His life at the Jersey Shore was filled with guitar playing, boating, water/jet skiing, fast cars, and boardwalk amusements. His free spirit took him many places. He loved life wherever he went!Later his careers as an EMT and journeyman/lineman flourished. Carl could “fix” anything, he was so mechanically inclined and intelligent.His selfless nature to help anyone in need will never be forgotten. Sensitively, not a pushover is resounding. If he didn’t agree, it wasn’t happening!
