They started building their life together in Nashville NC where he worked on the family farm and for the Nash County school bus garage. In 1964 they moved their family to Plymouth NC where Carl was the Supervisor of Transportation for Washington County Schools until he retired in 1983. Carl was an amazing mechanic. There was nothing he couldn’t fix. He loved to work on cars, work in his garden and yard, he was a master at grilling, and in his spare time he loved to take his wife fishing. Carl was ever loyal to his family and friends. Carl was so proud of his children and grandchildren. There was no brighter smile than the one he wore while teaching his grandchildren life skills or watching them participate in various activities. While Carl held many titles in his lifetime, there was none he wore more proudly than Grandpa! He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He has left a mark on the hearts of many. Many thanks to the staff of Chatham Ridge for their excellent care. Graveside service will be held Saturday, May 8, 2021 at 2:30 PM, Mount Zion OFWB Church with Rev. Heyworth Watford officiating.
