My sincere sympathies for Cindy, Stephen, Kim and Robert. Memories of moving to Edmonton from Winnipeg in 1954 and became neighbours to Thornton & Mary Kaulback enjoying 10 years of friendship.
I remember the Victoria Day wiener roast & firecrackers, tubing behind a car down back alleys in the winter,birthdays, Xmas & New Years celebrations.
My family moved a couple of times in Edmonton but still stayed in touch, even when we moved to Camrose we would alternate visits between Xmas & New Years.
I have wonderful memories of Thornton as a family man, a good husband and a big teddy bear!
Hoping your treasured memories bring comfort day by day.

When I was a young teen, the Kaulbacks ‘hired’ me to help them build their Sandy Lake cabin. I recall their outhouse was the nicest one I ever experienced.
Once when Mr. Kaulback, Steve, & me were returning in the truck. As we traveled south on Groat Road, the car next to us touched the divider and flipped on its roof. None of us could believe that the car did not hit us.
Thornton always had the cleanest garage.
He will be missed.

I will miss having conversations with Thornton. I always appreciated his patience, his ability to ignore the superficial and see things below the surface, and his ability to be not be pretentious. Thank you Thornton!
My deepest condolences to his family!

A life well lived leaves a gentle pattern on the hearts of all.
When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange. We too, have wonderful memories of being next door neighbours for many years.
Memories are a legacy of love.
Warmest thoughts are there with everyone of you.
