LIDEN, Carl O. February 3, 1929 - March 21, 2010 Carl died peacefully with his family by his side. Beloved husband of Beverley for 60 years, father of Rob (Barb) and Teri (Harold) 6 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. He leaves behind two sisters and one brother. Predeceased by his parents and two brothers. Carl began as a teenager in the fishing industry and worked as an organizer for the UFAWU. He served as a Councillor for Delta, later moving on to Provincial politics where he was elected MLA for the Delta riding then appointed Minister of Transport and Communications. He was a Business Agent for Local 1070, later a Director of Medical Services for the CSWU Local 1611. He became a member of the Board of Directors of the DCU/Envision Financial from 1982 - 2001 and served as Chairperson for 8 of those years. Before his retirement he worked for The Worker's Compensation Review Board. His last 6 years were spent at Kinsmen Retirement Centre in Tsawwasssen to whom we are very grateful for their wonderful care. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Carl's memory to his favorite charities, Delta Hospital Foundation or BC Children's Hospital. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
