Carl was very proud to have served in the United States Air Force, and never forgot his time there, nor the men he served with.
Carl was an electrical engineer where he worked for Keifer Electric. Carl was not much of an official joiner, but he never failed to use his time and resources to help whenever he saw a need. He did enjoy traveling with his wife Mary. He could fix anything and build anything, he was always working in his workshop when he was at home.
Carl was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle who loved and cherished his family and friends.
He gave every month to his favorite charities, but the one we would like to thank and honor now is the group of people who tried so hard to help him in his final minutes. Memorial contributions may be made to the Chillicothe Community Firefighter's Association, 217 W. Chestnut St., Chillicothe, IL 61523
