KOBELT, Charles Alexander

1925 - 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear dad, Charles (Chuck / Charlie) Kobelt on January 29, 2021, attended by his family at the Grace Village. He joins his cherished wife, Alice, who passed away 11 years ago and has been waiting for him to continue their journey together.

Charles was predeceased by his parents, Charles and Florence, his sister Dolly, and his brothers Harry and James.

Cherished father of Keith (Claudette), Donald (Ann), Mary (Mitchell), Jo-Anne (Louis) and Charles (Kelley); beloved grandfather of Christopher, Heather, Alexander, Lillian and Frankie; great-grandchildren Ophelia, Finnegan and James. He will also be missed by many relatives and friends. He leaves to mourn Maureen Bean whom he married in his later years.


Charles lived a life of service to others. He served in the Royal Canadian Navy aboard the Prince David during World War II. He was a 76-year member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 68 of St. Lambert. We recall chilly November Sundays watching Dad march proudly in the Remembrance Day parades.

Charles was a former President of the Lennoxville-Ascot Historical and Museum Society, active in the Optimist Club and Friendship Days. Leading by example he demonstrated the importance of community service to his children. It is telling that he was a member of the Optimist Club as he was the eternal optimist—always walking on the sunny side of the street.

Dad loved to sing in church choirs, with the St. Lambert Barbershop Chorus and in numerous musicals where his booming voice and sense of humour served him well. His love of music was passed on to his children and grand-children and he frequently boasted of their accomplishments.

He was a man of many interests including golf and curling. His passion for gardening was passed onto his children. In his later years, he especially enjoyed tending to the Amesbury garden and planting marigolds in his children’s gardens despite their annual protest.

We fondly remember his talent for leading a pack of unruly children in crack-the-whip at Bishop’s arena, showing off his skill at stand-up tobogganing, letting us win or cleaning our clocks in Monopoly, Happy Hour Scrabble with Mom and his infamous skateboard run down High Street (as a senior citizen).

On Saturday afternoons Dad could be found cheering for his Bishop’s Gaiters both home and away. He had a special talent for taunting opposing coaches and referees. He was the proud recipient of the prestigious Ray Almond Award, given to a dedicated member of the Bishop’s Athletic community who rises above expectations. Who else but Dad could be known as “Poppa” to so many athletes and alumni?

The Kobelt family would like to thank all the staff at the Grace Village for their dedicated and loving care for Charles over the past 12 years. You are all true heroes and angels. To honour the excellent care and compassion provided to our dad, a donation to the Grace Village Foundation would be greatly appreciated in lieu of flowers. http://www.gracevillage.ca/donations

Due to the circumstances surrounding the pandemic, a celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

Condolences to the family of this old family friend and fine gentleman. I have many fond memories of Chuck and Alice who were friends of my parents and I would sit wide-eyed at parties enjoying his humour and his wonderful singing voice. On the bright side, I guess he will finally know if you can get to heaven on roller skates! Grieve well and enjoy the memories!

The Family and loved ones

My sympathies on the passing of a true gentleman that I got to meet and know while he and my Dad (Ray Martin) were at the Connaught home. His positive attitude helped everyone. I have thought of him in the years since I've seen him and am glad that I got to know him even as little as I did. He and Maureen Bean sure cheered Dad up many times.

To the Kobelt family

Charles was know for his service to Lennoxville by his kindness and grace he gave to everyone he met.
I had a part-time job taping the various teams at Bishop's and Chaplain.
No doubt his voice was captured many during those games.
I will add his name to this year's All Soul's Day service.
