Condolence from Al Wakelin sent on August 19, 2019

My 90 year old father-in-law noticed Charles obituary in the August 19th Toronto Star and he brought it to my attention. Of course, you have our sincere condolences; when the patriarch of a family passes it is a sorrowful milestone and I hope your father/grandfather lived a full and eventful life. But you can guess what my curiosity is… because of my last name. I saw your father’s photo and I can see my grandfather Alfred Wakelin who passed in the early 80’s at the age of 88! He was born, raised and died Tamworth, Staffordshire area of England; he came from a large family because his father was married twice. His father was William Wakelin. I met my Dad’s Uncle Arthur Wakelin when I was 9 years old on a visit to the Midlands. So yes I am curious to know when your father/grandfather’s parents came to Canada and where they came from!? My father Albert came to Stratford, Ontario in 1949 and he passed in 1972; he was a Mechanical Contractor and he owned his own business. HIs sister Hilda Riley of Kingston, Ontario passed in February this year a few months shy of her 101st birthday! I am a retired Mountie and my wife and I run a B&B called Cottage On Caledonia in Stratford, Ontario. I would love the opportunity to meet, but I’m not so sure the Memorial Service in New Hamburg on Saturday would be appropriate. Our number is 519-305-0384 and my email is wakelinal@gmail.com. Once again, our sincere condolences – God Bless all!
