He transferred to Kirtland AFB in 1961 and remained stationed in Albuquerque where he retired as a Lt. Colonel after 22 years of service. After the military, he worked for UNM’s NMERI division and retired from that post after 26 years.
Carl was a Masonic Lodge member, a 49 year member of the KAFB choir, a Boy Scout leader and member of a hot air balloon crew chase team. He leaves behind his wife of 64 years; two sons, Steven and George; two granddaughters, Amanda and Samantha; siblings, Vera Hummel and Grace Aich; and numerous nieces and nephews.
