In Loving Memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Carl David Lind. He was born in Haney, BC, then resided in Merritt, BC until 1992. From 1992-2011 he lived in Revelstoke, Sorrento and Kitimat.
In 2011 he moved to Campbell River where he resided on his sailboat for the past 10 years until his passing. He moved many times to continue his career in forestry.
He started his career in Forestry with ML Brown Lumber Ltd. In 1983 as a skidder operator; shortly thereafter in 1985 he transitioned to a faller, this was the occupation he truly loved. He remained an active faller from 1985 until his passing.
He was well respected in his occupation as a fellow falling partner, but most commonly a bull Bucker. Carl always put the safety of his fellow employees and crew first; and his impeccable safety record of 38 years speaks for itself.
He was adventurous and quick witted and loved all forms of vehicles, and recreational vehicles especially if they went fast. He never asked for much but was always the first to lend a hand to anyone. He was strong, hard working and a man of morals and ethics.
After a hard day's work, he enjoyed his music and an occasional ice-cold Corona while socializing with his sister Carolyn and brother-in-law Al in the shop. (Lovingly referred to as Al's Cluttered Shop).
He also thoroughly enjoyed his time spent with his nephews and niece At his sister Connie's Salt Mine (landscaping in the weed patch... his words not ours). He grew very close with them during the past 5 years, and he was proud of all their accomplishments.
Carl was mechanically inclined, further enhanced from the years of teachings by his heavy-duty mechanic father, David Lind. He was a fantastic problem solver and could always MacGyver anything.
During the past 2 weeks our family got to meet many of his sailboat/marina neighbour's and they all mentioned how he helped them with mechanical sailboat issues and how much they will miss him.
Carl was predeceased by his mother Dianne Lind in 2017, and his brother Earl Lind in 1988.
He leaves behind to cherish his memories his father David Lind; sister Carolyn Lind (Al Figenshaw) and sister Connie Rauch, nephews Chris Rauch, Mike Rauch; and niece Jennifer Rauch ; and his 3 children Cody Earl Lind, Steavie Taylor Lind and Colton James Lind.
He will always be loved and sorely missed As per Carl's request there will be no service.
