    Carl always had a smile on his face and a laugh to pick you up. I enjoyed working with him. It’s been a while since I have seen him and that was my loss. I am so sorry we lost him so young. Carl was a great guy with whom to work. I’m glad I had the opportunity to get to know him and work with him. I got to work with him for about 5 years at Lockheed Martin.
