CHADWICK, Earl Raymond

May 14, 1926 – Toronto, ON
June 25, 2013 – Calgary, AB

Earl passed away peacefully at the Santuari Hospice in Calgary AB on Tuesday, June 25, 2013, at the age of 87 years, after a brief battle with cancer.

He was born in Toronto, Ontario, one of seven children, and is survived by his sister Mary (Jack) of Janetville, Ontario and several nieces and nephews. Earl proudly served in the Royal Canadian Navy on the HMCS Bowmanville from 1943-1946 and moved to Calgary in 1953 to play professional soccer. He spent over 25 years as the Rural Circulation Manager for the Calgary Albertan newspaper (now Calgary Sun) based in Edmonton and Calgary before transferring to Red Deer. His working career ended as the Circulation Manager of the Red Deer Adviser. In his earlier years Earl became involved in minor sports, particularly hockey where his expertise as a manager and administrator benefitted countless young people. He played an important role in the formation of the Red Deer Athletic Association and was chosen “Sportsman of the Year” in 1970 in recognition of his contributions. Later on Earl focused his energies to the Red Deer Legion organizing events and serving on various committees including the Executive Committee. In October 2012, Earl was awarded The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal for years of dedicated service. His slogan was simple, “I tried”, and he will be fondly remembered by his many friends.

    I wanted to express my condolences to Earl’s family. I have known Earl for many years. We worked together at the Adviser in Red Deer and I often spoke with him in Sylvan Lake where we bothed live.
    Earl was a kind man with a big heart. He was such a gentle soul. You rarely meet someone as thoughtful and kind as Earl. It was an honour to have known him.
    Again, my condolences to his family and friens.

    What can I say Chad? You were an important part of my life. Without you and Mac during my childhood years of playing hockey at Capital Hill, it would not have been half the childhood that I still remember. Although we only saw each other once a year for lunch in Red Deer it was always a special occasion for me. May you rest in peace Chad.
