Carl Krabill, 87, died February 27, 2018. He lived a vibrant, colorful life as a husband, dad, grandfather, artist, teacher, athlete and car lover.

He was born in East Canton, Ohio in 1930. He has degrees from Mount Union College, the Art Center College of Design and Kent State University. He spent 25 years as an art teacher in the Shaker Heights School System teaching hundreds of young people to find beauty in color and art.

Traveling extensively, he has captured the landscapes of Maine, Nantucket, Raleigh, England (Yorkshire and Devon), France, and Holland as subjects for paintings.

He leaves behind his wife, Irene, of 61 years along with his children Keith, Vanessa and Kerry and his sister Carolyn Huntsberger, along with family in the US and England. He will be missed by six grandsons Ian, Devon, Trevor, Reece, Jaden and Jeremy.

There will be a memorial service at a later date in Ohio. Condolences: RFHR.com
