Karl and I met during our Woodbadge adult Boy Scout training as part of the Bob White Patrol in the early 1980's. Over the years we sponsored several camp-o-rees and a Trade-O-Ree. We raised money designing, financially supporting and selling flaps for the local Order of the Arrow Lodge, Tarhe 292, which is part of the Tecumseh Council #439 out of Springfield, Ohio. I will miss my old friend who has gone to be with the Great Scoutmaster of all good Scouts.

Helen, I’m sorry we were so caught up in moving things around while there has still been help or I’d have come to visitation. I’m also sorry about Karl’s passing, but I know about those long term periods of health problems. Doris dropped over to talk today and told of the picture. A nice surprise!

Helen and Family,
My deepest sympathy for your loss. It has been some time sense I last talked to Karl but he was one of my favorite people in my journey of life. I worked with him at Ferno-Washington Inc. He was my professor at Wilmington College. At one point I had the opportunity to visit his beautiful home and I told him - I wanted it someday. After that he e-mailed me and said your house just cost me 600 on top soil..
My older sister also worked at Ferno with Karl and in 2005 we lost her to cancer. Karl helped so many people and will be so missed.
