Carl was everything a great friend could be. A mentor, confidant, and fellow spiritual seeker. Fishing buddy and great conversationalist. He was so kind to me when I came around. I will miss you Pal and see you down the road of happy destiny.

My sincere condolences on the passing of Carl. He was a class act and has imprinted many great memories of all his caring ways towards others. He has helped many with issues and always knew how to make people see the brighter side of life. God bless you Carl.

Carl gave me a honda accord and a job in 1993 in Summit NJ. Every time I asked how I could repay him , he would smile and say pass it on. to a new person when U get a better car . Lost touch since I moved to California , he said his dad was from out here , and some day he would visit. So sorry his journey here ended before he could do that
