Charles Lester Elton

January 6, 1950 to May 9, 2020

Obituary

Sadly, Charlie left us early on May 9, 2020.  We will miss his dry humour, wise counsel and astute leadership at the helm of Dodge City/Royal Garage Ltd for almost 50 years.  He was a keen hiker and enjoyed weekend treks along the East Coast Trail. As he often remarked, “On a fine day, there is no better place to be on this earth”. Charlie also enjoyed nurturing his annual tomato crop in his greenhouse.  Latterly, he was fortunate to fit in many travel adventures around the world and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro during one of these outings.  Charlie was down-to-earth, quietly generous, opinionated, and principled.  His sons Sandy and Greg, and their mother Cathy survive him.  While his parents Charlie and Margaret (O’Brien) Elton and brother Brian predeceased him.  He leaves memories with siblings Dorothy Elton (Walter) and David Elton (Cavelle) and well as nephew Michael Elton.  Deepest gratitude to Cousin Margie O’Brien Hand and Charlie’s brother David for dealing with logistics that enabled Charlie to stay in the comfort and calm of his home during his recent illness.  Charlie preferred a quiet leaving with family and friends remembering his life, steadfastness, and courage.  In memory of Charlie, donations may be made to EAST COAST TRAIL ASSOCIATION: https://www.gifttool.com/donations/Donate?ID=2023&AID=1964&_mid_=8656

My deepest condolences for your great loss.
Yesterday I was shocked and saddened to hear of Charlie’s passing. He will be always remembered as we hike along his favorite trail from Bull Cove to Brigus.

Sandy, Greg and family,

Sincere condolences for your loss. All of my deepest sympathies are with you and your family at this time.

To the Elton Family,
We were saddened to learn of Charlie’s passing. We have been associated with The Royal Garage and Dodge City and with Charlie’s father before him and we’re still a customer and friend. Our deepest condolences to the Family.

Julie and Clayton Smith

My sincere sympathy to the Elton family. Charlie and I shared a special relationship since we were patients at the old General Hospital back in the 1960’s and were friends ever since, although we didn’t spend a lot of time together after. Of course, our families have been friends in business for many years as my father, Fred Adams, was a partner in Adams Service Station for over 40 years.

Our Condolences to the Elton Family
So sorry to hear of Charlies passing i have many fond memories working for Charlie and his father before before him he really showed me the way in the business of selling at the Royal Garage he was strict but a very kind person in many many ways.
The businesses he built enriched the lives of so many people and families, including my own. We’re all so lucky to have known him.
Have a great hike climbing those stairs to heaven!!
He was one of a kind. R.I.P Charlie
We send sympathy to all Charlies family.

Bern, Cecilia and Family

Condolences to the Elton family on the loss of Charlie.I’ve been an employee of the Royal Garage for a long time and Charlie always treated me well.He provided a good living for many people over the years.
I sometimes would see Charlie walking in Bowring Park.He would always stop for a quick hello. Rest in peace.

Go rest high on that mountain Charlie your work on earth is done my dearest friend.. I did notice Bowering Park where you walked everyday shut down as soon as you were admitted to hospital and didn’t reopen until you left this earth for your next adventure. . I know you were right in your element climbing those stairs to heaven taking a little break while having a good look all around on your way to be with your mom just in time for Mothers Day.
I send my sympathy to all Charlies family. HE was one of a kind

My sincere condolences to the entire Elton family.
Charlie was instrumental in the beginning of my career in the Automotive Business…and was always more than accommodating and supportive over the years to both me and my family.
Lots of great memories during my time at Dodge City.

So very sorry to hear the sad news of Charlie’s passing. His presence will be missed in the community for sure.
There are many warm memories of the early years in Mount Pearl and on Cornwall Crescent when Dorothy and I became good friends.
The Elton home in Mount Pearl was on a huge lot and and they always had a beautiful garden. It was a treat to be there at harvest time when the family would share the bounty with us and the neighbours.
My sincere condolences to Dorothy, Dave and the families.

To the Elton Family. I am so sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. I have many fond memories of growing up on Cornwall Crescent living across the street from the Eltons.

I have worked for Ches’s Fish and Chips for many years now on Freshwater Road and we would always be happy to see Mr. Elton come in for his feed of fish and chips on his bike. He was a very kind man with a great personality and will surely be greatly missed by many.

My sincere condolences to the Elton Family, Greg,Sandy.Cathy & David so sorry. I have many stories to tell of the Elton family. The Royal Garage is situated on the property which my Dad owned and which Charlie Sr purchased many years ago.. We watched the business expand over the years to what it is today..We felt the Royal Garage and the Eltons were part to the family neighborhood. Many of the younger Dunne children who grew up in the neighborhood played on the car lot, teased the watchmen,played with Brian & Charlie.They have lots of memories today of the Royal Garage and the Elton Family.. My Mom and Charlie Sr were great friends. Janet, my niece worked with Charlie Sr and Charlie Jr for 39 years. She had great respect for both . I tell this story because today the neighborhood and family feel the sorrow of the Elton Family. Ever remembered in Dunn’s Lane RIP.

I only had the privilege of knowing this man for a short time i was his roommate for about a week at St. Clare’s hospital .As we were not allowed any visitors so we formed a brotherly bond and helped each other as much as possible, I think we could have been good friends, deepest condolences to the family.RIP my friend

My sincere condolences to the Elton Family on Charlie’s passing, much too soon. There are many stories to tell of Charlie’s travels. One I really love is Charlie traveled to South Africa to meet the family of Peter Windsor. Peter’s sister, Mary Emma Eugenie Windsor married Charles F. Lester, our great-grandfather. In fact three years ago some of Peter’s family came to St. John’s to visit. RIP.

Sandy, Marie and I are so sorry to hear of your father’s passing. Our sincere condolences to you and your family.

So sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. I will miss Charlie’s passionate discussions we had with all what was wrong with the car business….. occasionally we would talk about the many good things about it. As he always called me “young Fella” I suddenly feel much older. We never met too many times in person but communicated by phone lots…..he was away ahead of the Social Distance protocols I guess… Rest in peace my friend.

I was saddened to hear of Charlie’s passing. My sincere condolences to all of his family. Like my brother Colin, I met Charlie through my father Sam who took me along as his caddy on many a Saturday morning when he and Charlie golfed together with their regular foursome, including Ray Halley and Jim Chalker. Charlie was always a lot of fun to be around, and I know my father thought the world of him. Great times and lifetime memories. We will all miss you Charlie.

My condolences to the Elton family. Rest in Peace Charlie, I really enjoyed our chats over the last few years.

I was so very sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. I am thinking of Dorothy and David and also of all the great memories having grown up next door on Cornwall Crescent.

We were so sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. Doug and I had run into him about 8 weeks ago in Bowring Park and we had a lovely chat. about an upcoming trip to South Africa.. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family at this time.

So sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. We were in many classes together when we both completed the B. Comm. program at Mun. A very good man is now gone. Condolences to the Elton family.

Charlie was a kind, generous, charming man. We knew him mainly through hiking. It was his passion. He knew people everywhere through his business, of which he was very proud. He knew a trail or scoped one out wherever he went. If he was by himself he’d leave his ‘pedal-bike’ at one end and pick it up on the way home. Never daunted by weather or terrain he loved being on a trail to anywhere. He documented his adventures on his many disposable cameras; you know if you were one of his subjects. The special delivery of fresh cod tongues and scallops to Golden Bay in a dense fog was particularly memorable.The Southern Shore was a favorite destination, he had very fond memories of trips there with his father. We hiked with Charlie often and are proud that his name is one of those we thanked in our hiking book. He will be missed.
Mary Smyth and Fred Hollingshurst

Great walking friend well miss you.

David and Dorthy I am so sorry for your loss.. Charlie loved life to the fullest
He will be missed

Marie (OBrien) Murphy and John Murphy

On behalf of myself and Mother, Gertrude Elton, I am so sorry to hear that Charlie has passed. I would see him regularly on his walks through Bowring Park and at the Duke where he was a regular for a time. We would always chat about his travels and love for Istanbul. I remember when he finished his climb of Kilimanjaro.. I am sorry he did not squeeze in another trip.
My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

To the Elton family our heartfelt condolences

Sandy,
Sending many thoughts and prayers to you and your family during this difficult time. Rest In Peace Mr. Elton

My sympathies go out to the family as Charlie has left us way too early. My introduction would go back to around 1977 or so, being a young golfer at Bally Haly, Dad would let me caddy on Saturday mornings in a foursome that included Jim Chalker, Ray Halley and Charlie. I learned so much about the game and life on those mornings and Charlie was a dear friend to Dad, speaking highly about him at all times. “Watch the old man”, he would exclaim. Will miss his dry humour and straight talk. I am delighted that he was able to embrace the great outdoors as much as he did after putting the clubs away. God Bless

Dear Cathy , Sandy , Greg and all family members ,
To say that Charlie was a unique and special human being is an understatement . I only got to know Charlie from meeting him in Bowring Park while walking my poodles . He always greeted me with a friendly hello and always made me feel good with his compliments about how I cared for my dogs . I always came away feeling so positive .
Charlie is mostly known by walkers in Bowring Park as “ the very friendly guy who has no dogs but always picks up after irresponsible pet owners ! “
How many people would do this ? It speaks volumes about his love and respect of nature and hiking and keeping our enviornment clean and beautiful . He was admired and respected so much . One of a kind he surely was . I as well as so many will miss his presence happily walking by enjoying the park, never passing by without saying hello .
Rest In Peace Charlie ! You will be missed ! ❤️

Please accept our sincere expression of condolence

Condolences to Sandy,Greg and the Elton family on the
passing of Charlie.As you know I worked for Charlie for
many years and have always found him to be a man of
integrity who took his responsibilities as a boss very
seriously.,although he did enjoy a laugh now and then.A
good man who will be missed..

We are saddened to hear of Charlie’s passing. and offer our condolences tombs family. He will be missed.

Sandy, Greg and family,
We are so very sad that Charlie has left us all. “Charming Charlie” was always enthusiastic about the next adventure. Some of the weekend adventures included, Dqve and Cavelle’s for snowmobiling,, hiking and ferry adventure to Petit Forte and beyond, Port Rexton for a mock trial resulting from an ECT experience, hiking the Trinity South D’Iberville trail from Hopeall only to finish off with lawn volleyball, snowshoeing to Brigus lighthouse, and many, many Sunday hikes on the East Coast Trail with fun filled apes parties in Cornwall. We were so hopeful to resume our hiking this May long weekend. Rest in peace Charlie.

We are very saddened to hear of Charlie’s passing. He was always a loyal and engaged member of our association over the years. Our condolences go out to the entire Elton Family

My sympathies to the family. I remember Charlie for his humour, kindness and appreciation of family.

It was a sad day yesterday to hear that Charlie had passed away. He was a loyal family friend to our parents for many years and part of the Charlie, Keith, Ray and Sam group that shared many laughs and stories over the years…
I’ll never forget the time Neil and I were hiking the Flamber Head Path and met Charlie with a friend hiking from the opposite direction. We intended to hike half way and back as we only had one car at LaManche. They had a car at each end and Charlie insisted on taking our vehicle to Brigus South so we could enjoy the entire hike. A great day. Deepest condolences to the Elton family.

I was very, very sad to learn of Charlie’s passing. My deepest sympathy to his family. I’ll always think of him hiking the East Coast Trail.

My sincere sympathies to the Elton family .
I went to school with Charlie and spent time at the Elton home nursing Mrs Elton when she was ill . Charlie was always very kind to me. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
Barb Chafe Mosher.

Gaye Broderick

To The Elton Family,
I am heartbroken and so very sorry for your loss. Charlie was a wonderful man. I will certainly miss his humour. He gave me a career at Dodge City for which I’m very thankful. He helped so many families over the years in a silent way. He dearly loved his hikes and travels. His face lit up recounting how amazing the nature was on his last vacation or some interesting fact about the venue. Such a kind soul who will be dearly missed.
Please take comfort in your memories of him. He was one of a kind. Rest in peace Charlie.

The Elton Family,
Our deep and sincere condolences on Charlie’s (AKA “Flipper”) untimely passing. We are deeply saddened and will remember him fondly for the many hikes we took on the East Coast Trail and all the great times we shared. RIP
Barry & Glenda

I learned of Charlie’s health issues just over a week ago but was truly saddened when I learned that he passed away. I have known and held him in high regard for over 50 years and always enjoyed a chance meeting whether it was hiking on the Skerwink Trail or enjoying a winter walk in Bowring Park. Last time I saw him was during a pre-pandemic walk in Bowring Park when we had an amusing back and forth banter about the need to replace his $1 cotton gloves with a proper pair of winter gloves., or at least put on two pairs to keep his hands warm. That discussion went back and forth for about two minutes, much to the enjoyment of us both. Every chance meeting with Charlie was like that and now that Bowring Park is reopening, I sure will miss his presence and the enjoyable banter.
My sincere condolences to his family

I am very sorry to hear about Charile, my thoughts are with you and your family. Christine Stead

An interesting man, Charlie Elton. I will fondly remember Charlie for introducing me to the EC T and the many hikes we did as he ensured I got to hike all the trails. I was impressed with Charlie’s love of nature and his conscious commitment to the environment. He was unpretentious and supported the earth in a quiet way. May you rest in peace Charlie Elton.

Cathy, Sandy and Greg I was shocked to hear about Charlie’s demise.
Although I have not seen him lately I considered him to be my very good friend. We played golf for 30 years and went on many enjoyable golf trips-Cathy remember PEI.
Who ever described him in the obituary-they described CHARLIE to a “ tee”. God bless you all🙏

My condolences to Charlie’s family on their loss.

So sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. I never had the pleasure of meeting him, but I have heard so much from my dad talking about his cousin, Charlie. Very well respected man.. Deepest condolences to the family.

I had the pleasure of hiking Mount Kilimanjaro with Charlie in 2008. He was easily on of my favourite people on the trip. We spent many hours hiking along carrying on some of the greatest conversations I have ever had. Rest easy Charlie- you made me think and you made me laugh. Your family and friends will feel your absence every day. Farewell my hiking buddy- May many new adventures await you- Michele

Greg and Sandy please accept my condolences on your dads passing.

Oh my. Charlie was a mentor a leader..he introduced me to so many trails and gatherings. I’ll never forget the lobster cracking adventures. Or the weekends spent in cabins exploring friendships and trails. It was all about trails but deep down it was about friendship. I am so sad. I am so sad.

So sad to hear of Charlie’s passing. Have many fond memories growing up on Cornwall Cresent together and in the same business class at MUN. We always enjoyed a chat and reminisced of our youth when we ran into each other .

He will be sadly missed.

Sharon and I are very saddened indeed to hear of Charlies’ passing. We have many happy memories of hiking trails with Charlie over the years, sometimes deep in conversation, sometimes simply enjoying nature together. Sharing tails of travel and hiking adventures, thrown in with plenty of dry humour was always a joy. We’ll miss Charlie. Sincere condolences to his family.

I was driving in Cornwall Ave. one night when I saw a flash of light behind me. Next thing a bullet passed me and disappeared around the bend at P & P Grocery. All that was left was a vapour trail of blue smoke that hung in the air from Cornwall Cres to Craigmiller Ave. Legend in his own time. RIP.

I’m so sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. We used to run into each other in the park when we were both out walking and we would stop to have a chat. I always enjoyed having a chance to catch up. Sending you all our sincere condolences.

Charlie treated my family with nothing but kindness for many years. He always greeted me with a smile when I worked at the front desk at dodge city. He will be missed.

To the Elton family,

I’m so very sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. He was a kind person with a gentle soul and a passion for travel– I used to love hearing about his frequent treks to the far corners of the world while I worked on the Saturday switchboard at the Garage.

The businesses he built enriched the lives of so many people and families, including my own. We’re all so lucky to have known him.

Thinking of you all, and I hope that his memory and legacy bring you comfort during this sad time.

Our deepest condolences to Sandy and family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
