He will lovingly be remembered by his children Patrick and Michael Cooney; grandchildren Amanda and Meaghan Cooney; as well as the many relatives and friends in his life. He will also be dearly missed by both staff and residents at the Jasper Place Continuing Care Center.
He was predeceased by his loving wife of 38 years, Margaret Cooney; and his parents Joseph and Edna Cooney.

At this time he had joined the Royal Canadian Air Force as a photographer, later becoming a paramedic with the RCAF ParaRescue Squadron. His service took Charles across Canada, until he and his family settled in Edmonton, Alberta.
