Condolence From: Karen Trapani
Condolence: Carl was a special man and held a very special place with our family. I met Carl for the first time in 1989, when he resurfaced 20 years later in Mom’s life. He was my mom’s first true love and quite frankly the longest love in her life and many attest to them being soulmates. She enjoyed her time with him and he made her happy. When they first started re-dating, I remember driving her home every Sunday from his house in AH, NJ with MY first love and first car, which was a beat up old pontiac sunbird with broken seatbelts and a broken windshied but we enjoyed seeing her happy. Many years later I got married, had kids and got divorced and Carl spent time with us throughout those years. I always invited Carl to my house for various holidays and occasions. My ex really enjoyed time with him and listening to his stories. Many people have said he was an amazing cook and I can attest. My favorite was his pork tenderloin. Was so tender and yummy and the glaze was the best part. My second favorite was his mashed potatoes - i still make them the way he made them (just not quite as good) and my third fave was his chicken cutlets - amazingly fluffy and so yummy. Two Christmases ago he came over my house and i will never forget my nephew believing he was Santa. He would say "look, Aunt Karen Santa is here, why is Santa here?". He put together the frozen big wheels for my girls from the real Santa with mom’s help! This past Christmas we invited him again. I always enjoyed buying him unique gifts- hot sauce and i even got him a 4xl harley t-shirt from Jamaica - on my cruise i had a few hours on the island of Ocho Rios and i thought of him. Why? Because he took such good care of my mom! We will always remember you Carl. Thanks for being such an important part of our lives and for captivating my mom’s heart (and keeping her busy most weekends when me and my brothers had fun - ha ha). Love you and my sincere condolences to the Apell family. Xoxo💕🙏🏻

Condolence: Carl was my soulmate. My first love, my first kiss, my heart he held captive. It is so hard to believe I will never be held in his arms again. I’ll never be able to call him when I had a problem. I’ll never hear his laugh or taste his wonderful cooking. I loved him
More than he could ever imagine. He was my warm loving caring teddy bear and I am forever grateful to have had him in my life for as long as I did. Forever my love is yours, in life and in death you will
Always be in my heart.

Condolence: We have been so fortunate to have shared so many wonderful times. We will always remember our camping adventures, the barbecues, the Match Box on 8th Ave., etc. Those were the days! Our deepest sympathies to family & friends. Rest in peace Carl.

Condolence: Like many of us, my Uncle Carl was a complicated person. He was a big man…and a man of “bigs”: big highs, big lows, big brain, big voice, big heart. He could have a really big impact on things.

But most of all for me, from about the ages of 8 to 18, he was a REALLY BIG presence in my life. And even when I went out on my own, he remained one of my best friends in the world. He chose to be a presence in my life. He stood in with me at Father-Son events. He took us camping and fishing. He fixed my car more times that I can count. He drove to Ohio to buy fireworks that made our 4th of Julys legendary. He made the best entrance every year at our house on Christmas Eve. He told me to my face when I was out of line. He also told me he loved me and was proud of me. And most of all, when I was a frightened little kid, he made me feel safe.

So I don’t know how to handle Uncle Carl not being around. And I don’t know how to make sense of what happened and why.

For my part, I am going to think that he came home Saturday after seeing his things put safely away, and and closed his eyes with peace in his mind and soul; that he knew he was ok, and that he left us without worry or fear.

Love you, man.

Condolence: Dear Family and friends,
Our thought and prayers are with you at this very sad, unexpected time.
Everyone is in a state of shock and disbelief.
There are no words.
B.C.(BIG CARL) was larger than life...with a heart of gold. His gourmet cooking skills were second to none, and oh, by the way have you had his BBQ? We will remember fondly his fireworks displays, and his endearing zest for life. Where there was a party, he was there sharing stories.
He possessed high intelligence, and a great deal of warmth. His hugs were the best.
We are fortunate to have known him, because he touched our hearts...and that is why his death is tearing us apart. We have lost a good one.
Rest in Peace, dear friend.
We will treasure our fond memories of you.
Sending warm sympathy hugs and love,
Lynn MacBeth
