The Spanish Navy 5th SQDN has been attending helicopter training in the SH3 simulator in Jacksonville for many years. Having Carl as our instructor was the best thing that ever could have happened to us!
He was such a great teacher and great person! I will always have fond memories of learning from Carl.
Carl, rest in peace.

To Carl's sisters Geraldine, Elizabeth and Ann Marie: Carl and I were in Flight training in Pensacola 1967-68 and were in the same flight during Carrier Qualifications in the T-28 Trojan on the Carrier USS Lexington. We roomed together in the same bachelor pad house in 1968 during Helicopter transition. He was a real competitor in basketball & tennis courts and always a true and loyal friend. In the years since I left the Naval Service I continued to communicate with Carl by email and occasional telephone conversations. We tried to get together a few times at Navy Squadron reunions but I missed the ones he attended and he missed the ones I made. From Tacoma WA it is a long drive to Jacksonville FL, so email and phone calls kept us informed. I truly regret that Carl is no longer with us and our chance to get together again will now be in another world. He loved his friends and family and was a great patriotic American and a Chrisian gentleman.

Strano 2of3: Particularly now, in light of his (for me) untimely passing, we HS-75 guys were blessed & graced to reconnect with Carl twice in the past 3 years, at squadron reunions, the most recent one in JAX, which he principally organized. Although many years had passed since the halcyon days of our “flying youth”, the same “Saviolan” light was still burning, the “joi de vivre” still in evidence, the same insouciant, arched eyebrow, mildly irritated response at every dumb, dunderheaded remark, idea etc. was still in play, undimmed!. “I” was charmed; and now clearly having moved into the sunset of our Navy life, was so looking forward to more reunions - of our special NAVY AIR FAMILY, resuscitating our OWN BAND OF BROTHERHOOD. Ironically, even though we continued to keep in touch by e-mail, and even knowing Carl was experiencing some health issues, I didn't go to GQ when he failed to respond to a few of my more recent ones. I nevertheless continued to let all that life & light seduce me into thinking that he, like me, was now at max endurance with plenty of fuel left. I should have known: Carl was all Navy, all the time: Type A, attaboy-trained, “b___s to the wall”, fly hard/play hard, max speed kind of guy.
