You were the best Dad a girl could ever hope to have. You taught me to change the oil and tires on my cars, taught me to hunt and said “I can give you all the advice in the World daughter, but what you choose to do with it is your business”. My heart is forever changed now that you’re gone but we’ll meet again someday and it will be whole again. I love you pop.

In 1978 Kitchell was building four new buildings for SRP at the Page power plant. Carl came to our jobsite to do a safety inspection. I was general forman and took Carl on tour of our jobsite. He came up with some risk management items that l was able to use though out my career with Kitchell. And then he went Turkey hunting up at Kaibab. Carl was a great guy and helped me make the transition from general forman to superintendent. I enjoyed working with him.

I remember Carl as quite a “fighter”. Shortly after his major heart attack, i ran into him at the gym on Camelback. He was walking on the treadmill right next to me. Very impressive that he wasn’t going to let something like a heart attack slow him down.
Ran into him several times at the office on 24th Street….on weekends. I was a lowly Project Engineer, and he was a VP. Always was very friendly and helpful to me, regardless of your position with the company.  RIP Carl.

I started at Kitchell Contractors in 1977 and I remember Carl. He was always professional as I started out a young project engineer. He made a contribution to the company and helped get us more procedural with subcontractor’s insurance and risk management in general.
