He worried about and took care of his sister.
He enjoyed Carp Fishing at the annual St. Lawrence County tournament, rocking out to Tyrade and building custom computers. Carl was kind and pure of heart, cared about all creatures, even the smallest butterfly. He hated bullying and believed strongly that bullying prevention should be taught and practiced in every school at every age by students, teachers and administrators alike. He believed that Black Lives Mattered, that everyone deserved to be fed, clothed, sheltered, loved and protected from Corporate Greed.
He gave great hugs, loved to make others laugh, and wanted to help people any way he could. Friendship and honesty were intensely important to Carl. He wanted more than anything in the world for everyone to just “Be better people!”
