Carey Lewis Jaeger

July 16, 1958 – November 10, 2021
It is with broken hearts that we announce Carey Lewis Jaeger (owner/operator of Ellis Creek Autobody and long-time resident of Penticton) passed away on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at the Penticton Regional Hospital with his family at his side, after battling pancreatic cancer. He was always committed to serving this community and worked tirelessly for the residents of the Okanagan valley. He loved his family with everything in him, and the many adventures, escapades, traveling and learning about the world, his love for animals, and living life in general are some of the memories we will have of him to forever cherish. He had wit and great intelligence, along with a sense of humor where you couldn’t help but laugh and he was such a good sport…he would always start out with objections but would then participate and inevitably steal the show! Carey is survived by the love of his life, his wife, soulmate, and partner in crime Elizabeth (Amies), his beloved sister Barb, his sister Janice, his loving sister-in-law and friend Alison (Amies), his cousin Jackie (Sis), her husband Rob (daughters Anna, and Julia), his nieces and nephews (Patrick, Carmen, Katrina, Kristen, Karla, and their families including Shane, Mich, Isla, Kane, Audrey, Sloan, Harlow), many more great nieces and nephews, his dearest friends Edgar Schroeder and his family (Jamie, Manuela, Cynthia), Trevor Treliving, and many more extended family, and close friends too numerous to name but carried in his heart.
We would like to extend special thanks to the nurses, doctors, and all staff at the Penticton Regional Hospital (SP3) for your compassion and supreme care. We would also like to thank Shades Restaurant and your staff for your support, love, and numerous meals provided during Carey’s illness.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to https://pancreaticcancercanada.ca/ or to the Penticton Regional Hospital at https://sosmedicalfoundation.com/leaving-a-legacy/ A private family Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date. A notice will be posted in the Western Newspaper when the date for the Celebration has been established. Carey always said that Penticton was his ‘Piece of Paradise’. So now my love, you go to your next paradise, where no suffering shall be…goodnight my sweet prince, rest with the angels now for I will be there soon. I will always be your girl!
