Carl Arne Hultman was born on December 5, 1932 in Peru, Illinois. He passed away on March 16, 2020 in Dallas, Texas at the age of 87. He earned his Bachelor’s degree and went on to receive his Master’s degree in Mathematics from North Texas State University. Carl proudly served his country in the U.S. Navy, and then worked in the then emerging main frame computer business principally for Univac before working for other main frame end users, then ran his own yogurt shop in the Plaza of the Americas in downtown Dallas.
Carl possessed a brilliant mind. An avid and highly skilled contract bridge player, Carl was a Gold Grand Master of long standing. He excelled at anything to do with numbers or odds, and assessing how to play was Carl’s forte. Carl was gregarious with a sharp wit and quick on the uptake. His kind nature drew people to him, and he always made friends easily. Carl was also an avid sports fan of all of Dallas’ professional teams.
