  1. I knew Karl back in the 70’s when I was a teller at First National Bank. I was just a young, green 22 year old, but he treated me with the same dignity and respect as he did the bank president. What a NICE man! See you in Heaven, Karl!

  5. Uncle Karl was a gentle giant of a man in every way. He was always eager to open his home to family and friends visiting from all over the U.S. Karl enjoyed taking us up to the mountains and showing us all the beautiful sites in his beloved Colorado. Rest in peace, Uncle Karl.

  7. My sincere sympathy to the Family and all who knew and loved this good man from Arkansas.

    Karl helped me set up my first law office and subsequent expansions. He was a quiet, kind, serious, man whose word was to be trusted. If Karl said he would do it, you could consider it done.

    Many businesses in Pueblo today owe at least a part of their success to this good man.
