Tell us about your loved one.
Carl was a loving, caring and compassionate Son, Brother and Father. If you needed a place to stay he never turned anyone away. He loved the simple things in life, he was not materialistic at all. He had a deep love for his family and never left without saying he loved you. He had a heart of gold. He is missed by all that knew him.
