RIP Carl Staples. You will not ever be forgotten

Because of you, I have the five most precious people I love in my life.
Mary Kaye Staples Aguilar

The passion that I have for sports is due in part to your love for all athletic contests. I thank you for that.
I am so thankful that you got to spend time with our son. Like other people who met you, he developed a love for you and we are glad he got to know his Grandpa Staples. I only wish Collin had the same opportunity.
We will carry on the Staples name and try everyday to make you proud!
Love you grandpa!!
