Condolence & Memory Journal

Over many years working with Carl(and Phyllis) there were very few members who did not know the effort and work their committee put into our Fort Pitt meets and Conventions. I think Carl held every officer position in the organization at some point. Carl always did his best to represent the members and I respect and appreciated that. He will absolutely be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Phyllis and family in this time for prayers. Our deepest sympathies from Vanessa and I.

I was so sorry to hear about Carl's passing. I will miss seeing him at our TCA activities. He ran our Ft. Pitt division train meets for as long as I can remember and he did a great job. May he rest in peace.

Phyllis and family
My thoughts go out to you and your family on the death of Carl. My father was Frank LaBarbera and I remember Carl and Phyllis from many years ago. I also remember his love of trains plus occassionally meeting him with my late Aunt Fran
He was a loving man who will be missed

It has been our good fortune to be married to sisters and to share friendship with each other and with caring and understanding father/mother -in-laws. Now, we carry the good memories and the sure promise of a better future. Divine mercy is available to all and brings us consolation.
