Thomas A. Chartier

August 04, 1947 - December 27, 2023


Thomas A. Chartier, age 76 of Bellingham, Washington passed away peacefully on December 27, 2023. Tom was born and raised in Bellingham, WA on August 4, 1947 to Rachalle and George A. Chartier. He attended schools in Bellingham and Skagit County. Tom went to work for Georgia Pacific September of 1966, a millwright by trade with the latter years as the vibration analyst until GP’s closure in 2007. After retirement, Tom spent his time woodworking, and was a proud member of two car clubs, Skagit Old Car Club and Whatcom County Cruiser. Tom also went on many adventures traveling with Judy. Some of his favorites were traveling to locations where he could scratch off his bucket list of places such as the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick, Jamaica, a family cruise to Alaska, and to the Maine coast, renting a car in Boston with friends, and visiting as many lighthouses as possible along the way.

Tom is survived by his wife Judy G. Chartier, son Marc Chartier (Sara) of Philadelphia, daughter Renee Chartier (Brian Wallace) of Oak Harbor, grandson George Chartier and granddaughter Raylin Lee Wallace. Tom was preceded in death by both his parents and with his first grandchild, Olivia Lousie in 2010.

A Celebration of Life for Tom will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2024, at the Bellingham Ferry Terminal at 1:00.

    It saddens me to hear this. My condolences to Tom’s family. I got to know Tom when we both worked at GP. He was always a nice guy to be around. I bumped into him several times after retirement and we would have a good talk about our times at the mill.

  3. Jerry Hart says:

    I had the pleasure and privilege of being Tom’s brother-in-law. Although because we lived on opposite coasts, I didn’t get to see him very often. But, on those occasions when we were able to get together, it was always an enjoyable experience. Tom was a true gentleman, patriot, and a loving husband, father and grandfather. I will miss him dearly.
