Mr. Carl Balius was such a great guy! He made everyday at school esp in band so much fun! We learned, performed as a team-he made us be so proud! There are so many memories, such an important time in our lives-Sterling High School 1968-1971. He taught us much more than music, he taught us about life!

I later was in the choir at Riverside Methodist church where he again gave a special spirit for all the music we performed.

He was & always will be an important part of such a special time of my life. I am eternally grateful & can not wait to join him in that special performance in the sky!

My heart goes out to Julia, Bonnie & Alan-and all those cute grandchildren & great-children!! He would be so proud-like he always when he spoke of all of you!

I was just thinking of Mr Balius tonight and thought I would look him up. It saddens me that he has passed. He was a wonderful band leader and friend and served us well at Milby for many years. I graduated in 1978. Rip Mr Balius,, Sandy Blue.

Mr B was my all-time favorite teacher and advisor At Sterling High School. He was always an encourager & had my best interest in mind. I assisted him in the band room, filing music, packing his briefcase for football games, etc. He once told me, "you'll make someone a great secretary" & that became my chosen profession. Most of all, Mr. B made me laugh. I look forward to a great reunion with him in heaven.

I've often thought about "Mr. B" throughout the years. He was a truly dedicated teacher and I enjoyed my time with him at school. Band was one of my favorite classes. I'll always have fond memories of your Dad, Bonnie.
