Carl was a native to Chelsea, where he was born & raised. He was educated at St. Rose Elementary School & then later attended Chelsea High School. Following high school, Carl joined the United States National Guard, something he was very proud of. Carl worked various jobs throughout his life. His passion was always his music. He was very talented whether it was singing, playing the drums and writing songs. His favorite part of his career was performing especially with his acapella group. They would perform all over the North Shore. Carl was working for Butler Express Services at Boston’s Logan Airport, where he was fueling aircrafts. He did this for many years, until his health declined due to his cardiac decompensation.
