CHARLES EDWARD SHORT B.Comm., C.A. Passed away peacefully at his home in Fredericton, NB on June 22, 2007. Born in Toronto on August 8, 1934 to Charles Henry Short (Richard Short, Lilly Ashbridge) and Myrtle Jane Andrews (William George Andrews, Cicely Wilkinson). He is survived by his wife Cheryl Anne MacKinnon; his daughter, Carol Jane Bloor (Don) of Calgary, AB; his sons, Edward Andrew George (Sandra) of Ottawa, ON, and Charles Stewart of Calgary, AB; his step-daughter, Ashley Margaret Campbell Morrison of Fredericton, NB; eight grandchildren, Corey, Alex and Chris of Calgary, Jamie, Penny, Erin and Harry of Ottawa and Eska of Calgary; and his much loved little terriers Willie, Meggie and Robbie of Fredericton. Mr. Short attended Riverdale Collegiate and The University of Toronto, graduating in 1957 with a B.Comm. Upon completion of his undergraduate work, Charles joined Touche Ross in 1957 and received his Chartered Accountancy designation in 1960. He was transferred to Saint John, NB in 1961 and to Fredericton to open a Touche Ross office in 1976. Well known in both Saint John and Fredericton over the years, manager for the audits of StressCon, Thorne's, Ocean Steel, NB Power and The University of New Brunswick, to name a few. He accepted a partnership with Brewer Teed in 1983 and subsequently established his own private practice in 1987. Mr. Short retired from private practice in 2005 due to failing health. He was a member of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (Ontario and New Brunswick) and was elected Life Member of the Ontario Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2004. From a very early age, Charles was endowed with a strong work ethic and a principled sense of purpose. He gave freely of himself to his community. During the course of his career and tenure in Saint John, Mr. Short became actively involved with the Simonds Lions Club and was one of the founders of Loch Lomond Villa, a full service, state of the art seniors' complex, encompassing extensive nursing care facilities and two seniors' high rise apartment complexes. In addition, he fulfilled the role of Treasurer of the Board of Directors until moving to Fredericton. Over the years, he was treasurer of Silver Falls United Church, Simonds Lions Club, Fredericton Golf and Curling Club, Fredericton Rotary Club, Fredericton Garrison Club and Science East, a sponsor of Ducks Unlimited and The Boys and Girls Club of Canada and a member of the Fredericton Historical Society. Mr. Short was awarded The Paul Harris Fellow, and honorary Life Membership in the Simonds Lions Club, Fredericton Rotary Club and The Miramichi Salmon Association. Charles was rarely to be seen without a book, magazine or newspaper. The scope of his general knowledge, detailed retention of history and geography, and astute mathematical ability was remarkable. His family remembers him as a kind, gentle and loving person, always ready with a warm smile. Very proud of his family (including his puppers) and having an abundance of knowledge, intelligence and goodwill. For all of these tremendous qualities he will be always remembered and truly missed. A memorial service will be held at St. Paul's United Church, Fredericton, NB, on Thursday, July 26th, 2007 at 2:00 pm with The Rev. Reg Miller officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes made to the Organ Fund of St. Paul's United Church would be appreciated by the family. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Andrew Perry of McAdam's Select Community Funeral Home, 160 York Street, Fredericton, NB. (506) 458-9170. July 21, 2007
