He worked for R R & K Builders for 36 years then went on to start his own business, which he was proud of. On May 5, 1973, Carl married Constance “Connie” Trimberger at St. George Catholic Church.
Carl loved going to work where he helped people, solved problems, and just loved building things. He restored a 1949 Row Crop 77 Oliver tractor. Carl and his wife motorcycled for 37 years.
