He was preceded in death by his wife, parents, two brothers and one sister.Carl had trucking in his blood and worked in the industry many years. He later worked at Spartan Jeep Eagle until age 87. He had many cherished friends, a kind and generous employer and friend. He was one of a kind.

He was a 32 degree mason and a member of Argenta Lodge #3, and El Kalah Temple of the Shrine. He spent many wonderful hours with his faithful friends in the Shrine Patrol riding in parades and shows.

He leaves behind his loving daughters, Carla Wheadon (Larry), Jody Florence (Roy); 12 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren. He loved the special times he had with them, fishing, at ball games, and family dinners.

"You are quite remarkable!

You take it all in stride

Your gentle disposition hides

The strength you have inside.

Your thoughts are ever secret

They are locked away and sealed

And you just keep growing better

Like the lilies of the field."

by Jack Williams
