sense of the word, honest, compassionate, philanthropic and hard working would best describe Dad. He had an extraordinary life, considering himself to be extremely fortunate and lucky but these words best describe those of us who knew him. After distinguished service in WWII as a navigator with the RAF, Dad worked as a flagman with Armstrong Brothers Construction rising through the ranks to President and Chairman of the Board of Armbro Holdings, serving at different times as a Director of both the Ontario Roadbuilders and the Canadian Construction Associations. He proudly served as a Director of the RAF Escaping Society (Canadian Branch) and cherished the time spent with fellow evaders and escapees. An avid golfer and sports enthusiast he was Past President of the OGA (now GAO), former Director of the Toronto Golf Club and a former Governor of the RCGA.
