Carl was such a lovely human being and I was privileged to know him through my wonderful long time close friend Brenda. The service was just so touching and I learned so much about Carl that I didn’t know. How proud his family must be of having him as wife, daughter, grandsons, son in law and mother in law. God bless them all. One thing I was looking forward to was to have one of his famous chocolate martinis. Love to all the family. Kay Fox

Dear Brenda and Shannon,

Carl - what a man , what a legacy, what a life! There are no words adequate enough to describe how much he will be missed. He was a great friend, and wonderful neighbor and we always enjoyed the times we spent with him along with Brenda. Life can change so suddenly and it is such a reminder to not take our dear friends and loved ones for granted. May our God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ bless you and comfort you. May the love of family and friends and happy memories sustain you in the days to come. We know we will all be united in eternity forever and we will see Carl again. All our love and prayers for you and all the family - Al and Mary Anne Lisbona

I worked with Carl the last 15 years and it was a privilege to call him a co worker and a friend. Carl was a fine man and an integral part of the banks success. More importantly, Carl was loved deeply by everyone of his Sovereign bank family. I am sure that Carl heard “Well done, good and faithful servant.....Enter into the joy of your Master.”

Carl and I were friends for 45 years. We did everything together
with our families and other friends, everything from attending
Dallas Cowboy games to playing cards and eating at a Mexican
food restaurant on Tuesdays when the special price was $1.29,
those were the days. We didn't see each other much over the last
25 years but I will always remember our friendship and the things he did for me. See you soon Carl.

My friendship with Carl began in 1982 in the Banking Industry where I always admired his knowledge and direct insight into the art of lending. He was always a mentor and adviser that I could run deals by him and get direct honest opinions. We always enjoyed our time at Las Colinas playing golf, caddying in President Bush's Wounded Warrior tournament, talking sports and sharing stories in the 19th hole. It was an "Honor" to have him as a friend.

Carl was a great friend and long-time golfing buddy. I will greatly miss sharing with Carl our military, hunting, golfing and business experience. More recently we frequently shared the growth, development and achievements of our grandsons. Carl was very proud of and loved dearly his boys. I know they will miss him greatly as we all will.

A true friend and consummate professional who always had an encouraging word, good advice, or an epic sea story for those who needed it.

Brenda and Shannon,
I just found out about Carl's passing and I'm so sorry to hear. My sincere condolences...your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Carl was a great man, good friend and meant a great deal to me, I have always looked up to him. Carl got me in the Commercial Real Estate finance business when he hired me just out of school back in 1984 to work for him at E.F. Hutton...he was the best boss ever. Since that time Carl and I have continued to work together and stay close. We would always get together for lunch or a drink to get caught up. Carl was very good at Commercial Real Estate finance. He knew all property types as well as the legal side and was always right, but the best thing about him it that he was always a pleasure to deal with. I will greatly miss our friendship, he was always there for me when I had a question or needed any advice. Carl was the best!
John
