The Gift of Life in the dying to those who may have the opportunity to live on in a healthy way – how special, how inspiring, how loving.
Charles A. (Chuck) Godkin was a special man. Chuck was born in London, Ontario on October 28, 1941 to his parents Brenton and Alma Godkin.
Chuck had a successful career spanning service with the Toronto-Dominion Bank, The Ministry of Revenue, and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs. For those who knew Chuck well, while admiring his expertise, will remember him most as a friend. They knew he drew his strength from the knowledge that he was beloved by his wife Diane and his daughters Becky and Julie to whom he gave devotion in return.
Chuck had a curiously shy smile, a great sense of humour and a genuine pleasant rapport with all those who knew him. He enjoyed his recreational time through the time spent at his family’s cottage on Kawagama Lake – water sports, curling, board and card games, woodworking and being with Diane, their daughters, family and friends.
Suddenly, as a result of a brain aneurysm, Chuck was declared brain dead in 1989. Subsequently, many transplants were made possible through Chuck’s organ donations. A special man now truly missed.
