SEQUEIRA, Charles Archibald
September 10, 1925 – November 5, 2016
With deep sorrow and love, the family of Charles Sequeira announces his passing at the age of 91.
Born to Joseph and Isabella Sequeira, Dad’s journey began in the south of India. He obtained his MA in political science at Madras University and his LLB from the University of Pune. He was a Criminal Defence lawyer, Public Prosecutor and Judicial Magistrate. On October 14, 1957, Dad married Rita D’Souza, starting a life together spanning 59 years. In November of 1966, with their three small children, the family moved to Athabasca, Alberta, where Dad began his second career in Education. He impacted many lives as a Social Studies and Humanities teacher. After retirement, Dad continued his public service as Chair of the Board of Education and involvement in various other Local and Provincial Community organizations.
Dad will be lovingly remembered by his devoted wife, Rita; his children, Aroon (Ellen), Prem (Paulette), Nimi (Philip); and his nine grandchildren, Allyson, Aja, Kirin (and their mother Krista), Anna, Adya, Magdalene, Rachel, Gabriel and Marcus. He will be fondly remembered by his extended family and many friends in Canada, the US and India.
The family wishes to express their gratitude to the skilled and compassionate staff at the Misericordia, Grandview and U of A hospitals. A Memorial Service will be held in the spring in Athabasca, the town, where he and Mom lived for 42 years. To honour Dad’s passion for education, the family intends to establish a scholarship fund in his name, prior to the memorial service.
