In Memory of Alex Charles

Posted on: September 15, 2021

It is with great sadness that we report the sudden passing of Alex Charles which occurred during a family vacation on Salt Spring Island, August 12th. Alex was a member of Tri-City Youth Basketball’s officiating crew who contributed his time to youth sport so other young people could enjoy the experience of the game.

We send our heartfelt condolences to Alex's family: his mother Lara, Alex’s brother Ryan, his grandmother Marylke, their extended family and friends, and all who are touched by Alex’s passing. He will be dearly missed.

Due to the sensitive nature of this situation, the family invites you to share the news of Alex’s passing by phone or email (rather than through social media).

A Celebration of Life for Alex was held on Sunday, August 29. A recording of the service can be viewed at:

Messages of condolence for the family may be offered on the KORU obituaries‘ page

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations could be sent to any of the following:

Children’s Hospital, GF Strong, SPCA, Critter Care Wildlife, Wildlife Rescue
