Carl was a spirited man who was loved by anyone who knew him and he never met a stranger. He was devoted to his friends and family and enjoyed spending time with them. One of his favorite avocations was spending any of his free time on the water fishing and captaining his boat "Sea Mate". He was passionate about his patients and was dedicated to making a positive impact on each of their lives. Creating wood masterpieces was a favorite hobby and he spent countless hours making keepsake pieces for friends and family.
