    I worked with Carl at o’Reilly. He was so fun to work with and such a kind and caring man. My condolences to the family.

    Carl was a complex man, and I am so glad to have met him. His wicked sense of humor, joy for life, and solid work ethic were things I envied.

    Though not a part of his family, I lived next to them, and from the beginning Carl and his family took me in and we became very good friends.

    I would occasionally see him at my work, and it was always nice talking to him and catching up. I could always tell he genuinely cared, and I will miss that.

    Carl assisted Hallcon during the CV 19 pandemic by laminating all of our vehicle mask and safety policy briefings that were attached to the front dash In all of our Kansas City vans we are very proud to know Carl
