He was preceded in death by his parents, one sister, twin grandsons and two nephews. Carl was a lifetime member of the American Motorcycle Association (AMA). He was an avid motorcyclist. He participated in several enduros; however hill climbing was his passion. He was known for his mechanical skills. He could always be found in his garage. He built stock cars and worked in the pit crew at the Peoria Speedway. He never knew a stranger. He loved to travel with his wife Maggie in their motor home. He was a great Daddy to his children and a great role model to his children and grandchildren.
