Carl has lived in Streetsboro since 1965, was a member of the Aurora Mennonite Church, and a veteran of the US Army. Carl was a loving husband, father and grandfather.

After retiring from his transport business, he worked at Randolph Feed and finally for many years as a greeter at Walmart in Streetsboro.
