Carl is a 1947 graduate of Natick High School and played varsity football and Legion baseball. He was drafted and served his country proudly in the Korean Conflict. He was voted soldier of the month and was then chosen to attend Leadership School where he trained troops at Fort Dix.
After his time served, he settled down with his high school sweetheart Mary in Natick and worked at Fairway Bowling Alley where they began to raise their five children. Later on, he went on to work for United Liquors and Premium Beverage where he was well respected and consistently one of their top performing salespersons.
During his early retirement years Carl lived in Mashpee with Mary. He spent many days tending to his garden and spending time at South Cape Beach. Many days you could find him taking long walks along the ocean. He loved spending time with family and friends while enjoying barbecues on the beach. Later on, they decided to move back to Natick to be closer to their children and grandchildren.
Carl was always so kind and friendly to everyone. He had so many loving and loyal friends that could often be found sitting around his kitchen table sharing stories, laughing and sometimes crying while eating Italian food. He had an infectious smile that could light up any room and his generosity was second to none. His favorite pastime was spending time with his family and his beloved grandchildren who affectionately called him “Nono”. He was always there to support them through of all their accomplishments and milestones and was often seen cheering them on at all of their sporting events. He loved all the Boston teams especially his beloved Red Sox.
