We Remember

MOHAI, Charles

March 5, 1958 — August 8, 2022

At the age of 64, Charles Mohai passed away peacefully on August 8, 2022. He is survived by his son Alexander Quinn Mohai; father Karoly Mohai; sister and brother-in-law Sue Mohai & Laurence Pugh; and many extended family members.  He was predeceased by his mother, Eva Mohai, in 2014.

Born in Calgary, Alberta in 1958, Charlie moved to Ontario, in 1962, with his family. As a young man, Charlie was very athletic, he excelled at gymnastics; competitive swimming; track and field; and his favourite sport, slalom skiing. He also played the classical violin and was in the high school orchestra as first violinist. When he turned 13 his father started taking him to work on weekends to learn the family trade of Drywalling. Charlie had an artistic hand and was well known and well respected in his field for many years.

Early in his career (when he was about 20), Charlie moved back to Alberta, there he led a full life, and his son, Alex, was born. He passed many traits on to Alex, including his hard work ethic.  Charlie adored his son Alex and was not afraid to tell people that Alex was the light of his life.

In 2016, Charlie visited Big White Ski Resort and fell in love with the mountain. He made a huge impression on those he met and befriended, he now had a whole “mountain family”.  He was a very deep thinker and a big dreamer; these traits were tempered with his wonderful quirky sense of humour.

A huge thank-you to Rachelle and Bruce Marcinkoski for all they did for Charlie and Jazz, the dog that meant the world to him.

A Celebration of Life to honour Charlie will be held at a later date.  For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to your local animal shelter.
