Carl started his career in the fishing industry at a young age where he worked for much of his life. He was an avid card player and especially enjoyed crib, poker, and 45’s. Carl loved all animals, often feeding wild critters from his hand. He enjoyed sports, never missing a curling tournament or a Toronto Blue Jays game and enjoyed bowling in many leagues and tournaments. Carl spent much of his time with his family, playing cards, watching sports or discussing stories from years ago. He would often recount the trouble that he and his friends got into or the funny things his family said and did.
Besides his parents, Carl was predeceased by brothers Perry and Gary and his special friend Marion.
