CARSON, Richard Sheridan
Source: The Edmonton Journal, May 25, 2002
April 10, 1975 - May 20, 2002 It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing in Ottawa on May 20 of our beloved son and brother, Richard Sheridan Carson of Edmonton. Richard was born April 10, 1975 in Stephenville, Newfoundland. He is survived by, and will be deeply missed, by his loving parents, Dr. Rillah Sheridan Carson and Dr. Terry Carson; sister, Sarah; brother, Dr. Michael (Tacy) Lehman of Pittsburgh; grandmothers, Evelyn Carson and Jessie Voaklander. Richard is also survived by many aunts and uncles, Lynne, Pat and Karen Sheridan, Madame Justice Donna C. Read, Sharon (Mike) Cowie, Lynne Carson, Helen (Anthony) Yates, James (Vesna) Carson, Dr. Don Voaklander (Dr. Karen Kelly), and Vanore Voaklander (Ian Hooper). Richard loved, and was loved, by his many cousins, Leonard, Jennifer (Rey), Scott (Rita), Mark (Brandy), Johanna (Randall), Megan (Simon), Philip, Barbara (Jack), Andrew (Mandy), Laura (Rob), Peter, Stephan (Louise), Julia, Ben, Leah, Erin, David, Drew, Britt, Erika, Bridget, Victoria and Elliot, as well as his beloved nephew, Spencer. He will be remembered by his good friends in Canada, Europe and Mexico. He was predeceased by grandfathers, Dr. Don Carson and Bob Voaklander; uncle, Dr. Chuck Carson; aunt, Kathie Burden and cousin, Jon Burden. Richard was a wonderfully talented young man. He was loved and respected by all who knew him for his kind heart, and compassion for the world, his keen intelligence, and his unfailing sense of humour. Richard had an enormous curiosity about people and places, and travelled widely in Europe and North America, interested in what lay beyond the next bend in the road. His love for people and their cultures was best reflected in his eclectic musical tastes, and dedication to social justice internationally. He collected both friends and music from around the world. Richard graduated from Strathcona Composite High School in 1993, and received his Bachelor of Commerce degree (with distinction) from the University of Alberta in 1999. Upon graduation, he received offers to article from three different firms of chartered accountants. However, because Richard was more attuned to language, music, culture, and community service, he chose instead to devote his energies to teaching and international work in Monterrey, Mexico, where he was a popular and successful teacher of economics and global issues at ITSEM Monterrey Tech. Unfortunately, for the past year and a half, Richard had been seriously ill with vasculitis, a rare autoimmune condition. He faced this illness with his characteristic courage, grace, and patience. At the time of his death, Richard had been accepted at two graduate schools to study international relations, and was making a choice between them, or entering the teaching profession. All who knew, cared for, and loved him will sorely miss Richard. Memorial Service to be held at St. Paul's United Church, 11526-76 Ave., Edmonton, at 3:00 p.m. Monday, May, 27, Reverend Dr. Gordon Oaks officiating. Memorial donations may be made to the Richard Sheridan Carson Scholarship Fund, c/o Department of Secondary Education, University of Alberta T6G 2G5.
