He loved his God, his family, his country, and he loved you!
I met him just briefly in a Church in Venice. i felt the presence of God, when I shook his hand. I wanted to know him, his wife and family better. He lives on in his son Ron and his other children. What a blessing to meet this wonderful man.
Roxanne – I can’t believe I’m just finding out that you lost your precious husband. My heart just breaks for you. You’re right – grief sucks – but I know that God is faithful and joy DOES come in the morning!
My Sister and I knew Carol well. He was a Loving and kind Man. He was a lot like his Mother Virgie.
Carol, will be missed very much by all who knew him.

Dear Teresa,Mike,Ronald && Chris,
I just heard of your father’s passing. I am so sorry. He was such a sweet, sweet man. I will miss him terribly. I would see him just about everyday in his yard or in his truck and he would always smile and wave really big. I loved that about your Daddy. I remember going to the fair and spending the night with you all. These are such great memories for me. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God got a good one. Again, I will miss that great big smile of his and that wave ….
My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Carol was always an upbeat fellow with a good attitude and he had his priorities in order. He was a good man.
Chris, Missy, and family,
We were unable to make the service, but our hearts were with you. We will always remember your dad as a vibrant, friendly, christian man. So sorry for your loss……heaven gets sweeter all the time!
I just heard about Carol’s passing. He will be truly missed. He was always so proud of his boys and their families. I know my father would have been there if he had been able.
Dear Roxanne and family,
We feel so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved husband, father and grandfather.
We will remember him gratefully for his hospitality. When we stayed in your home we noticed the deep love you had for each other.
May the Lord be with you and comfort you in this difficult time and beyond. You will be in our prayers.
