It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Amos Carrier, having passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family. Time is the most precious resource and although it appears infinite, it is soberly and palpably finite. Although this world was blessed with 86 long years with him, not one of us would refuse one more day or one last hour to reiterate what he meant to each of us; how much we love him so completely. Not one of us would refuse one last second to say all of those said and unsaid words; to hear his stories that he told each of us so many times over.

Amos’ soul was cut from a cloth with inherit optimism and love which fostered in him the principles of hard work, determination, and compassion that he then passed on to his family. You could never catch him without a smile, without a good story to tell or a helping hand. His good-natured personality was the reason he was able to build a career at the Belledune smelter from its inception, and along with it, lifelong friends. He was a proud husband and father, working hard to provide for his family both in material wealth but more importantly with compassion and love. His thoughts were always pre-occupied with the well-being of his family, and fiercely stood by their side thick and thin.

He often reiterated to each of us how lucky he was to have such a good life. He had the love and support his wife, Marina, and his children who doted on him right until the end. He left us peacefully but left us with an unconquerable spirit that each of us will carry for the rest of our lives.
