BUGLER, Carl Alexander

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Carl Alexander Bugler on the morning of January 4, 2021.

A man who wore many hats over the years, he was a husband, a father, a grandfather, a son, a brother, a friend; a business owner, a trucker, a toastmaster, a sailor, an avid reader, a horse trainer, a taxi driver, and more; but the roles he cherished most were those of husband to Evelyn (nee Wedman) and “Donkey” to his grandchildren.

Carl was born and raised in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the eldest son of his parents Clayton and Helen (nee Stanford).  His childhood was rich with memories as he ran all over town to climb trees, fish in ponds, eat wild blueberries, go sledding, skate on Quidi Vidi Lake, and maybe make a bit of trouble if trouble didn’t find him first.  Although he left home at 16 to make his way west, Newfoundland was always the place he called home.  He met Evelyn and in 1984, his wandering soul became anchored by hers forever.

On his many journeys throughout the years, this newfie and the prairie girl he loved raised two children, Clayton and Brittney.  He created cherished experiences throughout the years.  Like the summer he and Clayton worked on his new sailboat in Nantucket; or the many road trips he took with Brittney where they spent hours philosophizing.  His granddaughter Lena remembers holding his hand while going for walks in the sunshine.  His grandson Nigel always knew where to go if he wanted a smartie.  Little Miles may not remember seeing him, but his love for playing outdoors is a clear legacy of his Donkey.

Carl is survived by his dear wife of 36 years Evelyn, their children Clayton (Kelsey Saiko), Brittney (Kyle) Pederson, and grandchildren Nigel, Lena and Miles; his loving mother Helen and his siblings Beverly (Barry) Moore, David (Connie), George (Carla), Sherry Avery (Whim Smolders), Wendy (Ken) Munroe, and Michael; and many nieces, nephews and extended family.

He is predeceased by his father Clayton, sister Linda, and other extended family members.

The family will not be holding a funeral service.  In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation can be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, or a charity of your choice.  A special thank you to Ev’s family for their years of support and care.

We would also like to thank the outstanding emergency room team at the Leduc Community Hospital for their empathetic and respectful treatment.
