ASHENHURST, Robert Carl
(April 5, 1918-March 8, 2008)
Carl left us just before he celebrated his 90th birthday. Predeceased by his loving and devoted wife, Rita (née THRASHER) and by his treasured daughter, Jane (Charlie), his passing has left a hole in the hearts of his son John and his wife Brooke MILLS of Surrey, British Columbia, his daughter Lani and her husband Maurice KENNY, of Stratford, and his son Jim and his wife Lila, of Burlington. Carl is predeceased by his sister, Isabel (GREENWOOD) and her husband Al, and by his brother Robert (Bert) and his wife Thelma. Carl will be sorely missed by his grandchildren, Erin ASHENHURST, Corinn SMITH and her husband Paul, along with their daughters Hayleigh and Makenna, and by his grand_son, Rob. To his nieces and nephews, his great-nieces and nephews and their children, Carl represented a wise, generous, humourous and kind 'head of the clan' and he will be long grieved. Carl started life in Goodwood, in Uxbridge Township, Ontario and worked his first paid job at the age of 7, weeding carrots for $0.10 an hour. He was a gifted athlete, excelling particularly in hockey and lacrosse. He started working as a bookkeeper in New Brunswick at the age of 19 and worked his way up through the mining industry to top executive positions in mines such as Heath Steele Mines, Mattagami Lake Mines, Stanley Uranium and Noranda Mines. During this time he helped to raise his family and became a Chartered Accountant. He ended his employment with Noranda as Vice President, Finance. After retiring for a year or so, Carl then started working on the financing of the Blackdome Mine in British Columbia. As President and Chief Executive Officer of Blackdome Mine, he and his team built and brought the gold mine into full production in record time, a culmination of all that he had garnered in his 40+ years in the mining industry of Canada. Carl had a wide circle of close Friends and loved a game of golf, a game of cards and especially a long chin-wag. Most of all Carl loved his family both related and extended. He leaves behind many precious lessons and we absorbed those lessons by his example. Work hard. Play harder. Love hardest. Our sincere thanks to the staff on Kent at Billings Court Manor who eased his journey to the end. Visitation at Smith's Funeral Home, 485 Brant Street, (one block north of City Hall) Burlington (905-632-3333) on Wednesday from 3-5 and 7-9 p.m., where Funeral Service will be held Thursday, March 13, 2008, at 11: 00 a.m. Interment Springcreek Cemetery, Mississauga. In lieu of flowers donations can be sent to the Alzheimer Society. www.smithsfh.com
