Carl passed away peacefully at home on July 9, 2019. He leaves his wife Jeannine, his son Daniel, stepsons Julian and Peter (Corinne), granddaughters Emma and Ivy, brother Robert, sisters Andree, Anne, Carmen (Rene) and Marie-France. Predeceased by his father Claude Tourigny, mother Helene Manseau and his cousin Denise Goudreau. Born February 12, 1949 in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Carl joined the CAF (Airforce) in 1967 and proudly served for 25 years, retiring as a Sergeant. He was posted many places in Canada, as well as Baden Baden, Germany and the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus. He had many tales to tell of his duty in Montreal during the FLQ crisis. Carl was an avid outdoorsman and spent his early years skiing, hunting and skeet shooting. After retiring he worked for CFHA Esquimalt for 15 years, where he made many good friends and had a lot of great laughs. Carl shared his passion for golf by introducing many friends to the sport. He loved to play his guitar and could often be spotted fishing at his favourite place, St Mary’s Lake on Saltspring where he made many lasting friendships while casting for bass or trout. He fell in love with Maui, watching whales, walking the beach, golfing, eating fish tacos at Coconuts and enjoying the company of good friends. Kapulanikai was his heaven on earth. The family would like to thank Dr Francis, Dr Atwell, and staff at Victoria Hospice and Island Health for their loving care. Please join us for a celebration of Carl’s life Saturday, August 17 from 2-4 at Bill Mattick’s, Cordova Bay Golf Course. Donations in his memory can be made to Victoria Hospice or the Pacific Whale Foundation.
