PALATINE - A memorial service and interment for Carl Berger Gehlin, 88, of Palatine for 53 years, will be held at a future date at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery. Born May 30, 1926, in Chicago, he passed away Aug. 1, 2014, in Barrington. Carl was a World War II Army veteran, a carpenter and woodworker, and a 60-year member of Carpenters Union Local 80. Carl loved to celebrate his Swedish heritage by sharing his warm homemade glogg at gatherings with family and friends! We will miss those times along with his smile that accompanied his jokes and quick one liners! He was the son of the late Carl Gehlin and Jennie Swanson; husband of the late Nancy Rose Gehlin; father of Eric A. (Barbara) Gehlin, Kathleen A. (Scott) Lager and Susan R. (Brian) Dempsey; grandfather of Sarah R., Adam S. and Nicholas E. Lager and Andi Gehlin; and great-grandfather of Lily and Violet Lager.
