Dear, Dear brother, you were my friend and classmate, I am proud that I had the opportunity to share with you those years gone by, you will always be loved and remembered on this site and in all of our hearts, rest in eternal sleep, Your smiling face will always be remembered.

This is a very tough one for me. My brother Carl and I were extremely close.
We went to some of the Hill Parties, on our dirt bikes, and had so much fun.
We was never voilent, just out ran the cops when they showed up.
We both worked at the chicken ranch's picking eggs etc. lots of fun!

At home he use to pin me down and tickle me to death when my dad was at work and our Mom was in the bath. So to save myself I would go into the bath with my Mom and just sit there. Gotta love our older brothers.

He was always there for my daughter Shawnti and I. Since I was a single parent he attended her sports events,plays and anything else at school or church at Loma Linda, or course with his camera. He loved to take pictures and video all that was going on. He was always there for me, no matter what!
He got a blood cancer called Multipliable Myloma, which I think came from Asbestos in construction. It is a cancer which sucks the protein from your blood and leaves your bones very thin like bird bones.
He fought it for 2 yrs with such grace, faith, positive attitude and of course his funny sense of humor. He passed away at his home in Grand Terrace with a few of us at his side, while he was taking his last breath.
His wife Marcy, son Dillon, older brother Paul, myself Janelle, Rob Sears other brother, Julie sister in law, and Minister (just happen to stop by) and the doctor next door who happen to just get home.
We had his services at Azure Hills SDA Church and I think there must of been 500-600 people there.
I have a DVD of his service at some point I will put it on the sight.

My daughter and I miss him so much!

I used to live down the street from Carl,Paul and Janellle on Hildebrand street and have very fond memories of all three of them. Carl always had such a caring heart for everyone he would meet and you could see his smile across the room. Of course if anyone ever met their parents you would understand why,their Mom & Dad were such loving caring people and I will always be thankful for how they welcomed Betty and myself into their home. I was saddened to hear of Carl's passing and will always remember what he taught me about caring for others .

You will be greatly missed Carl buy all who knew you,Irv

How can a older brother pass up the opportunity to brag about his younger brother.................

My brother Carl had more friends than I could ever imagine. Before he became ill I would visit and as we drove through Grand Terrace it seemed everyone we passed would wave or shout a loud "Hi Carl." He was very active in the Lions Club and everyone loved him.

I never heard anyone say anything bad about my dear brother. I loved him dearly and a whole community mourned his loss.

I remember the last few days when he took a turn for the worse; I was standing by his bed and told him that Janelle was flying in and that I was going to pick her up at the airport. Carl responded, "Tell her to hurry" I believe because he knew he wouldn't be with us much longer.

Sure enough shortly thereafter we were all with Carl when he took his last breath and silence fell across the room. Not a dry eye was in the room that evening and we all supported each other through the next several days.

His service was so beautiful and although the church was very large there was standing room only and several who attended had to stand outside.

Yes, we still miss him, love him and think of him every day. His wife Marcy and son Dillon are doing well and remain in Grand Terrace where they continue rebuilding their lives.

I love you brother, always did and always will, Paul
