Not sure what to say?

Don was more than a colleague, he was a true friend.

Mr. Carl was was of the finest teachers I ever had--I am so grateful that he ignited a lifelong love of and curiosity about history and he always challenged his students to think for themselves about the world. I loved him and I will never forget him.

took classes with Mr. C in CCHS..Now you can teach into the heavens and relex you taught us the how tos teach are children ty Your thorn always in your side lol
Class of 1985

Mr Carl, I never had you for a teacher but you were our study hall monitor & you cracked me up on numerous occasions. You had a great sense of humor. And you also garnered much respect from the students & put the fear of the devil into many. You were great, schools need more good people like you. RIP thankyou. Joe Newhouse 1974cchs

Mr. Carl was one of my most cherished teachers throughout my entire education. His wit, gruff charm, and true love of teaching his passion was never forgotten and always held as a standard for me. Thoughts and prayers for the Carl family, he was one in a million.

I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Don. I will miss our conversations, I will miss our lunches together when I came back into town, I will miss his visits to (as he called it) "Hotel Hartl" as he passed through Atlanta on his trips to Florida...but most of all - I will miss a good friend!
Kim & Jonathan - you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of his passing, I enjoyed very much American History with him at CCHS, and later years much conversation (and debating), as well as Golfing with him, I am saddened to hear the news, he will be very much missed by me.

So sorry to hear about Mr Carl - I also took classes from him (CCHS class of 72) and enjoyed it! Quite the acomplishment! Maybe if I'd had him earlier, I would have developed an interest in history before I got out of school!

I Am very saddened to hear of Mr. Carl's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I won't forget him. He was hilarious! He always made me laugh! I remember him from the ski club trying to keep everyone in check on the bus! R.I.P. Mr. Carl...You will be missed!
