Carl worked 36 1/2 years in several local mines, and he was very, very proud of his career. His last workplace was Shoal Creek Mine, where he retired in April 2009.
The three things Carl enjoyed most in life were serving God, gardening and shooting the bull with his UMWA brothers.
Carl was a wonderful loving husband, father, grandfather and brother, and was a true friend. He was something important to everyone he met. He kept and lived his faith in Jesus Christ until the very end, and he was an inspiration to everyone around him.
