Carl spent most of his working years after the war working at Bergstrom's/Town & Country Service in Owen, later becoming a co-owner. He continued as service manager until his retirement in 1984. During his spare time he enjoyed hunting, fishing, spending time with his family, and giving generously of his time to help others. Carl was a member of St. John's Lutheran Church in Withee.
