His obituary published 20 Feb 2008 in The Times Colonist reads in part as follows:

“WALDMAN, Charles (b. 1925 in Poland), the last of five sons of Yacov and Rose Waldman, died peacefully the morning of February 17, 2008 in Victoria. Chuck was cherished by his family and revered by the entire Jewish Community of Victoria in which he played a prominent role for the past 40 years. Earning his BSc. in Chemistry from the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, he first worked as a chemist for Cominco in Trail, where he met Clare Wise, his wife to be. After working as a hardware merchant in Rossland, B.C. for the next twenty years, he went back to university at the age of 40 to become a high school math teacher. He taught mathematics for several years at both Reynolds and finally Oak Bay Secondary schools until his retirement. He is survived by his wife Clare, his three children, (names edited out for privacy). Forever considerate of others, Chuck was the personification of the Yiddish word mensch” and will be missed by everyone whose path he graced.
