He leaves behind his son, Peter Rasmussen of Worcester, MA; his mother, Virginia Rasmussen of East Brookfield, MA and sister, Birgitte Rasmussen of Hampton, NH.
Carl's great love was music which he played with his band in local venues. He was active in the Worcester musical community since his teenage years sneaking out from his childhood home in Holden to listen and play music in Wormtown (Worcester). He pursued his education attending local colleges in Worcester. He was known for a natural ability to absorb information and was well read. Carl experienced struggles through out his life that are now calmed and all who love know he is resting in peace.
A gathering of his fellow musicians, family, and friends will be planned for Sunday. His son Peter, Lisa his companion and closest friends will privately scatter his ashes in his favorite spots.
