To Carl's Family: Our sincerest sympathy to all of your family. Always enjoyed seeing Carl at picnics, dances, etc. Lots of great memories. Our dad, Marty Traiteur, was just a little older than him (born in 1929). I know they all hung around together in their early years. Loved seeing all of the photos as well. Lots of memories of Jess and Till!

I worked many years with Carl. He was one of the best salesman working with my dad, Clint. He was great to work with and had the respect of the customers. They knew Carl was going to treat them well. He and my dad worked long hours in those days. It was nothing to work a 50 to 60+ work week. The Traiteur family was always thought of like family and well respected. I still have the desk weight Carl had made in Korea for my dad. May he rest in peace. Jim
