Carl wanted everyone to know that he truly loved every member of his and Carol’s family. He wanted to thank everyone immediate and distant who had always been there to help him and Carol. He wanted us to pass along that he will miss all of the family and friends. He said most of all he was sorry that he and Carol wouldn’t be here to see the grand children grow up. He knew they would also have wonderful families, and hoped that the beliefs he and Carol expressed continue through the family generations. He regretted that the last few years he has not been able to get around and see everyone. He loved being with family and friends, camping trips, fishing trips, and visiting with everyone.
Lastly, dad wanted us to let everyone know he enjoyed the time he served with the Sheriff’s Office at Arapahoe and Douglas County, and helping the community. To all dad’s friends and coworkers at Arapahoe County and everywhere else, we know dad truly appreciated your friendship. Dad had so many friends that he helped, or that helped him in some way, we cannot reach out to all of them to say thanks, but we know for a fact he appreciated all of you.
Dads wishes were that he didn’t want any kind of memorial service, and only wished for everyone to remember him and mom, and the good times. Our family would love to hear any memories or thoughts about your times with mom and dad. Please feel free to share them here, on Facebook, or by email and we will share them with the family.
