Carl and I went through PFBC Deputy Academy together in 1990. We then worked together when I came on full time and assigned to Cumberland County. Carl was a well respected, trustworthy and all around outstanding person! He will be deeply missed! Until we meet again! God Bless!!

Today I went to the LP compost to take some clippings. I missed seeing Carl throughout the summer but just thought it was the timing, I asked about Carl today and was shocked to hear of his passing. He was always a gentleman and so pleasant to talk to over the years. My Deepest Sympathy to Carl´s family. May he Rest In Peace.
