I remember the great fun times the three of us had when we got together. Carl was always smiling and never had a care in the world it seemed. The world was a better place while Carl lived in it and he will be missed dearly by all who knew him. Mary, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how much you two love each other. Ruth Reinoehl

Mary and Family. We are so sorry for your loss. Carl was always a pleasure to be around. Kinda ornry. He completed Mary. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Joe and Francie

Carl was a great man and I enjoyed taking care of him. Thinking of you guys ❤️

Mary, Dane and Family,

Carl was an outstanding, kind man, always willing to help others. I will greatly miss talking baseball to Carl at his man-cave on the hill, and going to Bob Evans for pancakes. He was also Trooper's best friend since 2013.

Godspeed, until we meet again.

We lived next door, and have many memories of our days with Cathy (my sister's age, and Donna (my age). We used to call him "Gump" but I don't remember why. It's sad to read about his passing, but there will always be memories of our neighbors and the fun we had together as we were growing up. Prayers for you all for comfort and peace.

Always had a smile and was a joy to be around.

We had great fun with Carl at Suntide 1 in South Padre Island. He had a great sense of humor.
He loved to take walks with his dog by his side. I think they are together again.
