Carl and I grew up in the same neighborhood near Broad Ripple, and attended IPS #84 and Broad Ripple H.S.  While it has been many years since I had last seen Carl, my memories of him are quite peasant. He lived on Carrollton and I lived on 56th Street.   His passing seems all too soon, but it highlights how quickly time passes for us all.  My sincere condolences go out to you and the entire family.

So sorry to hear of Carl's passing.
I worked with Carl at Indianapolis Power and Light during His career there. He was a good friend and a very good Man. I often thought of Him.

I am very sorry to hear about Carl's passing. I went to IPS # 84 and Broad Ripple High School with Carl. We ran around together in grade school, shooting many  hoops in the goal over the Garage. Carl certainly had many talents and was a good friend. He will be missed.
