Charles Murdock Faulkner, a WWII Veteran, passed away peacefully at age 89 on January 2, 2013, with his daughter Sharon and niece Debbie at his side at Albright Manor.
Charles served honorably with valor as a paratrooper in the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion during WWII while stationed in North West Europe. The battalion, composed of the elite of Canadian soldiers, neither failed to complete a single mission nor gave up an objective once taken. A true patriot, Charles bravely served his country with pride and courage. During a brief stint in Niagara-on-the-Lake he met his beloved Vera. He was immediately employed with Ferranti-Packard and perfected his trade as a tool and die maker. Charles had a passion for motorcycles and always enjoyed touring on his BMW. Most of all he cherished his time with family. He was most grateful for having survived the war, that he may fulfill his ultimate dream of raising a family- something he viewed as God's most precious gift. Our beloved Charles, we wish for you fair winds and soft landings.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years Vera Faulkner (nee Kasper), cherished father to Sharon, devoted Grandfather to Briar Geraci and her husband Jeff , and loving Great Grandfather to Merrick and Calia. He is the son of the late William and Veronica Faulkner (nee Tucker) from Nova Scotia. He will be greatly missed by his brothers Bernard and Daryl and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his brothers Edward and Frank and his sister Loreen. He’ll be remembered by friends and family for his witty sense of humor, unmatched kindness and glorious smile.
