He was a member of Epsilon Pi Tau International Honor Society and Theta Alpha Phi National Honorary Dramatic Fraternity. Carl served as a private in the Army with the majority of his time spent in Korea.
For 33 years, Carl was an industrial arts teacher and vocational director at Hononegah High School teaching thousands of students in woodworking, graphic arts and other vocational skills. For several years he designed and built the sets for the high school’s theatrical productions. Carl was an excellent craftsman having built much of the furniture in his children’s homes. He loved to fish at “the lake” in Wisconsin, always had a book and a gimlet in hand, and was a lifelong Packer fan. He enjoyed travelling on several cruises, bus trips, class trips and family vacations from coast to coast throughout his life. He was a life member of the Rockton Lions Club.
