Carl was blessed with numerous grandchildren, great (and great great) grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Carl was a Ceres resident. He was a United States Veteran serving his country proudly through the Army where he would valiantly serve in the Korean War. He worked in the construction industry for over 40 years. A true craftsman, Carl would design and build anything he set his mind to. He kept his yard immaculate and was ever so proud of his lush and bountiful vegetable and fruit gardens which he shared generously with family and neighbors. Over the years, Carl raised pigeons and became an avid pigeon flyer.
He held his faith close to his heart and was devoted to Shepherd’s Chapel. He loved life and his family dearly and felt so blessed to always have them near. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father and grandfather. He will be deeply missed.
