Carl was raised on a farm near Henderson, Minnesota. After serving in the Army, he married Marjorie Korngiebel, who he met at a dance at the Marigold Ballroom. He worked in manufacturing, as an electrician and as a welder prior to serving in the ministry full-time for 6 years at a Christian family camp. He enjoyed going on mission trips to Mexico, playing musical instruments, dreaming up inventions, learning Spanish, telling jokes, and playing with the grandchildren.
Carl was a loving husband, father, grandfather and uncle. He showed God’s love to everyone who knew him. We are sure he is dancing with his beautiful bride in Heaven and having reunions with those who passed before him. He will be missed by all of his family and friends.
