Born in Barrie, Ontario in 1906 and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1928, and from Wycliffe Theological College in 1931. He served six years at Bradford, 12 years at Whitby and six years at Christ Church, Scarborough. He married Eleanor Martha Carr (1906-2004) and together they had four children: Robert, Mary, Ann and Patricia. Rev. Channen died at Lake Mississauga on April 18, 1960 and is buried at St. Margaret's Cemetery, West Hill, Ontario.

Marjorie Georgina Ruddy (1908-1980) was a prominent Whitby photographer and the only commercial photographer in Whitby during the 1930s and 1940s. Marjorie was the official photographer for the Whitby Police Department starting in the 1930s and as a result took many photographs of car accidents, fingerprints and crime scenes. (Station Gallery.
