Passed away peacefully, on Wednesday May 14, 2014 at the age of 77. Predeceased by his parents William Archer and Grace Binger and by his beloved wife Evelyn and his sister Joy.  Proud father of Linda (Mario), Bill, Dean (Maria) and his son-in-law Geoff. Cherished grandfather to Benjamin, Christopher and Jenna Evans, Grace and Paul Archer. Dear brother-in-law of Aulda Benzies, Walter Broughton (JoAnne), uncle to Pat Stephens and Steve Stephens (Terry). Karl joined the RCN in February, 1954; he served in the North and across Canada as an operator and electronic technician in the communications research. He was commissioned in the RCAF in 1972 in aerospace engineering, served at HQ’s airbases in Ottawa, the Canadian High Commission in London, England and on sub committees at NATO HQ’s in Brussels.

I believe any success I may have achieved in life was a result of the support and encouragement of my wonderful family, friends and co-worker’s. It is my hope that I contributed to the success and achievements of others.” To all my family, military comrades, The Friday Night Gang, great gym buddies and the RS Old Timers, Thanks for a great ride and I bid you a fond farewell.
