It is with a heavy heart that the Poliquin family from Ottawa announces the sudden passing of their brother Charles, a strength trainer much esteemed in his community. He was 57 years old. He leaves behind his daughter Krystal, his brothers Michel, Daniel and Louis, his beloved sisters, Isabelle and Stéphanie as well as a countless number of friends. A celebration of his life will take place. Details on the event will be shared in the next few days.

In all likelihood, a fish oil and Vitamin C overdose.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Saw on T Nation it was a heart attack. Kind of ironic, but still sucks. He was not old.

What the fuck! It must have been some kind of undiagnosed congenital defect. I mean, 57 is WAY to young to die like that...

He had a series of heart attacks and bypass surgery in his early thirties. He blamed it on mercury poisoning from the amount of dental work he had done. He also claimed low magnesium was a contributing factor.

His family has a history of early heart attacks. Chuck also reportedly used a lot of performance enhancing substances for a long time.
