Obituary of Carl Edward Larson

Life is like a book that never ends.

Chapters close, but not the book itself.

The end of one physical incarnation is like the end of a chapter,

on some level setting up the beginning of another.


On December 29, 2020, Carl Edward Larson, loving husband and father of seven children, passed away in Canal Flats at the age of 89.


Carl was born on May 13, 1931 in Cranbrook B.C., to Carl and Ida (Erikson) Larson. As a young man Carl worked with his uncle saw milling and logging, then with Crestbrook, scaling in Canal Flats, before he started his own logging company in1977. The Larson’s were one of the pioneer families in Canal Flats. With a competitive spirit, Carl loved to play his favorite sports. You could find him golfing in the summer and curling in the winter. In his younger years, Carl had a great love for the outdoors where he enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time on his property. He was also known for his kind generous heart, and was always looking for a way to serve others.


Carl is survived by his loving wife Muriel (Traverse) Larson and 4 of his 7 children, Carl Ivar (Donna) Larson, Neil (Penny) Larson, Iona Larson, Nathan Larson and daughter-in-law Anne (Lance) Larson, Carl also leaves 10 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.


He was predeceased by his daughters Debra, Melanie, and son Lance.
