Carl W. Metz Obituary
Carl Warren Metz

Born: September 1, 1931

Died: April 16, 2018

Carl Warren Metz passed away early on April 16, 2018, near his son, Eric, in Lebanon, Tennessee. Carl was born in Dover, New Jersey on September 1, 1931. He was 86 at the time of his death.

Having grown up in Rockaway and Denville, New Jersey, Carl met Helen Louise Crawford at Ashland College in Ohio, and they married and had four children. They lived in Rockaway and Randolph Township, New Jersey until moving in 1966, to Saint Charles, Illinois, near where Carl worked for the Bell Laboratories for most of his career. Carl coached youth sports and was an avid volunteer with the Optimist Club of Saint Charles, and they both attended and volunteered with Methodist churches where they lived. Later, in his own business, he designed and patented products for circuit board handling. He enjoyed designing homes for himself and friends. He loved big band music, Mustangs, and baseball. After retirement they lived in Vero Beach, Florida where they enjoyed life and celebrations with many friends, music, theatre, golf and their son Chris. Carl was outgoing; always quick with a handshake and a story or two to tell.

Left to remember Carl are his children, Scott (Jo Ann), Mark (Noreen), Eric and Chris; grandchildren, Jason (Jessica), Carla (Scott), Mandi, Ryan (Larissa), Veronica (Allan), Christopher, Becky and Ashley (Ryan); and great grandchildren, Evan, Derek, Evelyn, Maddalyn, Amina and Mateo. He was predeceased by Helen in 2014 and his only brother, Richard in 2015. He is also remembered by his sister-in-law, Marilyn; and many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held on June 16, 2018 in Evanston, IL.
