Very sorry to hear of Karl’s passing. We worked together at Fedex in the late 90’s prior to him enlisting. He was a great guy, always willing to lend a hand in any way he could. One of my favorite memories of Karl was him driving to Panama City Beach, FL after work and then straight back just so he could watch the sun rise over the beach. RIP Karl, glad we were able to reconnect on Facebook. Thoughts & prayers to all of his family and friends.
