Carl was a great friend to me and my late husband Bert, for many years. He was a great man, and made wonderful candy. Carl will be sadly missed. God Bless his family.

Carl was a nice guy and when we were young had a lot of fun together playing slips. And in later years we met frequently at Schnadig plant. He was always an easy going gentleman and I will miss him.
