Carl David Carey
26 November, 1938 – 17 January, 2018
Carl Carey died peacefully in his home on January 17th, 2018 in Fairfax Station, Virginia surrounded by his family. Carl was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend.
Carl was born on November 26th, 1938 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Margaret Hamaker and Walter Carey. He grew up in Marion, Indiana and attended Purdue University for his degree of Bachelor of Science. He went on to get his degree of Master of Arts from University of Northern Colorado. After faithfully serving his country for 22 years and retiring from his Army career, Carl relocated to Northern Virginia where he met his wife of nearly 30 years, Janice Dezzutti. After marrying in 1988, Carl ran an extremely successful computer business, Tempest Products Incorporated. Carl retired again and spent his time being a hands-on dad. In retirement, he enjoyed running (and ran seven marathons in his lifetime!), golfing, and spending time with family.
Carl is survived by his wife, Janice Carey; their two children, Kylie (John) Powell and Joshua Carey; and a granddaughter Quinn Powell, and countless other loving family members and friends. He will be greatly missed.
A memorial service will take place on Monday, January 22nd at 2:00pm at Demaine Funeral Home. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Carl’s life. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that friends send donations to Disabled American Veterans (DAV) in honor of Carl. The family would also like to thank Vitas Hospice and Comfort Keepers for their care.

Carl was a good guy that loved all his kids and tried his best to be a good man. I haven’t had many people that I could call a friend but Carl was one of the few. I’ll always remember the ladder . Rest for eternity but don’t forget the red wine!.

My strongest memories of Carl are those of him as a loving and devoted father to Kylie and Josh. I see his courage, strength and sense of humor living on in them both. I know he is, and will continue to be, so very proud of them. Over the last 30 years he and Janice made many wonderful memories together and I hope those memories will provide comfort in the coming months. He was someone that I, and all who knew him, could depend on for help at a moments notice. He will be missed. He will always be remembered in our hearts.

Carl and I met at our Signal Corp basic officer training in May 1961 and immediately hit it off together. Following graduation we were both assigned to the Ordnance guided missile school. From there we spent tours together in the Defense Communications Agency in Arlington and 5th Signal Command in Germany. I consider him one of my best friends over all these years. After retirement he led me to join a communications company that he was working at, managing a major office in Arizona. He shortly moved to the company headquarters in Fairfax before he helped start up a separate company nearby. For a short time he lived around the block from me and we spent many hours enjoying playing cards and other games and touring local sites.
Carl was like a brother to me and we often helped each other out whenever there was a need. He was always eager to help and expected nothing in return. He was a true soldier with a great respect for and dedication to the United States ands its military family. It was a shock to return from a trip and hear the bad news from his son-in-law.
We all know no one will get out of here alive. But the hereafter will be forever. I intend to look you up when my time comes and our bond of friendship will continue unabated. Cheryl and I will certainly miss you until our time comes.
May God Bless Carl's soul and send a special blessing to Janice and their entire family in this time of sorrow.
