November 22, 1929 ~ April 29, 2020

On April 29, 2020, at age 91, Charlie lost his battle with Mesothelioma.  With his wife and family by his side, he said his last goodbyes peacefully.

Charlie was born on a farm near Vibank, Saskatchewan.  He moved to Pine Falls in the fall of 1950 to work for the Manitoba Paper Company as a pulpwood cutter and later hired on to work in the Boiler Room Department as a steam engineer, until his retirement in 1989.

He is survived by his lovely wife of 63 years Christine, three sisters, Katherine (Ed), Gertie (Horst), Anne (Garry) and sister-in-law Shirley (Jim) and many nieces and nephews.

Charlie was the oldest of eight siblings, four of which had predeceased him; brothers Leo (Ella), Louise (George), Elizabeth (Mike) and Jim.  Other family members that predeceased him were his father John, mother Louise, stepmother Rosemarie, baby brother Lawrence and his grandson Joey.

Pine Falls was also where he found the love of his life, Christine (Lesin) and married in 1956.  They raised two sons, Don (Terry) and Jim (Joanne) and he was very proud of them.  They gave them four grandchildren, Gordon (April), Brian (Amanda), Bill (Theresa), Aimee (David) and Baby Joey (deceased).  He is also leaving behind eight great-grandchildren, Ethan, Memphis, Braxton, Abbygail, Louis, Annabelle, Claire and Charlie.

Charlie loved the outdoors and spent many hours hunting and fishing.  His hobbies included taxidermy, knifemaking and carving.  He would have loved to take his grandchildren and later his great-grandchildren to spend time with him in the outdoors, hoping they would enjoy the wonders of nature the way he did, but time goes by much too fast.  He enjoyed watching them grow up and change to young adults over time.

The family wants to say a special thank you to Dr. Bassily, Dr. Clark, Lisa Kemball and all the wonderful Homecare staff for helping keep Charlie comfortable in the last few months.  May God be with you all.

Celebration of life to be determined at a later date.

Condolences for the family of “Charlie Niedermayer”

Condolence from Brandy on May 1st, 2020 1:07 pm

I just want to extend my whole families sympathies to you all. “Uncle” Charlie was an amazing man whom we all loved and shared great memories with. I will always remember sneaking over from grams to have a visit with him while he worked in his garage! Rest peacefully uncle, and thank you for the wonderful memories!

The Guertin family

Condolence from Chris Romano on May 1st, 2020 8:00 pm

My deepest and most sincere condolences to Christine and all family and friends. I may not have spent as much time with Charlie as I had wanted (as a child I was always grateful that he remembered and sent me Birthday cards) but I fondly remember a duck hunting trip that he took Dan Frechette and I on. I also am a proud owner of one of Charlie’s hunting knives that my dad had given me and have always been quick to point out with pride that my Godfather made it.

Rest easy Charlie
God Bless
Chris Romano

Christine, I am so very sorry to hear of your loss.

Condolence from Allan on May 3rd, 2020 7:35 pm

My deepest sympathy to Christine and the entire family. I will miss the talks with Charlie when I would stop by and his willingness to share his experiences and his enthusiasm for the outdoors.
I know I wasn’t the only person that would return to his home for him to sharpen the knives he made us even 30 years ago. He always said we all would have to learn to sharpen them ourselves. Little did he know we did learn but just really enjoyed the visits.
Thanks Charlie you left a life long lasting impression just like your knives.

Condolence from Jan Fluter on May 4th, 2020 7:14 pm

Aunt Christine , Don & Jim and to your families. Thinking of you at this difficult time. Uncle Charlie was a very special man in my world. I saw a gentle spirit that was quiet and peaceful, humble, reassuring and wise.
He holds a special place in my heart. He was so talented and when you acknowledged the workmanship and craftsmanship that went into his labour’s of love he was so humble about it.
He drew people to him like a magnet and was always willing to give sage advise. It was uncle Charlie that put my mind at rest when I was going thru a full thickness macular hole the other part of this story is that it was a miracle that it closed naturally when I visited his sisters in BC.
Uncle Charlie was a very lucky man having Aunt Christine by his side for all those years! And the boys Don & Jim and your families gave him so much pride and joy. Please take care of yourselves and stay safe!
