The past 4 months that I have spent with him bring back 35 years of memories. The calls asking when I'm working, to meet him for a drink....... He lived life to the fullest, he hated no one and loved deeply. I am truly blessed to have him in my life. I will always love you #136.

Carl was my bus driver for many years. He was always so kind to me and I'm terribly sorry to hear of his passing. I pray that he rests peacefully in heaven watching over his beautiful family.
Amber left a message on January 17, 2017:
Grandpa was a great man. Words cannot express the joy he brought to so many lives, with his warm smile and easy going personality. He taught me so much about life, and how to enjoy it. To say he is missed doesn't quite do it . The amazing memories of him are bright, however the world is still a little less brilliant without him. Love you so much.

All the wonderful train rides at all events- All the children that experienced those train rides. Thanks so much for all you have given our Community. You never be forgotten- God Bless your family !

I remember the first time I saw the borkys express, I thought what a great idea, and a neat guy to do such a wonderfully fun thing. Anytime there was a community event in greenville with kids at it, he was there giving rides for hours on end. I wish I knew him, but even though, he left a mark on me and my family. I often think of his little train, and hope to do train rides like that someday when I retire as well.
