Honour a Memory

Charles Nunn
Charles Christopher Nunn born in Kent, England, March 7, 1938; died in Leduc County, December 15, 2012 from chronic lymphocytic leukemia . Charles died in his home and in the care of his loving family: wife Robin Hedley-Smith and daughters Tessa, Kate and Natasha Nunn. Charles will also be dearly missed by Clive and Sue Nunn and their family (brother), Jake & Brodie Gerritse and Caleb & Liam Soligo (grandsons), Adriaan Gerritse and Scott Hayes (sons-in-law), and the many friends and students whose lives he touched with his great mind and generous heart. Charles’ body will be cremated and a memorial gathering held in the Spring to celebrate his life. Donations can be made in lieu of flowers to the Cross Cancer Institute (, a place that provided Charles and Robin with great compassion for the past three years. The family is grateful to all those who helped care for Charles, especially Dr. Ruth Bogoch and Dr. Loree Larratt.

Your support will fund prevention and screening programs so that we can detect cancer even earlier for other families in Alberta, increasing the chances of treatment success.

Memorial gifts also go toward such patient programs as psychosocial resources and financial assistance to help ease the cancer journey for patients and families at the 17 cancer centres across Alberta, including the Cross Cancer Institute and the Tom Baker Cancer Centre.

Thanks for your support and feel free to leave a comment below.

12/22/2012Robin, please accept my deepest sympathy. I fondly recall taking History of Economic Thought with Charles in about 1969; a class of three of us with animated discussions and Charles riveting us with wonderful insights while smoking Gitanes. Charles had a quiet grace about him, and he will be missed. Ernie JacobsonErnie Jacobson
