Charles Tinant was born on November 3, 1929 at home on the SW29-7-30 W1. His parents, Vital Tinant and Elina Renard, were very resourceful, hard-working farmers and they taught Charlie to be the same.
Charlie was an incredible storyteller and loved relating his experiences about what it was like growing up during the 30s. At the age of 12 years, he was driving a team of 6 horses cutting crop with a converted binder. He often talked about having to prevent swarms of grasshoppers from invading their precious garden or riding his bicycle to Frys delivering 2 large cream cans to the train station, praying he would not spill. He also talked about his school days at Oatlands School and some of the schoolyard pranks they used to pull.
This shows another one of Charlie’s traits: He was a person who liked to have a good laugh. He always said that it was much better to laugh about things than it was to cry. Even if he didn’t know a person too well, he would soon break the ice and say something that would surprise everyone in the room.
On October 23rd, 1950, he married Lucille Moreau, the love of his life. They had 5 children: Jeannine, Roger, Velia, Pierre, and Guy. He also had 15 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren all of whom were dear to him.
Charlie was very proud of his family and went to great lengths to express that pride. One of the greatest things he valued in life was a good education and he made sure that all his children finished high school and encouraged them to continue their education after that. He was also a very devout man and practiced his religion faithfully. His love of the land, his hard work ethic, his ability to solve problems and fix anything was transmitted to each and every one of his kids.
When he decided to retire after farming for over 55 years, he and Lucille enjoyed camping and fishing. They also travelled all over Canada.
In spite of the fact that Charlie was born during very difficult times, he always claimed to have had a good life. May he rest in peace.
