  • Carl was my great uncle very kind and will be very missed I loved visiting him when he used to live in Florida with my aunt Lorena. Truly was always fun going on the pontoon boat with him. I will hold tight to the great memories made. My wishes to all of his family and loved ones.

  • So sorry to learn of tool buddy Carl. He was a good one. He will be missed by many. Carl was one of the old breed that you could get the work done, on time and still have some fun along the way. I personally will miss you. Our 683 awards banquet is in a couple of days, and it will be a function that you always attended. Condolences to all of the family. Curtis(Butch) Cutler
