Obituary of Carl Hazen Woodley

It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Carl Hazen Woodley at the Kings County Memorial Hospital in Montague, Prince Edward Island; on April 5th, 2022. Born on September 23rd 1942, in Tracey, New Brunswick; Carl was the son of the late Carl and Elizabeth (Nason) Woodley. In addition to being happily married for almost 57 years; and raising two sons; Carl also ran a successful business in Fredericton for 29 years (Brunswick Roofing & Sheet Metal Limited), with the help of his hard working and loyal employees. He loved the challenges of running a business; and enjoyed the connections and friendships he made. During his time in business Carl served a term as president of the Canadian Roofing Contractors Association, from 1996 to 1997. It was a special day in 2003 when Carl received a letter from the Prime Minister; congratulating him on his years in business; and saying "Only those who faced the choices and taken the risks inherent in making a business grow can fully appreciate the sense of fulfillment that comes with success". While Carl put his heart and soul into his business; he was also passionate about his family, extended family, and friends. If anyone needed something, he was there. Carl was also passionate about hobbies; and he had plenty of interests that he explored. He learned how to fly; acquired is private pilot license; and eventually shared ownership of a plane for a number of years. Photography and developing film; sailing; motorcycling; and growing grapes were also passions that he explored during his life. Family memories include summer vacations to Prince Edward Island; family reunions; birthdays; anniversaries; Christmas holidays; renovation of a camp at Harvey Lake for his family; the building of a family home; trips to Maui; snowmobiling trips; relaxing with his family after a long week of work with popcorn and a movie on a Friday night; Saturday nights with homemade beans and brown bread; sharing laughs and tears; and so much more. The past ten years were spent with his loving wife at their waterfront home located in Lower Montague, Prince Edward Island; where they made even more friends. Carl’s life was full. Carl is survived by his wife Carol (Stairs); children Dan (Jill) and Mark (Tammy); twin sister Elizabeth "Ebbie" Tracy, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, grandchildren and friends. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sister Jean Hoyt, and brothers-in-law Elwood Tracy and Harold Hoyt. A special thank you to the doctors and nurses that cared for Carl in Montague. Also, endless gratitude is felt for the friends and neighbours in Montague; who have shown the true meaning of friendship during this difficult time. The interment will follow the service at Gladstone Cemetery, Fredericton Junction, New Brunswick at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to a charity of the donor’s choice in Carl’s name would be appreciated by the family.
