Funeral service for the late Charles Alexander England, 73, Steep Creek, Guysborough County, was held January 5, in St. James Anglican Church, Middle Melford, with Reverend Susan Slater officiating. Burial was in St. James Cemetery. Mr. England died December 29, 2018 at Saint Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish. Trina and Charles England provided remembrances during the funeral Mass. Kailey and Kelsey England read poetry, while Reverend Slater gave a reflection. Music was provided by Hazel Halfpenny. Born in Steep Creek, he was a son of the late Warren and Vivian (Parks) England. A member of the International Laborers Union, he worked for many years in construction, and worked unloading the paper boats and freezer boats, along with cutting pulp wood. Many along the shore will remember his 1970 440 Road Runner. He was a jack of all trades and often was the first one on site to help out with a project; one of his biggest projects was moving his house from the beach in Sand Point, which was formerly occupied by the lighthouse keeper to his property in Steep Creek, a project that many told him was impossible to do. He is survived by his daughter Trina (Brent McKinnon), Mulgrave; son, Charles (Tina), Sand Point; six grandchildren, Kendra, Kelsey, Kailey, Shaynia, Mikaela, Noah; two sisters, Ruth (Raymond) Morris, Sand Point; Jean Strickland, Lunenburg; five brothers Douglas, Steep Creek; Donald, Melford; Warren (Carol), St. Francis Harbour; Clarkie, St. Francis Harbour; Ronald, Steep Creek; many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his nephew, Phillip Smith; two sisters-in-law, Marlene England, Shirley DeCoste; brother-in-law, Stan Strickland. Memorial donations may be made to St. James Anglican Church.
