<div itemprop="description">HAYWARD, Charles George <br />Passed away peacefully on January 27th with his family by his side. Born March 16, 1926 in Jersey City, New Jersey. Only child of the late Percy Hayward and Josephine Cooper. Predeceased by his wife of 55 years Mary Elaine Foster and son John. He will be greatly missed by sons Doug and David, daughter Mary Ann (Joey Bush) and granddaughters Kelly and Robin Lapointe. Charlie spent his youth in Ottawa where he graduated from Glebe Collegiate High. He then attended McGill University where he graduated with a BEng in 1949. While attending McGill, Charlie was a proud member of the McGill Redmen hockey team as well as a lifelong member of the Phi Delta Theta House along with his brother-in-law, the late Rod Foster. Following McGill, Charlie worked for more than three decades for Drummond McCall in Lachine. Charlie maintained a passion for hockey throughout his life. He coached hockey for many years in Lachine and Beaconsfield-Kirkland as well as being one of the original Lachine Old-Timers.

In 1983 he was presented by Hockey Lac St. Louis with the prestigious Jack Tero Memorial Award in recognition of his contributions to minor hockey. Loyal to his McGill Redmen roots, he helped form the Friends of McGill Hockey where he served as President.
