My sincere condolences to Carl's family and friends. I was saddened to hear of his passing as I will no longer enjoy my weekly visits with him at the Town of Whitby's Operations Centre where he came looking for assistance for the Park of Reflection. I've never met a more dedicated volunteer. He was such a kind and gentle soul and it was always a pleasure assisting him in any way we could. He was so appreciative of any assistance we could provide. I will miss seeing his smiling face and the stories he shared and I am sure his presence will truly be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
May You Rest In Peace now Carl, in the Lord's Gardens, walking hand in hand with your Soulmate Paige. God Bless You.

Carl and Paige were such dear friends and we considered them our family. They have been there to celebrate our joys and sit with us in our sorrows and always willing to help others.
Carl was passionate about the Wounded Warriors and Park of Reflection and he helped me get a stone for my brother and shared stories of his time in Korean war. My husband Will would sometimes run into him there while he was riding.
Carl said he drove by our house every day, and sometimes we saw him sometimes he just let us know. We saw it as his way of watching out for us.
We had many great talks about Paige and he missed her terribly but, pushed on to the best of his ability.
I will miss Carl terribly but, find comfort knowing he has rejoined his soul mate Paige.
Sincere and deep condolences to his family.

I want to pass along my condolences to Carl's family. I first met Carl at the Park of Reflection and frequently had some great chats with him. His commitment to the Park of Reflection is admirable.

My condolences to Carl's family and to all those touched by this wonderful man. The last time I saw Carl was, fittingly, at the Wounded Warriors Park of Reflection. Carl was a caring and thoughtful man who I greatly respected. May he rest in peace.

Dale and I are deeply saddened by the news of Carl’s passing.
We had the pleasure of getting to know him after he married my Aunt Paige. He was a soft spoken, interesting gentleman, with a quick sense of humour. We enjoyed both of their company on several occasions, one being on PEI. My mother always thought he looked like Kenny Rogers, which we both agreed. Our sincere condolences to all his family, friends and loved ones. May you find comfort that he has gone home to his wife Paige.

Dear Carl! I don’t even know where to start. I am heartbroken. You were my best friend, a real gentleman, & a great friend of my family. I remember the family dinners at our house & my daughter & husband were always glad to see you. I will miss our bi-weekly get togethers at the coffee shop. I will miss our laughter & conversations. Say hi to Paige for me. I will always have you in my heart dear Carl. Love you!

 Thank you Carl for your god-given wisdom your moral support. When I first met you you were bigger then life, your stature was very intimidating but as I got to know you you spoke Softly and made people feel at ease. I came to realize it was Paige that had the teeth....lol sometimes you said nothing and only listen other times you spoke with empathy and understanding you had the gift  of that I needed to hear right at that moment. Thank you for being truthful even if it hurt, thank you for the reality check when my Pride needed it, thank you for just the conversations about absolutely nothing. I just want you to know the upmost respect  excellent role model and a true friend you were to me. You are now with your beloved Paige and doggy can't forget doggy. I want to say to the Burrill family thank you for sharing your Dad Grandfather with us, just know in your hearts! on how many people Carl's helped and changed their lives. Not goodbye Carl ...Until we meet again always in my heart.

My condolences to the Burrill family, both Carl & Paige were instrumental in my new way of living, although they may not have known. I know Carl was deviated at the loss of Paige and it showed when I talked with him. They are together now & forever. Rest in peace Carl you will be missed.
