To the family,
What a wonderful thing I can share is when I was out visiting on Mother’s Day weekend and I had a long visit with uncle Karl. His exact words were “well Nik... I’ve lived a great life and I’m ready to go home. Whenever he’s ready, I am ready.“
I could see it in those steel blue eyes of his that he was happy and content. I will never forget that conversation… But of course, he didn’t hear my response because he could never hear me😊
Love you uncle Karl...RIP!
My condolences you guys. Sorry I couldn’t make the service.

I'm sorry for your loss! Karl was a great Man and so fun to be around we used to visit for hours talking about hunting and About different rifles. I'm going to miss him so much It's not going to be the same without him, he made me laugh a lot and used to tease me about my Harley Davidson Road King if I didn't bring it with me he would say it's probably a good thing because he was going to go for a ride as soon as I got in the woods!lol My grandson Hunter was heartbroken also because he was with me a lot when we had our visits, May the Lord give you all a Peace of mind that only he can give. Amen

Beth, Vanessa and Ken,
Papa Smurf truly made the world a better place. He was quite the character, and I have never met a person so smart, so funny, and so kind. He had a huge heart and a kind and gentle face that made him the favorite of so many. I will forever cherish the many years that we spent together as friends.I will miss him terribly. I hope you are very proud to have a grandpa/ dad just like him because he truly is one in a million.
I know I can’t make your pain go away, but I want you to know I’m here with a shoulder or an ear or anything else you may need. We love you all .
Love ,Nathalie
RIP Papa Smurf 💜

I meet Karl about 50 years ago. We hit it off right away from the beginning. We were inseparable. We spent most weekends together. We would even eat breakfast off the goodie wagon at work.
We would talk for several hours on how to solve the world problems and even if we disagreed we respected each other’s options.
He was the closest person I had to a brother., and best friend I’ll ever have.

Karl was my brother in law he will be greatly missed. I remember when I was just a child if something was said to me that hurt my feelings he would always come and talk to me which left me feeling better. Such a kind man. So sorry we moved away and lost touch. My prayers are for you and your boys. God bless

Karl was a great buddy of mine and he always had some wisdom to share and laugh about. I was grateful to be able to make him laugh out loud, even when he was having a really tough day. I am truly going to miss him, but I will always be able to hear his laugh and his talking guns with me. All of my condolences to Karl's family.
Goodbye, my friend, I will see you at the rifle range in Heaven!!!

Mark and I will never forget Karl.
I loved his special way to make you smile.
He was fun to go camping with, and shooting with.
Our daughters were close to him too. Lori I remember had a hermit crab for a pet she went to show it to Karl and the crab made a running move toward Karl and I never saw Karl move so fast. He was standing on the sofa. Alls he said was that’s a cute animal but I don’t think I care to see him anymore. We were laughing so hard we could hardly move.
He loved to tell me about animals he saw, because he knew how much I loved them as much as he did.
We love how much he loved his boys., and how proud he was of them. Family was everything to him.

Karl was one of my Dad’s very best friends. My whole childhood is full of memories of the many fishing, camping and riding four wheelers trips. I loved the stories and memories my dad and Karl would sure for hours. My sister Lori and I loved Karl very much. I will miss him.
