John & I are so sorry to hear of Carl's passing.  It was so good seeing him at the reunion.  He fought the good fight and our sympathies are with Nancy and their whole beautiful family.  Better than most of us, Carl chose a simpler life and enjoyed it to the max.  May he rest in eternal peace.  Micky Keogh

I got a really nice photo of Carl at the reunion with John Beuhner, Jim Kissinger & Frank Amato.  See it in the gallery.  It's how I want to remember him; so bright & happy.   Micky

Nancy, I was saddened to hear of Carl's passing. I have great memories of "cruising " in my mother's '56 Pontiac with the group. Carl, Ric Rhoa, Bill Barr, Brian Misch, Brad Grosel and Ron Spolarich.  A dollars worth of regular , a bag of smokies from Giant Tiger and  ice cold Pepsis from Ed's Fleet Wing went a long way.She called it the "Fresh Air Taxi".

One of my favorite photos  from the 68 Lens has  Carl playing a Polish gag with Alex Wysocki !  Sadly my friends from Shoregate School  Ric Rhoa and Jim Englehart are also gone. It might have Mr Keck's class . .Ironically Carl is wear wearing a "Stash" sweater !!!  Just like in Big Chuck.   Fun times in the good ole days.

Nancy I am so very sorry to hear of Carl's passing. You and Carl had the eternal love that inspired so many of us. What I remember most is his was so genuine and warm. You'll be in my thoughts through these difficult days.
