    Very Sad News! One of the biggest fans for so many of us growing up! Carl would absolutely do anything to help anyone in need at any time! This is a trait that was instilled in him by his dear parents! I surely hope that I learned a little of that from Carl as I grew up!
    So many great memories!
    Prayers to all of my dear friends in this great family!

    Sorry to lose my cousin Carl. Distance away and life’s circumstances kept me from knowing Carl, but I always heard that he was a wonderful man. I am proud of his Service to or Country as well. I wish the family peace and love. Ronnie Bottorff, son of Helen Colhour.

    So sorry to the family for your loss. I met Carl in 1960 when i started my Junior year of HS at Stewartsville. I just remember him being a very quiet, respectable man. I was in his brother, Wayne’s class and did not know Carl as well as Wayne. Sympathy to the family
