Karol Fader Aalders
On November 6, 2019 at 6:00 a.m. the world
stopped for a moment while Karol took his last breath after a long
four year battle with cancer. He never let his illness define him and
continued to live his best life. Born on August 31, 1943 in Kentville,
he was the middle child of the late Charles and Lillian (Corbett)
Aalders. Karol was a roofer for over 50 years working in Kentville for
TP Calkins, Kentville Build-Up Roofing and starting his own roofing
business in January 1977 to pursue his own ventures and to support and
provide for his family. He continued to grow the business until
retirement in July 2016. He was a man who couldn’t stop and
smell the roses, because he always wanted more roses. As much as he
worked, he always put his family first. He is survived by his wife,
Donna (MacGowan); children, Karl (Corrine), Mark, Charlie (Wanda) and
Kati (Jason); grandchildren, Nathaneal, Leah and Lilee-Mae;
great-granddaughter, Justyce; brother, Peter (Annette); sister and
brother-in-law, Ellen and Bill Boyd, who were always there for him;
several nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by
his sister, Gail Coleman; in-laws, Ralph and Thelma MacGowan.
Cremation has taken place. A celebration
of Karol’s life, with reception, will be held at 1:00 p.m.
Friday, November 15, 2019 in the White Family Funeral Home, Kentville.
