    I have known Carl all my life from Pennsville to Pine Island. Not only a great businessman and fisherman but a beautiful woodworker. I will miss his smile and great hugs. You are finally pain free.

    Carl was tough as nails boss and fairs as the come. I worked with him on a special project at DuPont. He handpicked me to help him. I think I made him happy with his choice. RIP Carl
