Charles (Chick) Henry Marlow

December 11, 1932 - July 5, 2015


On Sunday morning, July 5, 2015, Charles “Chick” Henry Marlow passed away at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital at the age of 82 years with his family by his side.  Chick was born in Fort Macleod, Alberta on December 11, 1932 to Bill and Lillian Marlow. 

Chick married the love of his life, Beverley June Owen on February 21, 1952.  He moved with his wife and children from Lethbridge, Alberta in 1966 and continued his career in the roofing business.  After a few years, he owned and operated his own roofing business (United Roofing Ltd.) until his retirement in 1997.  He enjoyed bowling and curling and his free time was spent with his family and chasing grandkids from rink to rink.  His love of hockey had him at all Kootenay Ice games, sharing seats with his son Trace and grandson Wyatt.  Chick spent many hours in the barn with his granddaughters, Shandi and Caitlin.  He loved the cowboy way and values of life.  He was the special constable and inspector for the SPCA for many years.  He passed this passion and love of animals on to his family.  He will be missed and forever in our hearts.

Chick leaves to cherish his memory his beloved wife of 63 years, Bev as well as one son Trace (Kati) Marlow and one daughter Heather Henry.  He also leaves five grandchildren; Cameron, Dietrich, Shandi, Caitlin and Wyatt and four great grandchildren; Matthew, Mackenzie, Lukas and Hailey.  Chick was predeceased by his three children, Donald, Terry and Rick Marlow, two sisters May Hebert and June Stromme.

A Celebration of Chick’s Life will be held at Mount Zion Lutheran Church, 920 – 11th St. S., Cranbrook on Saturday, July 11, 2015 at 1:30 pm.  Memorial donations may be made in memory of Chick to the BC Children’s Hospital, 4480 Oak Street, Vancouver, BC V6H 3N4.  Condolences may be left for the family at

Relation: Relationship - How did you know the deceased?

Dear Bev, Trace and family, so sorry to hear of your loss. I will always have fond memories of the times we spend volunteering together for the SPCA years ago. My thought are with all of you.

From: Wendy Cullum (Carry)
Relation: He was a "mentor" to me

Bev, Trace, and family…. Chick was a mentor to me in many ways. With horses, and Boston Terriers – along with Bev. He was such a good man. I remember him fondly because he was always involved in the things I was – Maverick Riding Club for example. I respected him, trusted his knowledge and advice, and held him in the highest esteem. I am so sorry we have lost another great man. I can’t be in Cranbrook for the services due to work, but I send my and my Mom’s deepest gratitude and condolences for all Chick meant to me/us, and so many others. His memory will shine on long after he moves to greener pastures. With much love…..Wendy.
