In Loving Memory Of

Carl Strid


Carl Strid, resident of Grande Prairie, passed away on Friday, June 19, 2015 at Points West Grande Prairie at the age of 94 years. Carl was born in Camrose and grew up in the Badheart area on the family farm. He homesteaded briefly after serving in the Canadian Army. Carl and his young family then moved to Grande Prairie where he pursued his lifelong career of trucking. Carl loved summer weather. He used to say “I hope summer comes on a Sunday this year, so I don’t have to work”. Carl had a fascination with all things mechanical. He was well known for his work ethic, his immaculate vehicles and his beautifully groomed lawn. We will always fondly remember our Sunday picnics and road trips. He will be sadly missed by his sons Vern (Shirley) Strid, Don (Susan) Strid, his daughter Diana Strid, step-sons Steve (Val) Comis, Mike (Carolyn) Comis, his sister Grace (Ken) Taylor, sister-in-law Olive Strid as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife Vi Strid (nee Comis), brother Lester Strid, sister Eleanor Jensen, father Olaf Strid, mother Ethel Strid (nee Caul) and grandson Brennan Comis. There will be a private family service held at the gravesite. Memorial donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice.

In Loving Memory of

Carl Strid
