Carl Malcolm Folkins

Carl Malcolm Folkins was born April 30, 1944. He passed peacefully at home on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at the age of 76 years, after a hard-fought battle with cancer.

Carl was beloved husband and best friend to Sharon Turcotte; loving father to Michael (Doreen) Folkins, Jacqueline (Brent) Hamil, Carla (Eric) Kletke, and Suzanne (Paul) Babineau; stepfather to Leigh (Matt) McKinnon; proud grandfather to Lindsey, Zachary, Rachel, Joshua, Mya, Owen, Adriana, Mikayla, and Luc as well as great-grandfather to Aria, Luna and Ronan. Carl will also be missed by his siblings, Joan (Bill) Vincent, Doug (Joyce) Folkins, Gail Folkins, Bertha Folkins and Blair Folkins. Carl was predeceassed by his parents, Emerson and Doris Folkins; brother, Glen Folkins and sister-in-law, Sally Folkins.

Carl had a passion for fun, loved to entertain and have a party. Happy hour was never turned down whether at his home in Calgary or at his second home in Yuma, Arizona. Carl could tell a story like nobody else and had endless tales of adventure and mischief.

Carl was a truck driver for 46 years and proud owner/operator of CWT Carriers for 10 years. His work took him all over North America; he could talk to everyone and anyone along the way including a visit Johnny at the Cash farm in Nashville as well as having a drink in the back of a gas station with George Jones.

Carl loved live music and loved to dance, take Jeep trips to the desert, or play golf with all the wonderful friends he made throughout his life. One of Carls favorite things was R&R rye, to which he joked he was for sure not rich, but he was definitely rare.

A Celebration of Carl’s Life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Carl’s memory to the Salvation Army.
