Sad, Sad news. Although we did not know Carl's family in Chicago, we go back many years in our relationship with Carl, in the airline community and then with the bar and restaurant we owned in St. Ann, Missouri. Carol supplied and serviced the video games and Juke Box in that business for 10 years, and then installed the Juke Box in our home after the business closed. He was an upstanding business associate who was also a close friend. He was a quiet man, but a good man. We want the family to know Carl made a difference in the lives of the people he touched. He made a difference in our lives. We are so sad he has left us. So sad.

He's probably up in Heaven showing Elvis how to nudge his own game. RIP Carl and God Bless

Words can't come close to the shock of the news last week from Carolyn, I'm glad they made it up to Chicago that last weekend, Many of my friends and family know Carl and all have been made aware of the sad, sad, news. He came from an amazing family, and I am fortunate to have known Carl and Dave. Everytime we were together I learned something from him, we helped each other through the years and I love him like a brother. He was a kind and loving husband, son, brother, and friend, I'm so sorry for your loss,
