Joseph Lionel Carmen

March 4, 1935 - December 5, 2012


The community of Procter is sad to announce the passing of Joseph “Lionel” Carmen on December 6th, 2012 at the age of 77 years.

Born in Quebec March 4, 1935 and raised in an orphanage until the age of 14.

Lionel taught himself to read, write and speak English. He worked on ships in the Panama Canal until eventually making his way back to Canada and across to the west coast, where he settled in Procter around 1972. He worked for CP Rail happily for years, and when he retired he enjoyed numerous trips to Australia for months at a time.

Lionel was a shy, but happy man and a very hard worker. Even though he went thru life with no family, he lived a full life with lots of amazing experiences. He was a wonderful storyteller and he will be dearly missed by his friends and neighbours.

Rest in Peace Lionel.
