Charles Corby of Calgary, AB, passed away on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at the age of 89 years.

Charlie was born in Toronto, ON and relocated to live in Edmonton, AB, where he and his wife Valerie retired to help raise their two granddaughters. This gave Charlie great pride and joy. In 2017, he relocated to Calgary to live closer to his granddaughter Nicole. The majority of Charlie’s career was with the Army (Strathcona Horses) and Air Force. He transferred to be a commissioner with the RCMP in 1973 and retired in 1986.

Charles is survived by his two granddaughters, Mrs. Nicole (Scott) Smith and Dr. Amber (Steve) Paul; and great-grandson Kylo. He was the best grandpa anyone could have asked for and will be dearly missed. We left-hand salute you grandpa, arrivederci.

Charlie was predeceased by his daughter Valerie Paul and wife Valerie Corby.
