Charles B. Dowling
It is with our deepest sympathy that we announce the passing of one of our former presidents; Charles led Dowling Insurance Brokers for over 30 years until his retirement in 2009.
Winnipeg Free Press, Passages: CHARLES BRUCE DOWLING With sadness, we announce the passing of Charles Dowling. He passed away peacefully at Clearwater Bay in Lake of The Woods on October 19, 2013 at the age of 62 years, with his family by his side. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Rose, brother Garry (Wendy) from London, ON, sister Melody (Brian) from Winnipeg, MB, nephews Chris (Sharon) and Nathan (Jen), nieces Deanna (Ryan) and Jill, great-nephews Lawson, Braxton, Samson and Jack. He was predeceased by his father Blair Dowling and his mother Mary Olive Dowling. Charlie's masonic career began with the Lord Strathcona Chapter of DeMolay. He was initiated into Sturgeon Creek Lodge No. 145 and recently affiliated with Lake of the Woods Lodge No. 445 in Kenora. Charlie was an active member of Khartum Shrine and served in the Sports Car and Cycle Escort units. During his tenure on the Divan, he served two terms on the Board of Governors of the Shriners Hospital for Children in Montreal. He was elected Potentate of Khartum Shrine in 1999. Charlie leaves behind a legacy of building a strong family business, having spent over 30 years developing what his father had started in 1939. His strong work ethic and excellent leadership were instrumental in the success of Dowling Insurance. In addition, he was a founding partner of the Premier Insurance Group. Another of Charlie's great pleasures was getting on his Harley and going on a road trip. Whether snowmobiling or motorcycling, he enjoyed the journey. Taking the less beaten paths and meeting a vast number of people, many of whom he still kept in touch with. Chas never did do anything easy, if there was a job to do, get it done, and if you started a project, do it to the best of your ability. His greatest joy was spending his summers on Lake of the Woods and his winters on the boat in the Bahamas, and of course his time spent with his great-nephews. Time ran out on an amazing journey. Funeral service will be held at Thomson "In the Park" Funeral Home, 1291 McGillivray Blvd., on Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. The family would like to thank the doctors at Keewatin Medical Centre and staff on the 3rd floor at Kenora Hospital for their care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Charles' memory to the Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation, 21 Sylvan Street West, Kenora, ON P9N 3W7. www.lwohf.com or to the Shriners Hospital for Children, 1529 Cedar Avenue, Montreal, QC H3G 1A6. www.shrinershospitalforchildren.org.
Everyone at Wyatt Dowling Insurance will miss Charlie.
