Carl hired me at American Motors Corporation in Detroit around 1982.
Carl was a great boss and a lot of fun to hang out with. Genies Weinnees (sp) was one of his favorite lunch spots, He would usually drive and he included everyone.
This world needs more Carl Veach's.
May God bless you Carl.

I got to know Carl during the AMC/Chrysler integration years. He was a great host to us Canadians on that project; showing us places to eat such as 3 brothers Polish food, places to drink ( the bar with the Neil Diamond sound-alike) and even took us to a hockey game at the Olympia. Although our lifestyles didn't completely mesh, I was proud to call him my friend. In fact last year he sent me a facebook post that said, happy birthday old friend, which I was planning on returning in a few days. Know that Carl was one of the good guys of this world and when this world gets back to normal, I'm sure the old man retirees group will raise a glass in his honour.

Every time I started to write something I would tear up. Then I remembered what Carl always did and that was laugh. We coached basketball together (The Celtics) for about 14 years, and no matter what happened on that court, (bad calls, fouls, bad pass etc.), I would be the one pacing the side lines and he would just look at me, shrug his shoulders and LAUGH. I am so saddened by this huge loss. My deepest sympathies to Jeanne, Casey, Tyler and the rest of his family. I will never forget him or his laugh.

Hey there's Carl ,,, that's what I would say when I walked up to the bleachers or along the baseline of a ballgame .
Sitting with Carl was the best spot to be, he always welcomed me and just had that personality that you wanted to be around. I met Carl in the spring of 1996 when I signed my boys up for t ~ ball.
I also became a coach and competed against Carl's baseball teams throughout the coming years. I spent a lot of time with Carl from baseball meetings, spring cleanup of the fields to chalking the diamond before a game.
Carl was always a pleasure to compete against. I was fortunate to have Carl ask me to be an assistant coach at a LCN baseball tournament. He made it possible for my 2 sons to pitch against each other in one of the games when we had 2 teams in that age bracket. So many Great memories,,, I could talk for hours. More memories were also made with Carl and Jeannie up north in Canadian Lakes where we have campsites a street apart. He loved when I cooked up beer butt chicken. I will surely miss his smile , laughter and good conversation.
Thank you Carl, Jeannie, Casey and Tyler for your efforts in making our sporting events enjoyable.
Know that we love you and stay strong.
Glenn, Angela and the Snell boys,,, Kenny , Kyle & Dylan

So sorry to hear the sad news of Carl's passing. It was great to recently reconnect with him and his siblings when they came to visit us in Arizona. What a blessing to be apart of this warm a loving family! My thoughts and prayers are with you all!

I was shocked to hear of Carl's passing. I think that, for me, the thing that defined Carl was his hearty laugh. It was easy to come by, and a joy to hear. Although I had not seen him in many years, the definitive laugh of his will always resonate with me. I am so sorry for his loss at such a young age. I pray that his family's pain will be less of a burdon, as the many memories he helped create come forward and talked about.

Carl interviewed me and brought me in to work at AMC in the late 70’s. He had a larger than life personality and was a great guy to work for. We worked around the clock in Milwaukee, but still found the time to let off steam. Good times. Great memories. RIP Carl.
