Carl PEARSON

Carl Douglas Pearson was born in Assiniboia, SK on July 19, 1962. He left us on May 16, 2008, at the age of 45 years. Carl is survived by his parents, Douglas and Velma Pearson, of Medicine Hat, AB, brother Brian (Jackie) and their children Lee and Maria (Godchild) of Edmonton, AB, sister Kathy Puto (Dallas) and son Luke (Godchild), of Red Deer, AB, stepsons Matthew and Adam Richardson and their mother, Michelle Burke, special friend Sandra (Sam) Kolman and her children, Harmonie and Devon Wenaas; as well as many aunts, cousins and friends. Carl took all of his schooling in Mankota, SK. After graduation, Carl moved to Moose Jaw, SK to study his passion, carpentry, at SIAST. Upon completion of his studies, he worked in the oil and gas industry in various regions of Alberta. In 1990, Carl moved to Medicine Hat, where he used his significant carpentry skills at many locales, and worked extensively in the garage door industry, installing both residential and industrial doors throughout southeastern Alberta. In recent years, Carl worked for Gyp-Tec Drywall, where he was shop foreman, until the time of his passing. Carl will be remembered for many things, both in words and deeds, and in his handy work. Probably Carl will be best remembered for his ability to befriend people without judgment or conditions. Carl drank many a coffee, drained countless cell phone batteries and most recently, got sore thumbs from the many text messages sent and received. As technology changed, so did Carl, using what was available to help out others and listen to their problems and their needs. Though Carl lived in the city, he was always a farm boy, with morals and values rooted deeply in the soil of south western Saskatchewan. Whenever time and trade allowed, he would seek the solace of the outdoors, where he was best able to find all that a busy life sometimes does not allow. The celebration of Carl’s life was held at Westminster United Church, 101 – 6 Street S.E., Medicine Hat, on Wednesday, May 21, 2008, at 2 P.M. with Reverend James Farrell officiating. Interment will take place at Wallard Cemetery at a later date. If friends so desire, Memorial Tributes may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Alberta, 124, 430 – 6 Avenue S.E., Medicine Hat, Alberta, T1A 2S8.
