It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Carl Victor Thomas on September 15th at Hospice House in Vernon. He was predeceased by his parents, Vern and Opal, his sister and brother in-law, Elsie and Ralph Ovens, and his brother, Al. He is survived by his wife Carol; their children, Darryl (Tanya) Thomas, Dwayne (Tamara) Thomas, Kerry (Paul) Hunter, Lauralee Thomas; and his grandchildren, Justine, Mackenzie, Cameron, Michael and Tyler.
Carl was born in Saskatchewan and came to BC at an early age with his parents. He was an avid outdoorsman, collector of model trains, and musician.
The family would like to thank all the caring staff at Hospice House, who made Carl’s final days as comfortable as possible.
A short Celebration of Life will be held at 7:00pm on Wednesday, September 28, 2011 at the Elk’s Hall, 3103 30th St.
