Chuck served in the Canadian Armed Forces for 21 years and was ranked as a Master Corporal in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was in sales for the balance of his working years as a sales agent with his wife, Norma Jeanne Lavoie. They travelled for their own Sales Agency for over 40 years.

Chuck was very involved in politics with his wife aIways by his side. They both served on the Board of Directors for a former local politician. They also were both on the Board of Directors for the SENB #60 Branch of the National Association of Federal Retirees. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #6 in Moncton as well as a member of the Dieppe Military Veterans Association. Chuck and his wife were recipients of the Governor General’s "Volunteerism" Award in 2017. He was a life long member of the Air Force Association of Canada.

He is survived by his ever loving wife and soul-mate, Norma Jeanne (nee MacDougall-Denton) Lavoie; sister-in-Iaw, Valerie Todd (Jim Melnyk) of Riverview; daughter-in-law, Mariam Denton (late Sean Noel Denton) of Antigonish, N.S.; nephew, Todd Somerville (Candace) and great-niece, Sadie Vivian of Dartmouth, N.S.; and many loving nieces and nephews; and so many very good friends and relatives far and wide; wonderful neighbours and especially the Birthday Club members.
