So sorry to hear this news. I first met Chuck about 1995 as the Province was deciding on the RAI. I remember he loved driving an amazing car.
Loved his laugh and love of life. My condolences.

Please accept my condolences for your loss. I worked with Chuck for many years in my role at the Canadian Institute for Health Information and he was always a great friend and supporter of the Canadian health care system.
We always looked forward to our meetings with Chuck as he was wonderful as a chairman, a committee member and as a person. We will miss him greatly.

Our heart-felt sympathies to everyone in Chuck’s world. As my treasured friend of 50 years, I first encountered Chuck in 1st year university. The undergraduate and graduate adventures we shared were filled with his laughter, support, and accomplishment – all reinforced by Chuck’s positive, sage and humorous temperament. Chuck was best man at our wedding and Monica and I are feeling a deep vacuum with many fond memories to partially ease the pain. Chuck leaves his eclectic circle of friends, thankful for his kinship, with smiles on their faces and warmth in their hearts, their lives being all the richer for having known him.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Chuck has been an amazing colleague and friend. I knew him from JPPC; I was part of the JPPC staff. I kept in touch with a phone call or an email every now and again, and it was always so uplifting to talk to him. We would compare notes on work situations, on Russia (which seemed to be the hardest place to get a visa for you, and the furthest place on my list to visit), cats, dogs and so many other topics. You may remember, I visited you at your home once when I was in London on a work trip. I had such a wonderful time, I will never forget this.
I was planning a JPPC get together a couple of months ago and contacted Chuck to see if he would come up. I was devastated to find out about his health, and was planning on visiting him in London, but unfortunately, we never got to confirming the date.
Please accept my deepest condolences. I will truly miss him. If you are ever in Toronto and there is anything you need, please do not hesitate to contact me. Julia
