For many years Carl has been a true blessing to the School of Missionary Aviation Technology. While his love for aviation was very evident, his love for people was even more so. Carl selflessly made an effort to support the students of SMAT with food and gifts on a regular basis over the past several years. His selfless generosity and heart of service were truly reflective of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory forever, and ever!
