I will miss Carl. He was such a generous human being and a font of knowledge about all manner of things. He was deeply committed to the care and welfare of bees and enthusiastically shared the knowledge he gleaned from a lifetime of beekeeping. I will miss his big smile and genuine pleasure whenever I stopped by to see him, whether to get a queen or to pick up a nuc, or just to say Hi!
He loved home baked desserts and I made it a point to bring him cookies, brownies or bread when I stopped by just to see his eyes light up with delight. He always made time to share what he knew and I was always greeted with a warm smile and hug. Usually there was someone else visiting and enjoying his company. He was an open-hearted, loving human being and we are all richer for having known him.
Carl was a person of great, and kind spirit. I loved seeing him at SABA and Betterbee events, he was always friendly and eager to share his knowledge. Life seemed a great adventure for him. So pleased to have known him.
