Carl Edward III, retired Flagler Co Atty, died peacefully 4/25/12 at home in Flagler Beach, FL. Born 1942 in Cincinnati, he is survived by wife Joanie Rucker Kern, sister Liz Kern, twin brother Dave Kern (Katy), 3 daughters from a marriage to Marty Kern - Leah (Josh), Caroline & Rebecca, stepchildren Lindsey Nhoung, her son Veeda, & Corey Boehm, & his faithful dog Gypsy. A great optimist, Carl was known for his entertaining stories & patriotism, & had friends from all walks of life. He attended MLK's March on Washington, served in the Peace Corps in Chile, was a Foreign Service Ofcr in Vietnam & worked with Mariel refugees as Director of Parks & Rec for the City of Miami. Adored by his wife & daughters, he was a true original, a can do guy with a big sense of adventure. Carl loved motorcycles, guns, hot rod cars, politics & world history. He earned degrees from Wabash, Harvard & U of Miami & spent most of his law career in the office of the County Atty, though he was a spirited cowboy at heart. A celebration of Carl's life will be Sun, May 20, 1PM @ the Black Cloud Saloon in Bunnell, FL. In lieu of flowers, Carl has requested that contributions be made to a local homeless shelter, food bank or SPCA. He also requested that his family and friends vote Republican, at least once, preferably for this year's Presidential election. For online condolences go to:www.craigflaglerpalms.com
