Karl Leonard (Charlie) Nelson

October 18, 1931 - May 3, 2014


Born October 18, 1931 in Powell River.

Survived by his wife Betty, sons Gary and Doug, daughter Brenda, sisters Anna and Magda. Pre-deceased by brother Knut.

A true local boy. Charlie spent his entire life in Powell River. He had a 47 year career at the Powell River paper mill, retiring as paper machine supervisor. A life long golfer Charlie was a member of both the original Townsite and the Myrtle Point Golf Courses. On Saturday May 3, 2014 the big golf course in the sky quietly called Charlie for his final tee time. Dad may your drives be long and your putts be straight.

Charlie didn't want a service, but friends and former co-workers are asked to  play 18 or hoist a beer in his honor

I was lucky enough to be able to call Charlie a good friend. We worked together in the mill for thirty years.
I’ll always remember our greeting when we saw each other. “Hi Charlie, How you was? and Charlie’s reply was always “Not to worse.”
Thanks to a good friend for so many good memories. Rest in Peace.
