EXCELSIOR — Clayton Daniel "Boo" Carl, 46, of 131 Iron St., Coal Township, went peacefully to join his loved ones in heaven on Monday, Aug. 13, 2012. He was surrounded by loved ones during his final days at Geisinger Medical Center.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born April 22, 1966, at Shamokin Area Community Hospital, he was a son of Clayton Lee and Norene "Renee" Carl.
He loved his family and life itself. His strong will to live began at birth and proved to be true throughout his journey of life. He went to Shamokin Area High School before beginning to work for R.A. Jones and Son, and then used that strength to work for Rosini Coal Breakers.
In July 1989, he married Pamela Broscious. Then the toughest job of all began, building his foundation of love and family values. While building that foundations due to health challenges, he took the job he enjoyed most, being "Mr. Mom" to his children, Daniel and Ashley. His foundation grew even bigger when he instilled these values into his extended children who resided with him and Pamela over the years, as well as the nieces and nephews who visited often.
He enjoyed family time, hunting, fishing, camping, riding ATVs, casino trips and setting off some of the best fireworks in Excelsior. He was an excellent cook and enjoyed making soupies. Anyone who walked into our house and sat down with him at the kitchen table could not leave without him saying "try this" and whether you liked it or not, he was not satisfied until you had at least one bite.
He is survived by his parents and his wife of 23 years, Pamela; his son, Daniel, at home; his daughter, Ashley, at home; his brothers, Robert Carl and his wife, Karen, of Coal Township, John Carl and his companion, Donna, of Shamokin; his sister, Ruthann and her husband, Robert Heffner, of Coal Township; his sister and best friend, Marie, and her companion, Mike, of Excelsior; his mother-in-law, Judy, and her husband, Butch Yeager, of Coal Township; his sisters-in-law, Angela, and her husband, James Broscious, of Excelsior, and Melissa and her husband, Shawn Bowers, of Shamokin, several very close nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents; his godson, Christopher Heffner; his father-in-law, Robert Broscious; his brother-in-law, James Broscious, and his godfather, "Liz" Long.
CARL — Clayton Daniel "Boo" Carl, 46, of 131 Iron St., Excelsior. Viewing will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, with prayers at 8:30 p.m., at the Farrow Funeral Home, Sixth and Chestnut streets, Shamokin.
