Dear uncle to his nieces Carol Hoare (Ron), Gail Kelly and Susan Smith. Nephews Ken Jowett (Nancy), Tim Jowett (MaryAnn) and Calvin Blanchard.
Special friend to Dmitri Senkov (Katia)
Carl was born, raised and lived his entire life in the Lyn area. He was a former Reeve of Elizabethtown Township. He was a member of many committees including the Board of Governors of Brockville General Hospital. He attended Lillies school and BCI. In his late teens and early twenties, he worked for Phillips Cables in Brockville. When his father passed away, he returned to the family dairy farm to operate and manage it. He eventually changed the operation to beef cattle raising some of the best cattle in the area. He was proud of his farm and his heritage where he remained all his life.
Many young men worked for Carl on the farm, haying during the summers. Carl was a great mentor and influence on these young minds. Many remained lifetime friends and continued to visit with him regularly on his farm.
Carl was a special friend to many throughout his life. For all those who knew him, they will remember how he listened, advised and mentored. Carl always said when extending your hand in greeting; make sure it is a firm handshake. It showed good character.
Commitment and dedication to memorials was very important to Carl. He was instrumental in getting the Douglas A Scott memorial in the village Lyn. He also spent many hours helping to build the Veterans Memorial.
In 2016 Carl was honoured to be named Lyn’s Citizen of the Year by the Heritage Place Museum.
Carl was instrumental in bringing Dmitri Senkov from Belarus to Canada at a young age where he lived with Carl on the farm. With Carl’s help, Dmitri eventually was able to immigrate to Canada.
