Rosart, Charles J.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Charles (Chuck) Joseph Paul Rosart on October 7th, 2020. Charles was predeceased by spouses Marianne Lubotta and Ruth Ann (Wendy) Welsh. He is survived by sisters Marvel Bogart and Diane Pamenter. Beloved father of Sharyn, Sheila, Suzanne, and Sarah Rosart; father-in-law of Nathaniel Marunas, Peter Brodnitz, and Robert Martin; grandfather of Dashiell and Dexter Rosart-Marunas, Jeremy, Jesse, and Samantha Rosart-Brodnitz; and Rachel and Ava Rosart-Martin. Charles was born on June 1, 1934 in Hamilton, Ontario. He graduated from McMaster University and Osgoode Hall Law School, and was called to the bar of Ontario in 1963. He established a law practice in Hamilton, and went on to build a distinguished portfolio of development properties in Hamilton and environs. Chuck enjoyed a second home in Muskoka for more than 40 years, where the sunsets on Lake Rosseau never ceased to thrill. A voracious reader and lover of music, food, and conversation, Chuck will be remembered for his charm, upbeat nature, and indomitable spirit. A private family service will be held this week, followed by a public celebration of Charles’ life at a later date.

Dear Gramps,
The times I remember most fondly with you were usually around the dinner table at the cottage, enjoying lively stories and making jokes over a good meal. I will never forget when you and Wendy came to visit me at camp, navigating the rocky Georgian Bay terrain and joining me in the meeting hall for lunch. These and lots of other special moments are things that I will remember forever. I will miss you. Love, Dexter

I will always remember our summers together at the cottage with Nonie, jumping off the boathouse roof and watching the sun set. I have fond memories of our Christmas trips, too, especially riding horses in Costa Rica and going in the hot pools. You once gave me some indispensable advice, and I've never forgotten it. Love, always--D1

Dear Dad:
I can’t believe our time together has come to an end and that we will no longer be making memories to add to the family lexicon. You introduced me to the joy of music and the power of the written word; you taught me that everything is better by candlelight! I believe the measure of a man’s worth is not the balance of his bank account nor his accomplishments, however great they may be, but rather the love he has given and received during his life—and by that measure you rival Croesus. I love and will miss you every day. “And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!”

I am so honoured to have been able to call myself your granddaughter. My time spent with you was always full of cheeky jokes, great food, warmth, laughter, and endless entertainment. I will always cherish my memories of you and the advice you have given me over the years. I will miss you deeply. Until we meet again, R.I.L.Y (as Nonie would say).

Of course this is more about a celebration of a life lived than a mourning for a brother who has passed. Chuck and I have been a brotherly pair of blokes since he and my sister Wendy got together as lovers back in 1978. We hit it off right from the beginning and had been involved in more clandestine episodes than I dare to mention, but I can say that we certainly kept each other honest along the way and really did not have to keep much from my sister Wendy, who would readily embrace our get-together trips. She would always say not to worry and that it gives her a break. This trip was before 9/11 and as the captain I could authorize my 2 flight deck seats to be used by whoever I wanted. So Chuck and I were off to Paris Charles de Gaulle international airport one gorgeous evening back in the late nineties. Upon arriving at Pearson Airport having completed the necessary authorizations Chuck accompanied me through the crew security line ahead of the other passengers. I had him seated in the waiting room with his “flight deck” boarding pass which gave him the opportunity to board anytime after the flight was called. In the meantime I boarded the aircraft with the First Officer to complete the necessary checks that were always done prior to any flight. Once on board I introduced myself to the cabin crew to give them the enroute and arrival weather and expected turbulence that might affect their service. I told them of my brother-in-law occupying the flight deck seat and to let him into the flight deck on boarding. The In-charge flight attendant told me implicitly not to worry and that she would take care of him. The in-charge flight attendant that evening was Pat Descote. You don’t usually remember names but I did this time, because Pat is such a wonderful lady and I was thrilled that night to have her as I/C because of “my guest” in the flight deck. After the flight was called Chuck boarded and
I/C Pat escorted him to the jump seat in the flight deck. Just as an aside comment this seat is really not the most comfortable seat to spend a 7 hour flight. Most crew, both back and front end have endured the discomfort of sitting in the flight deck for extended periods of time. It’s not the way to go unless you really have to go to your destination. Knowing this I was so grateful when Pat, our I/C that evening told Chuck not worry and that she would come and escort Chuck back to first class when they started their service. I was thrilled because I knew Chuck was going to be well taken of. Needless to say I did not see him until the top of descent into Charles de Gualle airport. He wore that sheepish smile that told me he felt like a king. Pat put him in his flight deck seat, fastened his seat belt and returned to the cabin to complete her duties of readying the aircraft for landing. I was rather busy at this time so I did not get the chance to talk to Chuck until the passengers had deplaned and we were alone with the backend crew. Chuck had a standing invitation to the whole crew for dinner in Paris later that evening. Of course, while on duty the whole crew is on expenses so we agreed that Chuck would at least pay for the wine. He was of course more than happy to do just that. Later that evening Pat and two of the flight attendants met us in the lobby for dinner. Needless to say we had a great dinner and a lovely time. And I can truthfully say we never stopped talking about that trip until shortly before his passing.
Chuck, May you Rest In Peace.
