Born in Minitonas, Manitoba, on October 19, 1943, died peacefully at home in Ladysmith on Tuesday, January 10, 2012.
He worked as a civil engineer in all four western provinces, co-authored three books on construction materials and practices, and taught at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology for 25 years until his retirement to Ladysmith.
He was a man of infinite courage and humility; he was greatly inspired by nature and used that to create a beautiful garden. It was his gentle manner and accepting ways that best defined him.
He was the beloved husband and life partner of Marion Andres, the much-loved older brother of David Andres, and a fond uncle of his niece, Ashlea, and his nephew, Sasha. He will be remembered more as a brother than a cousin by Gene Karlik. Carl, Gene and Adam Carlson knew him as a good, kind man.
He will be forever loved and missed.
Telford’s of Ladysmith
