    Desmarais, Karl M., 69, of Orange, passed away on July 22, 2010. Born in Quebec City, Canada, he spent the last 31 years in Southern California. He was an entrepreneur and the founder of Accent Awnings Corporation. He is survived by his loving wife, Roberta; six children, Karl, Sonia, Annabel, Michael, Richard, and Robert; sisters, Mimi, Annabel, and Sylvia; and nephew, Justin. For Karl and Roberta life was a great adventure. They traveled the world together, making new stories and finding fun wherever they went. The great joy of their life was the time they spent with their 10 grandchildren, to whom they were endlessly devoted. Karl gave himself tirelessly to family and friends, ever mindful of what more he could do for the people he loved. He enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson Electra Glide with his son and close friend. His forceful and dynamic personality made him the center of many worlds, and life without him will not be the same. He was Rome and all roads led to him. A great man has passed away. A true man. He will be missed. He will never be forgotten.

    Robert Stewart
    Vice President
    Accent Awning Co., Inc.
