Too dearly loved ever to be forgotten

Brubacher, Charles (Chuck) Leverne passed away peacefully at Mississauga Hospital (part of Trillium Health Partners) on Monday, April 24th, 2017.

Lovingly remembered by Roberta Alene Brubacher (Longfield), his wife of 54 years. Treasured father of Blair Brubacher (Karen Ashforth), and Lisa Brubacher (Jeff Cairns).

Chuck spent his formative years in St. Thomas, working in his parents’ hardware store and attending St. Thomas Elgin Collegiate Institute. During this time, Chuck developed a love for wilderness canoe tripping. His post-secondary studies took him to Western University. By the time he graduated, he had two new passions, Roberta and improving emergency medical care and transportation. As his family grew, so did his passions, first for his children, then his grandchildren. In his retirement, driver training and safety became another passion. Throughout his life, Chuck’s focus on serving others, has touched many lives.
