    Hearing of Carl’s passing has made my heart hurt. He was such a kind, gentle man with a smile on his face no matter how he was feeling. As a member of St. Stephen’s Church I have always looked up to Carl and Dar and have the greatest respect for them. He will be missed dearly each and every Sunday at St. Stephens by all of us!

    What a kind and gentle soul! Carl will be so missed at our morning breaks-there was nothing quite as infectious as getting him to really laugh. May he rest in peace.

    Carl was a unique friend who I will never forget. His knowledge was of such a wide variety that if anyone in the courthouse had a question we could always ask Carl, he would know. I will miss his calm personality and his smiling face across the hall. God Bless Dar and his family. Sorry I can’t be there for the funeral but will pray for you all.

    A true life-long friend.A smiling baby just home from the hospital to an all time friend who always had a smile and time to talk to you. Growing up knowing his family is a great privilege. Carl (Byron) will be sadly missed but always in my heart.

    Please pass along my condolences to Carl’s family. I read of his passing in the Daily Press this afternoon, and I wanted his family to know that I remember him fondly from St. Stephen’s church. Although I have not been in regular attendance over the last several years, I really enjoyed his sermons when I was able to catch a service. I thought he was a very eloquent speaker, and I can remember thinking that he was one of the few lecturers whom I actually “tuned into.” I will miss his intellectual musings, and I will miss him as well.

    I have known Carl for 25 years, and I surely will miss him. We worked together at the Court House together for years, plus I new Carl before that time. Carl was the most kindest, gentle person I have ever known. Always greeted you with a smile, and a good word. Always cheerful even as sick as he was. I will truly miss him.
