    Lee and family– I am so sorry about the loss of Carl. I remember both of you and your young family when you lived on S.. 52 ave. I am the daughter of Milton and Dorothy Staub–the neighbors on the north side

    Carl was such a nice guy and, a really good police officer! He had such a great smile – it was a pleasure to have known him. Sincere condolences to Carl’s family.

    One of the best persons I ever knew from my time with Omaha Police.
    Even-tempered, knowledgable, smart, and with a great personality.
    The perfect cop!
    Can’t think of him without smiling.
    Rest in peace.

    Carl was a life-long friend since our teenage years. He was our best man at our wedding 64 years ago. We will miss our long time friend. We send our heartfelt condolences to Lee and their daughters and grandchildren. May he rest in peace. May God bless him.
