Charles Ernst "Charlie" Delaney – 86, Onslow Mountain, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 9, 2022, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre, Truro. Born in Onslow Mountain, he was a son of the late Roderick and Annie (Smith) Delaney.

While Charlie began his career at the former Lewis Hat Factory, he spent his life working in the forest industry as well as farming Christmas trees and blueberries. Charlie was a quiet man, but still waters run deep. We were inspired, and in awe, with his ability to fix or engineer something we all had assumed was past the point of repair! In recent years, Charlie enjoyed walking the home place or sitting with a cup of tea and donut telling stories from his younger days.

Charlie is survived by his brother, Lorrain, Onslow Mountain; sisters, Joyce Marchbank, Debert; Theresa Glass, Onslow Mountain; nieces, Sherri (Donald) Smith, Debert; Vimy Glass, Onslow Mountain; Annie (Kim) Langille, Tatamagouche; nephews, Arnett Marchbank, Victoria, British Columbia; Thomas Marchbank, Truro; Charles Marchbank, Tatamagouche; many cousins. Along with his parents, he was predeceased by his brothers, Roland and Aubrey; brothers-in-law, Brian Glass and Arnett Marchbank.

Charlie’s wishes for a small, quiet graveside service at Bible Hill Cemetery will be honoured. Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall - Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro.
