Carman, Cecil Lloyd D.C.
Peacefully, at the Smiths Falls Hospital, on Sunday August 12, 2012, at the age of 78.
He was born in Eldorado, Ont. on Aug. 5, 1934, to the late Beryl and Lena (Sharpe) Carman. Cecil is survived by his common law wife Ruth Chapin and his children Jeffrey (Brenda), Stephen, Bradley, Richard (Marie-Josée), Trevor, Gregory, and Michelle (Brent). Also Ruth’s daughters Barb Lotan and Jenn Lotan. Proud Grandpa of Ryan, Chelsea, Joshua, Cassandra, Danielle, Sebastien, Tristan, and Hayley. Special Grandpa to Hannah and Oliver and great Grandpa to Olivier. Cecil’s sister Irma and her husband Ron Leavitt also survive him as well as their children and grandchildren. He was predeceased by his brother Raeburn and sister Doris who died in infancy.
Cecil graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1960 and after practising for a short time in Orangeville, he worked in Carleton Place and Almonte. He, along with his partner and long time friend David Hall, operated the original Almonte Nursing Home on Clinton Street. He later built and operated the new Almonte Nursing Home on Country Street. He was also a business man in Kemptville. His wit and that twinkle in his eye are already greatly missed by all those who knew and loved him.
At Cecil’s request there will be no visitation and only a private internment service. Friends are invited to join Cecil’s family for a get together to remember him at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall in Toledo, Ontario on August 19, 2012 at 2:00 PM.
Anyone wishing to make a donation in remembrance of Cecil is asked to make the donation to World Vision or to Operation Smile.
