SWEATT, Carl Harry

was born January 21, 1926 in Glendale, AZ and passed away August 10, 2018. He was raised in San Jose, CA where he met his wife Norma A. Chapin. They both moved to St. Petersburg in 1953 to be near her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Chapin, who owned the Asheville Radio and TV in downtown St. Petersburg.

He survived his wife who passed away in 2008 and his daughter, Sandra Sweatt Martin, who passed away in 1991. He leaves behind his other daughter, Deborah A. Herold (Charles); six grandchildren (Deborah's - Jennifer A. Schepps and David H. Herold), (Sandra's - Daniel, Joshua, Christopher and Timothy Martin), who all together provided him with 10 great-grandchildren. Carl was very proud to have been a WWII veteran, having served in the US Navy aboard the USS Cleveland in the Pacific during the height of the war, from the Solomon Islands to Tokyo, Japan when the war ended.

Carl also spent his entire career in the US Postal Service; retiring in 1984 after 28 years and moving through the ranks from a clerk to a supervisor. Carl most loved his family and his house by the lake, where he was a fixture in the picture window on a daily basis waving at all who would walk by. He lived a very full life through 92 years of age. He will be greatly missed and all in his circle of friends and family who wish him well on his journey to be with his beloved Lord, Jesus Christ.

Services will be hosted by Sorensen Funeral Home in St. Petersburg on Thursday, August 16, 2018. Funeral Service will begin at 11 am with burial to follow at Memorial Park Cemetery.
