Online Condolences


  1. I am very sorry. Carl taught me how to swim at Barrington Beach in the 1960’s.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about this, lost touch with cousin Carl after my mother died in 2012 when I last saw him and his sisters Diane and Cindy at the funeral. I know how difficult it is the first Christmas after losing a loved one, so I’ll pray for Amanda, Diane, Cindy and of course aunt Irene who I’m sure is grieving terribly. Love to you all.

  3. I was so sorry to hear of your passing. I am sorry to have missed today’s service but Terry and I will say a prayer for you and may God Bless your soul,

    Please give my regards to George, John, Peter, Don, Henry, Mike, Albert, Al, Chief G, and the rest of our departed brothers and sisters in blue,

    I’ll be seeking you all someday, until then keep your head down and stay safe..

    Bob & Terry Casale
