Robert Earl Conn

December 11, 1923 – March 3, 2017

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Earl who died peacefully in Langley BC at the age of 93, the last of his generation in our family. Dad/Earl had a long and healthy life with just a few bumps the past couple of years. He was fortunate to maintain his independence and was still driving his sporty red Cadillac right up to the end.

He will be greatly missed by Shirley, his dear friend & loving wife of 10 years, son Terry, daughter-in-law Gay, grandsons Carson & Tanner, as well as Shirley’s family Trish, Shawn, Sienna & Gunnar. Dad/Earl was predeceased by his beloved, first wife of 59 years Anne, grandson Clay, brothers Harvey, Ivor, Elwood, and sisters Faye, & Marjorie.

Earl was born in Vancouver and spent much of his childhood on the move in the Prairies with his family, returning to Port Moody in 1964, then finally residing in Langley for the past 25 years.

Earl was a kind, gentle, friendly and generous man who was respected by all he met. He took great joy in his time spent with family and friends enjoying the simple pleasures of being together. He led by example and had a strong work ethic that influenced others around him. After returning from his service to the war effort he worked with the Singer Sewing Machine company for most of his adult life, and held a district managers position before retiring.

Earl will be remembered by all, as he positively touched the lives of everyone he met. He will be greatly missed.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday March 18, 1:00 PM at the clubhouse, Glenwood Village Estates, 21746 – 52nd Avenue, Langley.

Expressions of sympathy can be made below.

    Terry, Gay, and family,
    Just wanted you to know that I found your written tribute to your dad/father in law, just so lovely. Even though I did not know him, I can see in the photo, such kindness
    in his eyes.
    You will miss him greatly, but I am hoping you find some comfort knowing that he is being embraced by all those loved ones who passed ahead of him.

    Take care,
    Joanne

    I am sorry for your families loss. I was never near the west coast but attended many Singer meetings at the coast with Earl and many of his friends. Most were held at 558 Granville in downtown Vancouver and we all shared a great brotherhood as salespeople, managers and eventually dealers.Earl was my senior by 19 years so I learned a lot from him. My father had been with Singer since the mid 30s and knew Earl as well
