Carl paved the roads of Oklahoma and surrounding states with blood, sweat and tears. His commitment and sacrifice led to receiving many rewards, and the respect from his peers and a career that spanned more than 35 years. He retired as an asphalt superintendent. Carl loved and was loved by many. His quick wit and humor made him unforgettable to everyone he loved with his whole heart without judgment and he enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He was a fantastic father and surrogate father to many wayward adolescents; he was a role model to many young men. Teaching them to work hard, love hard, and play hard.
