    Very sorry to hear of Carl’s passing. I just now found out while browsing Broussard’s obituaries; otherwise I would have attended his funeral. I first met Carl when I was a kid about 10 years old; (about 58 years ago) over at Teddy Bryant’s race car shop off Blanchette Street here in Beaumont. Carl was friendly, comical, and a lot of fun to be around. We messed with race cars for many years as Carl did as well. Once again, please accept my condolences.

    Sorry to hear of Carl’s passing. He was such a kind man and I will have fond memories of him when he would come in to visit us at the City permit office.
    May God bless his family.
