Carl and I went to high school together but just a few years we would talk via Facebook. I really enjoyed talking to him and he was always cheerful. My condolences to his family and friends. Danny Turner, December 9, 2017 I'm so sorry to hear about Carl. He was my Shipmate and friend. RIP, Carl. Tracy Ford, August 24, 2017 I am so very sorry for your loss. I hope the words at Revelation 21:4 can bring you a bit of comfort at this most difficult time. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
Roni Faida, June 5, 2017 Carl was a friend and fellow corpsman with me on the USS Emory S. Land. I am a better man for knowing him, and the world is a sadder place for losing him. Rest in peace, Brother. Condolences from me and my wife Sharon to the entire family. Bob Stanton, June 1, 2017 Sheryl, we are all heartbroken for your loss.

RIP, Shipmate. We have the watch. My thoughts and prayers go out to Carl's family. Tracy, May 26, 2017 I'm so sorry for your loss. I am praying for your family during this difficult time of loss and sadness. Lillian (Irene bracket) sparks, May 26, 2017 To Sheryl and family- my thoughts and prayers to all of you. No words can express this sad time. I met Carl and Sheryl on a dive trip to Fiji, had the pleasure of another dive trip to Belize and diving on Maui too. Carl loved my dog Wally, he always asked about him, visited him in Maui and brought his favorite toy. We will miss you, Carl. Thank you for being a good friend. Barbara Torrence, May 26, 2017 You will be missed, brother. And not just by our family, but by your many friends. You won't know it but we spent a lot of time together the last week or so. You had the best of care. Love always. Dave David Anderson, May 25, 2017
