Beloved Dzidzia Man of 11 (Renee, Michelle, Danielle, David, Kirk, Derek, Aaron, Katie, Grant, Noah, Jacob) and Great Dzidzia Man of 7 (Gabby, Emma, Aaron, Bane, Maddox, Ben, Becca, Kirk). Carl is also survived by many extended loved ones and friends all over the country.
Carl was born on November 9, 1929 in Flint, Michigan. He grew up in Detroit, MI and went to Pershing High School in Detroit. He was the President of the Student Council in his senior year as well as a member of the ROTC. He graduated in 1947 and immediately went into the U.S. Army. He served 2 terms as a Medical Technician and Shift Leader. He returned to civilian life in December of 1951. When he returned, he met and then married the love of his life Shirley in August 1953. He and Shirley raised three children in Dawn, Scott and Steven and provided the best home anyone could wish for. He worked his entire career at Chrysler. He started in the Sterling Heights Missile Plant and eventually ended up as Plant Manager in the Chemical Division at the Chemical Plant in Trenton and retired in 1988. For a person to achieve that kind of status with absolutely no college degree shows you what an outstanding and committed leader he had become. His Army training served him well!! He was an avid outdoorsman and was at his happiest when he was out on his boat fishing. Whether that was in Stokes Bay, Ontario, during the 60s - 80s or Lake St. Clair throughout his life, he was always searching for the Smallmouth Bass and Perch of Lake Huron. One year he even caught the largest Smallmouth Bass of the year in the State of Michigan!!! And when he and Shirley bought a place in Mt. Dora, Fl., he made sure it was on Lake Saunders so he could go fishing whenever he wanted!!!But when he was done with outdoor excitement, he immersed himself in family. He loved his grandkids and great grandkids, and they all loved the time spent with their Dzidzia Man!!! He couldn’t wait to get home from Florida in order to spend as much time with family as he could.
We thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for allowing us to have had him in our lives. He is no longer suffering, and he is again reunited with his Shirley Girl and Son Scott as well as many family and friends.
Carl will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
