Otto Christian Carlbeck

November 22, 2019
Our beloved Otto Christian Carlbeck, age 98, passed away November 22, 2019. Truly a classy, intelligent, kind, thoughtful, selfless man who carefully parsed every word and loved sharing a simple, dignified life with his beloved wife Edna and loving daughter Melanie. His endless patience with his grandson Geoff, who struggled with health issues, was admirable – never rushing challenging conversations about hockey or any topic.
And he could dance! The cruise ships and the hotels on Waikiki enjoyed his talent, providing him with free drinks to ensure his ongoing presence. He was also an elegant skated in earlier years. His refined organizational skills are evidenced by the exacting files he left even with advanced illness.
His children Dianne, Melanie and Brent (Cindy); granddaughter Ashley (Jamie); grandson Geoff, who predeceased him; and great-grandson Alexander have enjoyed the benefits of his knowledge, generosity, and love.
A private family gathering is scheduled. Donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
