After graduating from North Hollywood (Calif.) High School, he majored in politics at Princeton. A member of Campus Club, Carl roomed in Lockhart Hall with a large contingent of classmates.
At Princeton, Carl made a major contribution to the marching band — first as a clarinetist, and then becoming the drum major his senior year. He loved singing and formed a quartet called the Jolly Rogues along with three other Tigers.
In November 1962, Carl joined the Air Force and became an instructor at its Radar School. In 1967 he was discharged with the rank of major. Carl determined that he wanted to serve others in the nonprofit arena. He worked for many years in the administrative leadership of the Campfire Girls and later with the Holy Land Christian Commission, addressing surgical needs of Arab children. In the early ’90s, he discovered a keen interest in fly-fishing, and pursued this as both a vocation and avocation.
Condolences are extended to children Kathy and Carl, stepdaughters Sabrina and Samantha McEnaney, sisters Leanna Pfaff and Linda Scott, granddaughter Elizabeth, nephew Jon Scott, niece and husband Kristen and Wes Deitrick, and their daughter, Nicole.
