Carl received an Educational Doctorate Degree from Nova University, a Masters Degree Certificate from Bankstreet College of New York and his Bachelor and Masters Degree from the University of Pittsburgh. Most knew him as “Mr. England” from his years teaching math and science at Verona High School, 1959-1967; Principal of the Verona High School, 1967-1971; Riverview’s Middle School Principal, 1971-1981; Curriculum and Special Education Coordinator, 1981-1991 in addition to years of coaching football and basketball for said schools. The image of the American dream, Carl worked and paid his way through all of his education and built his home on 4th Street in Verona where he later watched his six grandchildren and two great grandchildren learn how to swim in his backyard pool. He fought for the less fortunate to have a better life and believed in giving everyone the dignity of work and education.
