    It is with great sadness that learn of Carl’s passing. I will forever remember him as not only a fine teacher, but one who made us laugh. Rest in peace my military brother and know that we now have the watch.

    We were sorry to see in the paper that Carl had passed away. We were South Nodaway friends, Sam in his class and Joan a year behind. We agree with the words in the obituary – “a little ornery and always with a smile.” We send condolences along with our wish you find comfort in faith, family, and friends.

    Sherry: we read of your husband’s passing in the St. Joseph paper. We are so very sorry that you are going through all this pain and sorrow. We want you to know that our thoughts and prayers are by your side for the coming days. If we can do something for you that would help, please let us know. We also are married 51 years, have two grown sons and two grandkids and live in Jefferson City, MO. We have wondered many times, as we went through Union Star on the way to Stanberry, where you were and what you were doing. You have our love, Bearcat buddy for always
