To the families of Carl, just wanted you to know how well liked he was. I always enjoyed our talks at the deli and when I saw him in Walmart. I am sure he will be greatly missed by all, and he will be missed by those who were lucky enough to have talked to him even for just a few minutes on a shopping day. He was good man.

Our deepest sympathy to all of Carl's family & friends. He was a great boss, a good friend & a truly wonderful man. I loved him & will miss him. My trips to Wal-Mart haven't been the same without him there.

Kathy & Pete Meleason

To the Stasyszyn Family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Your Dad was a special man who always saw the best in people. Although we moved from Carlisle more than 25 years ago, the wonderful memories we have of your Dad will always be with us. Two in particular -- his convincing the Carlisle Penn State Booster Club to do a 150 Raffle to provide a scholarship for PSU students. The Club still uses that raffle to raise funds for the Club to help students from the area attend PSU. The other memory is all the times we went to the restaurant with our baby daughter, Katie. Carl and the waitresses would come by and sit and talk with us as we enjoyed our meal. More than once Katie would take a trip around the restaurant with ""Uncle Carl" to see the other people. May you have many fond memories to share and enjoy. God's Blessings and Peace be with you in this time of sorrow.

Barb and Jack Weller

To Rose Cramer and Family,

Know that you have our heart felt sympathy in the loss of your father. We pray God's presence gives you peace and comfort in knowing to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord! As you live to live again, you will see your father again in Heaven. A place where here's no more weeping, pain or cares of this world be be left behind. Psalmist David says 121:1-2 "Lift up my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth"!

Dear Coach Joe,

I just learned of the recent passing of your father, and I'm so deeply sorry. Having lost my own Dad in 2009, I have a slight inkling of what you and your family are enduring.

Simple words cannot provide the solace and comfort you need right now, but at the very least, please know that you and your Dad's friends and entire family are in my thoughts and prayers.

With my heartfelt condolences...

Kate Mullen

You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Aunt Elzy Ditzler

RIP Carl. A good man with a beautiful heart, whose kind words and smile were appreciated.  He will be missed! I knew him from the Locker Room and then at Walmart.
