Carl George Delamarter

May 4, 1931 ~ November 13, 2021 (age 90)


Carl was born in farming country west of Bashaw, Alberta to Isa Calahan Delamarter and Merl Delamarter. He was the third child in the family, preceded by Raymond and Alma, and followed by Stanley. He was born in close proximity to the home he lived in for most of his life. He went to school at Ellice District School and then high school at Alix and Red Deer College, Alberta.  

In 1953 he married Joyce Henkel from Bashaw, Alberta. Carl and Joyce bought the farm from his parents when they moved and farmed that land for the next 50 years until they retired and moved to Ponoka, Alberta.  Joyce passed away earlier this year on January 31st. Carl was predeceased by his parents and his brothers.

Carl was a man of faith and good character. He was a member of the Ellice Free Methodist Church for many years, a good father, husband, friend and neighbor. He loved making friends wherever he went and he “let his light shine” encouraging and supporting others.

He has 12 great grandchildren who will also miss him as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
