September 15, 2023, Corporal Jeffrey Dwight Charette (Ret), 74, passed away peacefully, surrounded in love with his family at his side.
Jeff will be missed by his loving partner Sandy Jones, his children Sonny Charette and Carrie Roxburgh (Jamie), and his grandchildren Jack and Olivia Charette, Max, Liam, and Kaeleigh Roxburgh. He will be forever remembered by his siblings Bob Charette (Karen), Karen-Lee Andrew (Mark), Michele Rutledge (Ken), Kathy Charette and Ross Charette. As well as the Jones Family, Alan (Bonnie), Debbie (Bob), and Kirk (Joanne). Jeff was a kind and loving uncle to many nieces and nephews on all sides of the family. Jeff was predeceased by his parents, George and Dolores (Grimes) Charette, his brothers, Jay and Kerry Charette, and the mother of his children, Cheryl Chad.
Jeff was a kind and loving uncle to Chelsea Latvala (Jeff), Maris Weir, Laura Andrew (Daniel), Dana Andrew (Randi), Dustin Andrew (Tiffany), Mary Jones (Gregory), Anna Skoberg (Shawn), Tess Bell (Nathan), Mia Rutledge, Jake Rutledge (Heather), Terry Charette (Tanya), Tracey Charette (Max), Brian Jones, Christopher Jones, Michael Sladden (Courtney) and Kim Sladden (Ryan). Jeff will be remembered fondly by all his grand-nieces, grand-nephews and extended Charette, Grimes, Jones, and Chad family.
Jeff was dedicated to a life of service. He fulfilled his life dream of becoming a Mountie in 1978 and served his country through service in the RCMP until his retirement in 2005. He was particularly proud of his service with Canada’s first permanent counter terrorism program the Special Emergency Response Team (SERT), and later with the RCMP’s National Peacekeeping Branch, and through the Canadian Police Arrangement (CPA), serving with multilateral missions overseas in Croatia, Bosnia, Kosovo (2), and Jordan. Jeff was very grateful for all the opportunities that he was given to serve his country. When Jeff was asked what his favorite experience was, he said: “All of it.”
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, Orleans Branch 632, Ontario on Saturday, October 14th, 2023, beginning at 12:00 pm.
