Carl Brian Cornell
January 26, 1938 ~ November 9, 2023 (age 85) 85 Years Old
Beloved father, husband and friend, Carl passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of November 9, 2023. He was in the home he built in 1966, comforted by many wonderful memories and in the presence of family.
Described by family, colleagues, fire fighters, motorcycle club members and many friends as inventive, pragmatic, respected, hilarious, humble and inspirational, Carl portrayed these qualities his entire life. He was wise and witty until the end, enjoying many visits and chats with family and friends as it became more difficult for Carl to travel far from home.
The family is appreciative of the care provided by Dr. Patricia Wong, and the large team of nurses and PSWs for whom Carl was a stoic and entertaining patient.
He will be forever missed and remembered by his four children, 8 grandchildren and 2 great grandsons: Chris, Martha and daughter Emily, Michael, Shelley and daughters Ava and Grace, Heather, Leslie and children Jonah, Sophie, and Mia, Lisa and sons Nathan and Cameron. Great grandsons Eli and Lennon held a special place in their Poppa’s heart.
