Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Karl was a very entertaining man. Very determined and self willed but was willing to take chances. He may not have been demonstrative but bragged about his kids whenever you talked to him. Loved his place in the country although often said he was lonely. It will be strange to not see him around. - Posted by: noreen stone (friend) on: Feb 02, 2023

  • Dear Carla, Erica and Adam. My deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your dad. I have many fond memories of your dad from over the years and I hope all your good memories live on with you forever. May he Rest In Peace. Marlene - Posted by: Marlene Dyck (Family friend) on: Jan 31, 2023
