1944 - 2017
It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Charles Kalnin on July 13, 2017. He was upheld and surrounded by family and friends.
Chuck was predeceased by his wife Elaine, daughter Kelly and brother Phil.
He will be greatly missed by his son Neal (wife Lara), grandchildren Bailey, Stephan, Megan, Calla, and Nathan, brothers Lanny and Jim and all those touched by his life.
Chuck was born June 7, 1944 in Pine Falls, Manitoba and moved west across the country. Chuck graduated from BCIT and while there met Elaine. They married in 1967, moving to Penticton, then to Kamloops in 1972.
Chuck was always questioning life no matter the degree of reasoning. Always bettering himself through extensive reading on any subject, but primarily about his faith, nature and cooking.
A memorial service, celebrating Chuck’s life, will be held Saturday July 22, 2017 at 10:30 am, at St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral, 300 Nicola Street, Kamloops, British Columbia. Officiating by The Right Rev’d. Barbara Andrews and Rev’d Dan Hines.
If friends so desire, donations in Chuck’s memory may be made to Interior Community Services-Community Gardens http://www.interiorcommunityservices.bc.ca/ or a charity of their choice.
