Our deepest sympathy to Mary Ann, Anne Marie and Christina and their beautiful family. We have known Carl for over 53 years when we "crashed" their wedding. Our lives intertwined again when we formed our bunco club. So many great memories as we raised our families. He will be missed.

Carl was a friend of mine during our school years. He lived about (3) houses from me. Carl and I graduated from Lew Wallace in 1958. He was an easy going guy that was liked by everyone that knew him. My deepest sympathy to the whole family. He will be missed. Chuck Gallion (El Cajon, California)

Carl was not only a great neighbor for 50 yrs of my life he was also a very dear friend. My best memory is when the 4th of July would come around he and my dad would light fire crackers off trying to out do each other. Carl would take me, Ann & Christina to the DQ and if a fire truck came down our street we would jump in his car and go find out where & what was going on. He even taught one of my dogs (Noble) to climb our fence to go into their yard for treats. I could go on with many many more. He will be deeply missed. But I know he is at peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
