Carl E. Wade Obituary
Carl E. Wade went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on July 26, 2017. He was born to Ernest and Gladys Wade on September 24, 1934. He grew up in Ruidoso, N.M. and moved to Alamogordo, N.M. where he met and married Merry Dell Pilgreen on September 24, 1959.

Carl is survived by his wife, Merry Dell, his daughter, Susan Misener and her husband, Gary, their daughters Jana and Annette. He is also survived by his son, Carl and wife Sara and their daughter, Jordan. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Ernest and Gladys Wade, his brothers, Hubert and Dale Wade, his sister, Dena Malone and his grandson, Garrett Misener.

Carl was proud to be an American and served in the United States Army. He went on to have a great career as an Instrumentation Technician at the Holloman AFB Test Track where he worked on ejection systems for aircraft such as the F-16B and the B-1 Bomber.

He enjoyed hunting, fishing and watching sports such as golf and football. He kept the faith that the Dallas Cowboys would one day win another Super Bowl.

Carl was known for his warm welcome to everyone at church where he taught 3rd and 4th grade Sunday School and served as a deacon for most of his life. He had a generous spirit and was always willing to help those in need.

There will be a Memorial for Carl on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at Hamilton O'Dell Funeral Home followed by Internment at Monte Vista Cemetery.
