1938 ~ 2022

We remember Stanley “Stan” Foreman (84), who passed into Jesus’ waiting arms on June 6, 2022. Known throughout Southern Alberta as “Stan the Carpet Man”, Stan led a selfless life of love and care for others, particularly in Medicine Hat.

Stan is survived by his loving bride of 61 years, Beatrice, who together built a wonderful family of 3 sons: Daryl (Sue), Kevin (Colette), and Owen (Jaime) Foreman; 2 daughters: Colleen (Kerry) Wasilow and Carolann (Mike) Janzer. Stan’s love extends forever to his 13 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren and his surviving siblings, Ken (Jeanne) Foreman and Shirley Rush.

Stan was born in Chauvin, Alberta on April 7, 1938, and attended Canadian Bible College in Regina where he met Bea. He started his career as a pastor for many small-town churches throughout British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Montana, eventually working in the carpet industry to provide for his growing family. In 1974, he and Bea moved to Medicine Hat to join Kulpe Karpets as part owner, Partner, and General Manager. Then in 1985, he and business partner, Ken Straarup, founded Main Floor Carpets, a thriving enterprise in southeastern Alberta, where he worked and served the community for over 30 years until his retirement in 2016.

Stan attended Hillcrest Evangelical Church for the past 48 years.

We would like to thank all the staff at Masterpiece Retirement for their care and attention of Stan.
