Charles Maines JEFFS – A WWII Veteran, Lieutenant in the Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Highlanders, passed away peacefully on March 28th, 2016 at St-Mary’s of the Lake in Kingston, Ontario at the age of 95.

All who knew him would agree that he lived a full life and we are so blessed to have known such a great man.

He cherished his beautiful wife of 72 years, Olive Jeffs (Brook) and their marriage was one to be admired. He was the most kind, patient and generous father to his children and their spouses Judith Haswell, Robert (Marilyn) Jeffs, Carol (Keith) Blake and Elizabeth (Stephen) Brinkworth. His values and legacies have been shared with his 9 grandchildren: Jette, Adrienne (Mathieu), Chris (Heather), Kelli, Elissa (Sean), Ian (Angela), Erin (Trevor), Eric and Heather (Marc) and 8 great-grandchildren Nicolas, Flora, Bentley, Olivia, Cameron, Teagan, Lily and Megan. He will also be missed by long-time family friends Geraldine and Mary.

While his loss is felt deeply, we celebrate his life and the impact he had on all those he encountered. In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to Providence Care St-Mary’s of the Lake, St-Thomas Anglican Church or the charity of your choice. In Charlie’s memory a funeral service will be given by the Venerable Bill Clarke and held at St-Thomas Anglican Church on Saturday April 2nd, 2016 at 2 pm (130 Lakeview Ave, Kingston, Ont., K7M 3T5). A private family burial will be held at a later date.
