Pat Cartwright Obituary

Sadly, the family of Mr. Pat “Gunfighter” Cartwright announces his passing on Sunday, April 16th, 2023, at the age of 79 years. He passed peacefully, surrounded by his family at the Edson Hospital.

Pat Vincent Cartwright “Gunfighter” was born October 21st, 1943, in Fort Assiniboine, Alberta.

Pat went to NAIT and became a millwright. He started his career as a millwright working for Amoco at the Windfall Plant in 1972. Pat moved to Edson in 1990 and began working at the Edson Pine Creek Plant. He retired from Amoco at the age of 65. He worked for Total Oilfield Services until he was 72 years old.

Pat coached his sons when they were in minor hockey and enjoyed coaching women’s fastball. He loved watching his sons and grandsons play hockey, as well as watching the local hockey games.
Pat grew up in Fort Assinibione and lived in Swan Hills, Whitecourt, and Edson. He was a hardworking, skilled, smart, dedicated, loyal employee. He also drove the Amoco employee bus for years. Pat loved to trouble shoot and fix things. Pat enjoyed woodworking and building anything from scratch, refinishing furniture – he also enjoyed puzzles of all kinds.

Those who knew him best realized that under that rough and tumble exterior there was a humble, kind, caring, loyal, loving gentleman and was your biggest supporter.

He had a dry sense of humor, if he gave you a hard time, roasting you, it was because he liked you. Dad and Julia loved to roast each other and would do so on a daily basis. It was funny listening to them.

Pat liked to be a wallflower and observe. He was one of the best people to ask for advice. Pat learned so much from watching and doing. He would help you analyze your dilemma from every angle. You definitely wanted to hear what he had to say and draw from his knowledge and experience.

Pat is survived by his common law wife Julia Newell and his sons Troy (Katrina) and Travis (Nikki). His grandsons, Cory, Vince, Dustin, Levi, and Branden, as well as his great granddaughters Aurora and Nova. Pat was also survived by his sisters, Levis and Mazie.

Pat was predeceased by his parents Zaney and Ellsworth Cartwright and his brothers Jim, Lester, Roy, Howard, and Sam.

Pats inurnment will be held at the Fort Assiniboine Cemetery with the date and time to be determined.
