There are so many fine attributes to describe Carl. He was genuine, honest, hard working, thoughtful, good natured, a friend to all who knew him.....Just an all around good guy. It was our lucky day when he became part of the HAWK TRMF team at Raytheon 3 years ago, and we will miss him very much. He is surely in Paradise this day, with the Lord. May God bless and comfort Sue and all his loving family. Karen

Our hearts are broken to know Carl has been taken from us much too soon.
He was a truly caring and wonderful person, and had a heart of gold, and filled with love.
We have not known Carl and Sue very long, but feel like they have been part of lives forever, and we feel as though they are our extended family. It was a blessing for us when they came into our lives.
A huge void, but Carl will live on forever in our prayers and in our precious memories .
Our deepest condolences are extended to Sue and the entire family.
Sincerely, Walt and Carol Trembley
