Jules Bernard Carrier was born on Aug. 20, 1940 in Zenon Park, Sask.

The eldest son of Alphonse and Marie Carrier he was the much loved and admired brother to Denis, Paulette and Laurier.

The family moved from Saskatchewan to the Williams Lake area in 1952 where Alphonse went to work for the Chabot Brothers Sawmill and they homesteaded at the 147 Mile on Highway 97.

Jules would have been in the forestry industry for 56 years. He started at the early age of 15 when Fred Hamel started up a sawmill near their home.

Jules loved the bush and worked as a feller buncher operator for Clusko logging until he couldn’t work anymore this past summer. He had worked for Clusko, or Westline Harvesting for the past 20-plus years. In the 30-some years prior to that he worked for various companies, never once being fired, or let go. He was well respected as both an employee and co-worker by all.

Jules was also a devoted family man. An adoring husband to his wife Eileen. They would have been married for 10 years this May. And his sons, Brian, Troy, Kevin and Jay are a testament to what an amazing man he was.

Jules battle with cancer three times over the past 10 years. He fought it hard and without ever a complaint. In the end, it was pancreatic cancer that took him from us. But even at the end, he never uttered a complaint and said thank you to every and anyone who came to help him.

Jules passed away January 28, 2011.

He is remembered by his family and friends as a kind and loving husband, a devoted son, a proud and understanding father, a generous and affectionate grandpa, a supportive and adoring big brother, a hard working and loyal employee and coworker, a smiling and funny friend, and in general our everything.

As Jules would say … You Betcha.
