Carl was very proud of his service as an Army medic in WWII. He was assigned to a Hospital Ship in the African theater and often spoke of his many experiences crossing the ocean. He retired as a superintendent for Greggo and Ferrara Inc. after 45 years of service at the age of 77.   His greatest satisfaction in life was providing for and spending time with his family and for this we are grateful.
