Obituary of Charles 'Charlie' Martin Conway-Halifax,New Waterford
Charlie was born in New Waterford and lived there until 2005 when he moved to Halifax to be close to his family. He was a son of the late Jim and Annie (Petrie) Conway. Charlie was a proud Cape Bretoner who was a kind soul and always ready to help in any way he could. When living in Cape Breton, Charlie worked as a construction supervisor for JW Stevens and for Devco. As well he was recognized as an exceptional carpenter/cabinet maker who did many local projects throughout the community. Charlie’s home and family were his pride and joy. He always said his grandchildren and great grandchildren are what made him” Great”. He always had a story to tell and famous one liners. He was also a friend of Bill W and friends.

In true Cape Breton style, we leave you with one of Charlie’s most famous one liners, “You can always tell a Cape Bretoner but you can’t tell “em much.”
