He loved nature and being outdoors. Some of his family’s greatest time spent together were camping in Prichard, hiking Tekoa Mountain, and days spent fishing on the river. He enjoyed playing and watching all kinds of sports. Go Cougs! Karl was extremely affectionate and an avid dog lover. He will always be remembered for his generous heart and sense of humor.
