It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Carl Voigt, beloved husband, father, and grandfather. Carl passed away on July 22, 2023 at the North Shore Hospice after a brief stay at Lions Gate Hospital. Carl was born on June 27, 1934, in Toronto, Ontario and was the middle child of Karl and May Voigt. He grew up in Toronto with his sisters Gloria and Mary. Carl met the love of his life, Joan, in Toronto. They went on to get married and have five children, living in Toronto, California, and ultimately West Vancouver. Carl and Joan celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary last year.
Carl chose accounting as his career and pursued it with passion; he was doing spreadsheets and financial statements past his 89th birthday. Carl had a distinguished 55-year career as a Chartered Accountant. He was especially proud of being a founding partner in his accounting firm in West Vancouver.
He is survived by his sisters Gloria and Mary, as well as his three children, Deb (Darrell), Laura (Brad), and Greg (Michelle). Carl was preceded in death by Joan (2023) and his children Carolyn (1987) and Bradley (1970).
Carl was the ultimate family man. His greatest joy in life was spending time with his 12 grandchildren (Curtis, Carly, and Kaitlin Hetland; Connor, Clayton, Jacob, Quade, Ally, and Caleb Lycan; Donovan, Petra, and RB Voigt) who brought endless laughter and delight into the world.
Carl was selfless and thoughtful. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends, who remember his unwavering devotion to those he loved. Carl enjoyed a good game of bridge, a round of golf, and lunch with the boys. His legacy will live on through the countless lives he touched and the memories he created.
Rest in peace, Carl Voigt.
