Charles Russell dePorto


December 18, 1964 – April 20, 2020
Charlie began his life’s journey from the Lake of the Woods District Hospital on December 18, 1964. On April 20, 2021 Charlie left from the Grey Nuns Hospital in Edmonton Alberta, to live in his eternal home. Thank you Dr. Shurraw and Wirzva, the nurses and staff of Unit 54 for their compassionate care during those last days. Your work is made even more difficult in these times.
Charlie will be sadly missed by sisters Bev Beach (Tom), and Janice dePorto (Dan), brother Tim dePorto, and brother-in-law Dymetro Bordynuik all from Kenora, nieces and nephews: Christy, Wendy, Michael, Erin, Teresa, Ryan, and Justin, and their families.
He was predeceased by his parents Art and Norma dePorto, sister Maryellen Bordynuik, and foster brother Kevin Bennett.
Charlie leaves many wonderful memories with his guardians Peter, Linda, and Miranda Ross, and with his amazing care givers: Evaine, Piegi, Jocelyn, Felisa, Anita, and Shalee. He was loved and will be missed by his dear friends Shannon, Stehaine, and Nick.
His guardians thank all those who have supported his life. You gave your hearts of compassion and acted in his best interest. He truly enjoyed life because of you. Thank you, Connie and Kevin who oversaw his care. The Good Samaritan Society lives up to its name, you were the good Samaritan to Charlie, thank you. Many thanks go to Dr. Gushaty, the nurses at the Justik Clinic, and to Dr. Makus for all your care.
Although Charlie enjoyed most of his life, he had difficulty for a period of time. A huge thank you to Jocelyn Austria who supported him through it and went far beyond the call of duty. We appreciated your dedication to Charlie.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Good Samaritan Society (PPDD), 8861-75 Street, Edmonton AB, T6C 4G8.
