Carl was a proud Vietnam Veteran and a retired Local 73 sheet metal worker. He enjoyed golfing with the guys in the summer and bowling in the winter. On weekends, he enjoyed sampling new foods at Costco with his daughter Dana and treating his son Nick to their favorite spinach pizza. Carl never missed a sporting event of Gia and Nicky's...he was their biggest fan! His most prized possessions were his children and grandchildren. Now they truly have two angels in heaven watching over them. In Lieu of Flowers, please make donation to: New Star, 1005 West End Avenue, Chicago Heights, Illinois 60411.
