Yesterday we wrote about a number of local people who recently passed away. We saved Carl for today. Carl was pretty much a lifelong firefighter and is remembered fondly through the fire fighting community. He enjoyed the Phillies and Eagles and we are including his obituary as well. Daywalt family you are in our thoughts and prayers.
