Carl was a gentle, kindhearted soul. Our families shared many happy times together over the years. We cherish our many memories. Our hearts and prayers are with you all during this sad and difficult time. With love and sympathy, Jeff and Patty (Begley) Smith
Carl and my mom (Ernestine Hankins Runyon) were very close. I loved hearing stories of their antics. When we were first married and moved to MI, we always stopped at Carl and Viola’s before we went to OH to visit my parents. Such gracious hospitality. As the kids got older, it got difficult to make the extra stop. When we made a long trip to Florida, we stopped to see Carl and his “girls.” Blessed to have had him our life.
Uncle Carl was a good man. Always good to me. He also has one survived brother Wilmer bogar of hardy ky. RIP uncle carl
