Dale Emile Cartier

22 junio , 195128 diciembre , 2020

It is with great sadness that the family of Dale Emile Cartier announces his passing after several months of heart complications and then heart surgery on December 15. He passed away peacefully on December 28 in Edmonton at the Mazankowski Heart Institute at the age of 69 with his wife and children by his side.

Dale will lovingly be remembered by his wife of 49 years Brenda, his children Derek (Tammy) Cartier, their children Kjel and Kate, Richelle (Murray) Klak, their children Trey, Peyton and Averi. Dale will also be fondly remembered by his siblings Larry (Fran) Cartier, Randy Cartier, Cheryl (Scott) Grant, Shelley (Shane) Archibald and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Dale was predeceased by his brother Lyle Cartier, parents Emile and Joyce Cartier, grandparents and sister-in-law Pat Cartier and father-in-law Larry Stewart.

Dale and Brenda‘s family lived on an acreage by millet from 1975 - 1989 then move to Nanaimo, BC for two and a half years to work. They then moved back to Leduc in 1992 where they have lived since. Dale spent most of his career in the trucking and crane industries where he made many, many, great friends. He had such great respect for everyone he worked with and met. He ended his career this past June as a crane and rigging safety instructor.

In honour of Dale, we would ask and appreciate a donation to the Mazankowski Heart Institute in Dale‘s name, where he has been a patient since 1974.

Sending our love and heartfelt sorrow.
It was very hard this Christmas season to learn of Dale's daily struggle to win the battle and be reunited with the family he held so dear. We know he fought hard and were thankful that in his last moments with us, Brenda, Derek and Richelle were in the room with him. Dale was a great guy to spend time with and we'll cherish our many visits. His kind face and subtle laugh and smile will always be set in our memories. Rest in peace now. We will miss you.

Very sad to hear of Dale's passing. We attended grades 1-10 together. One time when we were practicing for the trackmeet, Dale was standing watching as he was not allowed to participate because of his heart murmur. He said he was going to try once and he sailed over the bar higher than any of us who had been practicing so hard. We were sorry he couldn't compete at the trackmeet as he would have very likely brought the ribbon back to our school.
Didn't see him very often however have fond memories. Thinking of you Brenda

So saddened by Dale's passing. Sincere condolences to Brenda and the family. Dale was a great lifelong friend starting in our earliest school days. He was respected and liked by all who knew him. So many fond memories; weekends at the Cartier farm in Poplar Valley, group golf trips, the early years in Fort Mac, and so many more. He will be missed by many.
