CARLSON, Carl Gustaf
It is with heavy hearts and much love we announce the passing of Carl Gustaf Carlson at the age of 82 years, December 31, 1936 - December 26, 2019.
Carl was born in Mayerthorpe, Alberta and raised on the family farm. Predeceased by Gus and Jessie Carlson of Mayerthorpe both in 1984, brother Roy of Mayerthorpe in 2001, and sister Ruth Schauer of Rimbey, Alberta in 2017, Carl is survived by his sister Marie Slack of Lacombe, Alberta, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Carl had many interests, but the greatest were farming, knowing your community and helping your neighbour. In times of crisis you knew your fields were being harvested by your family, friends and strangers. It’s just what you do. . . It’s what all farmers do. It’s the key to what put a smile on his face from sunrise to sunset.
Carl will be missed by all who knew and loved him. We will shut the gate for you. Your season is over and your harvest is done. On the 8th day. . . “God made a Farmer”
Special thanks to the Lacombe Health Care Centre and Staff.
Love Marie and Family
