It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Earl Edward Schwartz on Saturday, December 14th at the age of 83 years.
Earl was born on August 4, 1936, in Canwood, Saskatchewan to Beecher and Ivy Schwartz. His early years were spent on the family farm in Mont Nebo, Saskatchewan, before moving to Melfort at age nine. Earl spent most of his youth on the family farm just northwest of Melfortin the Thatch Creek District. He attended Thatch Creek Elementary School, then for high school attended both Two Rivers Bible Institute (now Nipawin Bible College) and Canadian Nazarene College, then in Red Deer.
Earl married Audrey Grant on July 4, 1958 and settled on the Ted Grant family farm while working at the Melfort Experimental Farm in Crop Analysis.During this time,the couple was blessed with three children: Judy in 1959, Laurie in 1962, and Kelly in 1966.In 1971, Earl joined Mutual Life of Canada as a salesman and eventually opened his own agency office. It was here that his love for building relationships began.
In the Fall of 1978, with Judy heading to Winnipeg and Canadian Nazarene College,Earl and Audrey and their two sons followed their hearts to Red Deer where Earl was involved in many business ventures: Mutual Life, driving truck for Guy’s Freightways, managing Western Battery, service and delivery for Guy’s Pure Water, and then settling back in at Guy’s Freightways where he finally retired in December 2018. He loved his days in the shop with Todd, the mechanics, and the drivers, and he developed numerous relationships with folks in the trucking and parts industry.
Earl’s greatest joys were his faith and his family. He leaves to remember him, his wife of 61 years, Audrey, his daughter Judy (Steve) and their children Christi (Jay) and Brett (Claire); son Laurie (Cheri) and children Kyla, Kenzie, and Kieran; and son Kelly (Jody) and children Alanna (Jordan), Adam, and Lauren; and his great-grandchildren Brady and Calder.He was predeceased by his parents Beattie and Ivy and brother David and his survived by brothers Keith, Larry (Eileen), Bernie (Louise) and sister Darlene, as well as many nieces, nephews and wonderful friends.
The family is grateful for the exceptional care and support Earl received during his final days at the Red Deer Hospice. A celebration of Earl’s life will be held at First Church of the Nazarene, 2 McVicar Street, Red Deer, Alberta, at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, December 19, 2019.
