Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Violet (Stroup) Carl; his sister, Mary Elizabeth Donavan; and brothers Frantz Carl and Charles Carl.

He is survived by his brother-in-law, William Stewart of Keyser, WV; and his sister-in-law, Almeda (Pete) Stroup, of Pasadena, MD, several close nieces and nephews, including Debra (Stewart) Shears, and husband Gary of North East, MD; Mark Stewart, and wife Pam of Morgantown, WV; Scott Stewart and Sherri of Ranson, WV; Kay Klovstad, and husband Jack of Pasadena, MD: Otis Stroup, and wife Karen of Catonsville, MD; Glenda Jones and husband William (Rocky) of Baltimore; Sandy Kaufman, and husband Chris of Baltimore; Dick Easton of Cumberland, MD; and David Carl; as well as many other great-nieces and nephews.
