He attended Godley High School graduating in 1951 and served in the US Army during the Korean Conflict- 1952-1954. He was in construction then operated a dairy farm for 26 years. He loved fishing, especially striper fishing and travelled many states pursing his hobby. On November 16, 1956, he eloped with June Abbott to Weatherford; they celebrated 63 years of marriage. "Mac" as most everyone called him, had a contagious spirit and lived life to the fullest. He loved his family dearly. He was a hard worker, loved his cows, farming, fishing and playing poker. After suffering a massive stroke 7 years ago, his family surrounded him with love and devotion.

Carl is survived by his wife June of Godley; one daughter Patti and husband David of Burleson; 2 sons Steve and Kevin of Godley; brother Cecil McLaughlin;2 grandsons Clayton and wife Jessica Richardson and Patrick and wife Kate Richardson of Benbrook; granddaughter Emma of Godley; special little ones are Colt, Hagen, Hazely, Harmony, Corbyn and Ellie. He was preceded in death by his parents; 2 sisters Louise and Lucille; 3 brothers J.W. (Pete), Billy and Fred.

Thanks to staff of Huguley Nursing Home for their dedicated care.

Carl loved parties-the bigger the better- and he lived life to the fullest. He had friends and seldom met a stranger.
