Carl was predeceased by his beloved wife Eva and children Gordon (Henriette) Markell and Carol (George) Otto. He was loved and will be missed by his many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Carl is also survived by his sister Jacqueline and brother Lawrence. He will be especially missed by his wee canine companion, Bella, who was with him to the end.
Carl was born in Cobden, Ontario but grew up in Ottawa. At the age of 16, he left to begin his sheet metal apprenticeship in Kingston, Ontario eventually moving back to Ottawa where he worked in the trade for forty plus years before moving to Ingleside and continuing in the trade for another 20 years. Carl was a well-known and loved member of the Ingleside community for over thirty-eight years. Although he was a sheet metal worker by trade, Carl loved spending as much time as he could in his home workshop turning out numerous creations using the lathe, scroll saw or duplicating something (without a pattern) he had seen that he found interesting and given many of them to family and friends. Carl was the versatile go to handyman of St. Matthew’s Church in Ingleside, giving freely of his time, talents, and knowledge with the many projects. In lieu of flowers donations made to St. Matthew’s Presbyterian Church, 15 Memorial St. Ingleside, On K0C 1M0 would be appreciated by the family.
A celebration of Carl’s life will be planned for a later date. Online condolences may be made at www.brownleefuneralhomes.com.
