With a deep sadness but hearts filled with love and joy we announce the death of Charles Julian Doherty on February 26th, 2023.

Only child of Mabel and Julian Doherty, Charlie was born in Saint John in 1938. It was here that he met and married his best friend, Flo (Harlow). Their journey together lasted for 66 years.

Charlie began a career in education which eventually took him to Fredericton, where he taught at all levels including; elementary, middle school and extension courses at UNB. His fondest memories were of the years spent as principal of Garden Creek Elementary School, his home away from home.

After retirement in 1993 he agreed to join Father Jack Dolan as Lay Administrator for Holy Family Parish; a second career which lasted for 20 years.

Charlie would tell you his greatest joy came from raising his three sons Mark (Anne-Marie), Tim (Alison) and Michael (Maggie). His five grandchildren Sean (Moira), Colleen (Kyle), Brian (Rachel), Erin and Calum, and recently, his great-granddaughter Isla were also a source of pride.

Besides teaching, Charlie enjoyed many happy years coaching in the rinks and ball fields of Fredericton, leading many teams to provincial and Atlantic titles.

Charlie’s love of politics was another passion and he served in many capacities within the Fredericton South Liberal Party.

Charlie was an avid sports fan and cheered on his beloved Montreal Canadiens, the Toronto Blue Jays and lived and died with his Notre Dame football team.

The family would like to extend thanks to Dr. Athar, Dr. Baird and the amazing staff of the Extra-Mural Program and Medigas.

It is with much love and respect that we say so long to Charlie, our rock! Rest now.

Donations can be made to the New Brunswick Lung Association.

Visitation will be held at Bishop’s Funeral Home on Friday March 3rd from 6-8pm and on Saturday March 4th from 11am until Noon at Holy Family Parish, 1500 Hanwell Road Fredericton NB, followed by a Funeral Mass at Noon.  An interment will be held at a later date in the St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery, Hanwell NB.
