It is with great sadness and much love that we announce the passing of Charlie McLaughlin, of Sturgeon County. Charlie passed on February 7, 2023 at the age of 99 years. He will be lovingly remembered by his long-time partner Helen; children Ken (Beth), and Shawna (Carlo); sister Mary Burton; as well as many other family members and friends. He was predeceased by his mother Eleanor and father Alexander; sister Margaret Middleton; and brother-in-laws Len Burton and Armer Middleton.
Charlie lived and farmed five miles east of Morinville. Later in his life Charlie found his true calling of auctioneering. He owned and operated the Morinville Auction Mart, beginning in the 1960’s. Charlie was known for his humour, generosity and compassion towards everyone.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1pm on March 4, 2023, at Morinville Community Cultural Centre, 9502 100 Avenue, Morinville, AB T8R 1P6.
The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff at the Edmonton General Continuing Care Centre for the care and comfort they provided Charlie in the last year of his life.
Condolences to all of Charlie’s family. My folks always spoke kindly of Charlie and you can tell he lived a humble and kind life.
Cliff and I send our condolences to Ken and Beth and to Shawna and Carlo and his wife Helen. So sad for your loss. Dads are so special. Charlie was a special man who loved and respected people in general and idolized his children. His sense of humor will be a memory for many forever. Rest easy Charlie until we see you again.
Ken please except our most sincere condolences at this time of your loss.
We are thinking of you all
Elsie Larry Lana and Lane
Love you forever dad. <3
