Carl was born in Rochester, NY on November 17, 1924. He was a WWII Navy veteran who served in Australia and the Philippines. He met and married Marilyn in 1951, and retired from Eastman Kodak Company as a machinist in 1983. Carl enjoyed retirement, first having a cabin near Keuka Lake and then moving to Beverly Hills, FL for several years to escape the Rochester winters. They moved back to Hilton, NY to be near friends and family. Carl enjoyed his family, particularly being a grandparent. He loved woodworking and made many treasured gifts. Until the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, Carl enjoyed his dog, Max, and taking care of his house and yard. He always loved music and had a huge collection that he brought with him to Cottage Grove.
