Not sure what to say?

My condolences ~ I just heard of your passing Grandpa (that's what I always called him). You were the most sincere and genuine man. You always had a smile on your face and would light up the room with your presence. I will always cherish the times we spent together, even the times I would spend the night with you & granny and cry to go home..LOL I will miss you and I love you very much!!

Dear Mrs. Planinc,
I was so sorry to hear about Mr. Planinc. He was an outstanding gentleman in the truest since of the word. I always looked up to him for motivation. I thought he inspired all of the students he came in contact with, and certainly this one at Johnston City High School.
God Bless,
Doug and Janet Chapman

So sorry Virginia I just found out that Carl passed away... May God be with you all...R.I.P Carl

Mr Planinc- our teacher, principal and superintendent- a major force for good in our lives. We remember him as the great "encourager" who along with our parents showed his willingness to inspire us and other students to look to a higher education upon high school graduation. We recall the sincere personal interest he always showed students. He was an inspiration to us. We will remember Mr. Planinc. Thank your sir.

Carl supported our band '4 on the Floor' for many years, attending shows well into their later years(he and Virginia). God bless you, Carl. My condolences to my best buddy Pate Blewett and the family.

One of the kindest men I ever met, Godspeed Mr. Planinc!!!

Dr. Carl Planinc.....
Wonderful husband, father, grandfather, educator, pioneer in instructional television, businessman, civic leader and great friend to all.
Carl did more in one lifetime than it would take any of us to do in three.
While I know he misses his earthly family, you can be sure he is smiling down on us..... at the side of his beloved daughter Suzi.
We will miss you and think of you always.
