Karsten Frans Huth


It is with great sadness and much love we say goodbye to our beloved son and brother, Karsten Frans Huth, who battled cancer with courage until the end of his life.

He will forever be remembered by his parents, Carmen and Joerg Huth; brother, Jakob; Oma and Opa, Sylvia and Frans van Der Woning; uncle, Ramon (Pamela) van der Woning; cousins, Kyla, baby Hayden and Koehl; grandmother, Barbara Semrau; and aunt Mickie (Mike) Huth-Aldrich. There are many cherished friends who will also miss Karsten’s bright and warm smile.

He lived with kindness and a concern for others. He went to elementary school at St Ann’s, where he made some friends for life. Karsten had three high schools to call his. In Edmonton he attended FX, in Fort Mac he was at Fr. Merc and in Kamloops at Sahali. He seemed to find life long friends in each. Karsten was always part of a team. He played school and club sports, everything from volleyball to hockey, soccer to basketball. He chose lacrosse to love. He was a rattler, sun devil, apex, warrior and was so proud to sign his contract with the NLL Roughnecks. He loved being on the field or floor, he tried out for team Alberta and was proud to be a part of this team. We spent countless hours driving to and from practices, games and tournaments cheering him on.

He loved the being by the water. He would swim, body surf, hang out for hours, collecting rocks and shells. Even through the tough times he still went to the games to support his teams. He loved playing cards with friends and family; he always was doing something. He was a fighter even with the stuff he didn’t like (school) and was proud of receiving his high school diploma and driver’s license. His greatest gift was seeing and making everybody happy around him. He did everything with a smile and a thought for others. He wrote this when he relapsed: “This is the last game, the last quarter, 30 seconds left, down by two and I am not going to stop running.” It is the way he lived.

A Funeral Mass and a Celebration of Karsten’s Life will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, December 5, 2015 at Sacred Heart Cathedral, 255 Nicola St, Kamloops, BC. A casual Celebration of Karsten’s Life will also be held at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, December 9, 2015 at The Church at South Edmonton, 9908 – 67 Avenue NW, Edmonton.

In lieu of flowers an expression of sympathy may be made in Karsten Huth’s name to Ronald McDonald House Northern or Southern Alberta, or Kids with Cancer Edmonton, Alberta.

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the many doctors, nurses and staff at the Stollery Children’s Hospital and the Alberta Children’s Hospital who cared so much for Karsten during his time there.

Rest in peace sweet Karsten. You will forever be remembered for who you were and what you taught us all. I will think of you often and how your smile always made others smile too.
You didn’t deserve Cancer but you fought it bravely and you are a true hero. Love and miss you. Xo:blue_heart::heart:

Picture here are the lyrics to a song I wrote titled “Alive”. I wrote it in memory of Karsten and his beautiful soul that will forever be a part of me. For anyone that had the opportunity to be a part of this young man’s life will know the feelings expressed and the chorus especially speaks to me in that he and I shared a love for of all things, hip hop and Afroman’s “Colt 45″(Crazy Rap). It’s truly amazing how much impact a few hours with such an inspiring spirit can affect you for the rest of your days. The greatest lesson I have learned from him was to keep smiling, find a way and know that it’s all good in the end. This message I will forever carry forward and try my best to share with the rest of the world through my craft of music and through my passion for life and inspiring others.
