  3. I have very fond memories of Uncle Carl visiting from Chicago when I was in my early teens. He and my dad would stay up late discussing issues of the day. Their opinions were rarely the same and some of the discussions got rather heated. I would sit upstairs secretly listening, enjoying the verbal sparring. I learned two valuable lessons: I got great ideas on how to argue and I found out you can have some pretty serious disagreements and still love and respect someone. I am sure they are together now having a discussion with slightly different perspectives. I will miss Uncle Carl’s candor and his tenacity to hold on to his ideals.

  4. As a little girl growing up, there were three people who made my world seem warm and safe and filled with promise, my grandparents and my favourite uncle. My Uncle Carl was my hero and according to my grandmother, from the time I could walk, I’d toddle behind him as fast as I could because being where he was seemed just the best place to be. Gram always said he’d grumble when I did but then would always walk just slow enough so that I could catch up. Now again he’s in the best place to be and while we’ll all miss him, I know he’ll be having a fine time checking out the view and making heaven itself just a little brighter place.

    Thanks, Carl, for everything you’ve been and are to me.

    And just in case I never told you, I really did finally forgive you for making me think that spaghetti was boiled worms.

    I have many memories of Carl, having grown up with his sons, Curtis and Greg.

    I remember marveling at Carl’s book collection and movie library as a kid. You could always count on an engaging conversation about pretty much anything. There was always the challenge of escape… He had the first VCR and computer on the block which was a technological haven for us. In his own, mostly subtle way, he had a tremendous impact on our growing up. The home enviroment Carl provided for his sons and friends of theirs was fantastic and entertaining. It was definitely the place to hang out.

    As life moved on, Carl was able to share in his sons’ family life and enjoy his wonderful grandkids. Carl has left an admirable legacy and will not be forgotten.
