Gunner Ralph Carlson
(February 18, 1923 - March 29, 2019)
Gunner was born February 18th, 1923 the youngest child of Olivia and Carl Carlson in Bawlf Alberta. He passed away peacefully March 29th, 2019 at the age of 96 years.
Gunner grew up on the family farm north of Bawlf and attended Oak Park school. Gunner served his country as a soldier in WWII.
On August 31, 1963 Gunner married Louise Noullett. Together they raised three children on their family farm northeast of Bawlf. Gunner enjoyed everything. He curled, danced, played cards, raised cattle, which he preferred over grain farming; and loved spending time with family and friends. Gunner was, to say the least, a hard worker. Along with farming Gunner enjoyed his second job, trucking. He loved to haul gravel and enjoyed relating the ever ending tales of being on the road.
Gunner is survived by his daughters Rhonda (Norm), and Tanja; son Mark; along with grandchildren Ashley, Nathan, Jarret, Jayden and Lexi; and many nieces and nephews. Gunner was predeceased by his parents; wife Louise; siblings Alan, Elsie, Everett and Ethel; and granddaughter Jessica.
A Memorial and time of fellowship and refreshment was held at 1:00 p.m., Monday, April 22, 2019 from the Masonic Hall, 5021 48 St Camrose.
If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Gunner's memory may be made to St. Mary's Palliative Care, or to STARS.
