Arthur (Art) LaPorte


LAPORTE, Arthur (Art)

Art peacefully left us in his sleep September 19, 2015.

He was born August 29, 1932 and spent his childhood in Athabasca, Alberta.
During his teens Art drove snow plow, lumber loaders, and spent many years, in different places, working in the oil patch.

He married the love of his life, Carrie Otto, on June 21, 1956. Together they worked throughout the prairies until settling in Edmonton in 1967 with their two girls.
Shortly thereafter they started their own company hauling oilfield equipment. This venture continued until 1983 when they retired to enjoy family, friends and their cottage more often. Together they have had many years enjoying life to its fullest.
Art’s charismatic personality and sense of humour will be greatly missed.
He brought us all many laughs, good times, and our love for him will last forever.
Art had a great life.

No flowers please, instead if you would like to make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Art on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 11:00 am at the Richmond Park Evangelical Church at 9340 – 69 Avenue in Edmonton.

Sorry, there are no details found...
