Karl Peter Enns passed away suddenly on Sunday, August 2, 2020 while in Minnedosa for the long weekend with family. Karl was born in Winnipeg February 3, 1965. He will be missed and remembered by his sons, Rydell and Keaton and daughter Nevada; brother Dave; brother-and-sister-in-law, Jon and Neoma and their children, Jessica (Billy), Joelle (Glenn), Caleb (Carrie); and numerous family and friends. Karl was predeceased by his parents, Henry and Margaret, and two brothers, George and Edgar.

Growing up, Karl enjoyed playing numerous sports but hockey was always his favourite, and he continued to play well into his adult years. Karl and Dave could often be seen using the garden tractor for things other than mowing. They loved playing outside no matter the weather, on snow hills, digging tunnels, snowmobiling, dirt biking, wrestling and just doing what boys do.

As Karl got older, he helped more with the farming, which led him to take up farming. Even though he switched careers to Avionics he still loved being on the farm. Once he graduated from SAIT in Calgary he went to work at Perimeter Aviation with a great crew and enjoyed his 15+ years there.

Karl was so proud of his children, Rydell, Keaton and Nevada. As each child was old enough, they were enrolled in the Minor Hockey program where Karl was honoured to help out with some coaching. They also spent time together going camping, visiting their cousins, playing mini sticks, making models and Lego creations. All four of their love of Lego meant a lot of pieces, everywhere! Karl deeply treasured his time with them. He was blessed to be surrounded by amazing friends from the Elm Creek Church and Community as well as his family.

Karl knew Jesus as his Saviour and drew on God's love to give him strength.

My sincere condolences to Karl's kids and his brother Dave. I went to school with Karl (I was one year younger) and grew up around the corner from his family farm. I have not lived in the Elm Creek area for many years; but there are lots of fond memories of youth retreats, motorcycle rides, and school. Karl was a gentle soul and loved his family and friends. He will be missed.

I was Karl’s classmate from Grade 3 to our graduation. He had a great laugh and so tolerant of my silliness! He was a great athlete and friend. He explained to me how simple motors worked (always check the spark plug) and was the first to introduce me to motorcycles. Karl was happy to be a part of class get togethers and shared stories about his kids and work. Grateful for the times we all shared.

Thinking of Karl's family today and your incredible loss.
I attended grades 1-12 with Karl. He was smart, steadfast and loyal. Whenever we had class reunions, Karl would be there. He was always a great listener and supporter. He will be dearly missed.

With sincere sympathies,
Lisa Vance (Woods)
