It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Uncle Carl on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney at the age of 90 years.
Born on August 15, 1929 in Whitney Pier, Carl was the son of the late Adam and Louisa (Rolfe) Head.
Carl worked away in Boston and Ontario for almost twelve years before returning to Cape Breton and working at the Cove Guest Home until he retired. He attended the Presbyterian Church in Louisbourg and had a keen interest in reading and memorizing scripture.
Carl is survived by his brother, Bill (Tina); sister-in-law, Yvonne; as well as many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, Carl was predeceased by his siblings, Florence (Ches), Nancy (George), Mary (Edgar), Greta, Walter (Gladys), Rolf (Peggy), Earl (Louise), Melvin (Doris), Lillian (Billy), Clyde and four siblings in infancy, Nell, Adam, John and Cyril.

Sincere Condolences to family and friends of Carl. Thoughts and prayers, are with you

Carl will always be remembered as the “family historian” as well as the “family informer” He knew everything about everyone and always let the family know when someone was ill or deceased. Max & I will miss his calls, as he phoned at least twice a month to check on my dad,( his brother Bill) and to assure us that he prayed for us every day. His words of encouragement meant a great deal to us. I hope the Good Lord tells him that, as we know, without a doubt, that he is with the Lord He loved and lived for! Till we mean again, Carl!
My thoughts and most sincere sympathies are extended to all family members.
