Charlie (Morris Thomas) Kerfoot (July 18, 1935 – October 22, 2014) passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family after a brief illness. He was predeceased by his parents, siblings, and also his loving wife of 55 years, Marilyn, in May of 2012. After Mom’s passing, dad came into his own. He was often seen zooming up the Slocan Valley, Castlegar, Nelson, and even Grand Forks in his van, visiting his many family members and friends. Dad never complained! He was a hard worker and a very capable man. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t do. He showed his love to us all by doing things for us. We all have stories of Dad working on our homes, fixing our cars, cutting our fire wood, even babysitting our dogs. One of Dad’s enjoyments in life was playing crib. During his last game with his daughter Deb he scored a 23 hand. He decided that would be a good hand to end on. We love you dad and we are going to miss you deeply. Until we meet again Pops!
