It was with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather, brother, and friend Charles Joseph Williams. Charlie passed away at the New Waterford Consolidated hospital surrounded by loved ones. Charlie was born in Scotchtown, Nova Scotia.

He was a devoted Catholic who attended mass every Sunday. Charlie loved life and touched the hearts of everyone who met him. He loved fishing, hunting, camping, collecting golf balls while walking the golf course in Ingonish, and meeting new people. His passion was dancing and could jive with 3 women at a time. Charlie was a coal miner in his early years, he worked construction, and later drove delivery trucks. Charlie was a member of the Pensioners Club of New Waterford and a volunteer with the Coal Bowl Classic's Hospitality suite.
