FREELAND, Edward Carl - After a brief illness, Carl passed away on Saturday, January 13, at the Kingston General Hospital. Predeceased by Audrey, his beloved wife of 67 years and his son Timothy, then 5. Raised on a small family farm in Winchester ON, Carl delivered milk by horse and carriage or sleigh in winter, and was recently amazed by the internet, twitter, instagram and the future of the world. Carl excelled after conscripting into the Canadian Armed Forces. His proficiency in typing resulted in his assignment to what would become the Canadian Security Establishment. He would serve over 65 years in CSE, enjoying his posting in Cheltenam, U.K and travels around the world. He raised his family in Manotick, ON, enjoying extensive time outdoors together. He and Audrey retired at the Mill near Sharbot Lake and later in Bath. Proud father of his surviving sons, Michael (Tessa) Yellowknife, NWT, Steven, Ladysmith, B.C, and Andrew (Jeannie) Vernon, B.C, grandfather of Erin (Robin) Yellowknife/Ottawa and Aven-Lee (Joe) Whitehorse, Yukon and great-grandfather of Uma, Kai and Hunt-Fraser. Carl was also predeceased by brothers Ron, Harry, Earl, Reg and Doug. A memorial service in honour of Carl will be held in the “Chapel on the Corner”, ROBERT J. REID AND SONS FUNERAL HOME 309 Johnson St. Kingston on Wednesday January 31 at 11a.m., reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to the heart and stroke foundation would be appreciated. He lived fully, remaining in his house with the care of his sons until his passing. Our thanks goes out the frequent paramedics from Napanee, the emergency staff at the Napanee and KGH hospitals and close friends and neighbours in Bath and especially our dear Linda.

Carl was not only a patient at Bath Dental Centre, he and Audrey both touched our hearts, always a smile, and a story, his thoughtfulness will always be remembered from his recent trip to the NWT. When he brought me back a beautiful mug. I will think of him every morning when I have my tea. So saddened by his passing
Sincere Sympathies
