    I didn't know Carl, but thank you for posting this new thread. My prayers and warmest thoughts to his family at this time. It sounds like he was another true Studebaker enthusiast and it's extremely sad that he passed away so tragically.

      Barnlark,

      Thanks for the thoughts. Carl was a personal friend and will be dearly missed. I find it interesting that you are the sole person to reply to this thread, yet the other thread with the sensationalist headline had many postings....sign of the times..........:-(

        Pure tragedy. Doesn't really matter what he did or didn't do. The fact is he left friends and loved ones behind. His friends and family will be in my prayers

          Truly sad for a Stude guy to go like that. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
          I know it may be wrong to say it here, but if I had to go , what better way than working on something I really enjoyed.

                    Sorry to hear of this, of course. Like most, I had probably met Carl at York but did not remember who he was upon seeing the news on the forum.

                    (Laemmle: One thing that would have generated more response would be to have put Carl's name in the thread's title. Rest in Peace is such a generic phrase that it would be more personal with a colon after the words and, then, the person's name. Too, if a search of Carl's name was ever initiated for any reason, it would pop up more readily if the name was in the thread's title.[^])

                    To wit: Rest in Peace: Carl J. Lange

                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    Ayn Rand:
                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                            Laemmie, BP makes an important point here. Only you can go back and edit the title to include Carl's name for future referencing. Please do so, as there may be many friends of his who will perhaps visit here and it would be easier for all to find.
                            Was Carl at the Lancaster Meet in September? It would be nice to see a picture of him, maybe even with a vehicle as a tribute. I may have even met him there. As some SDC & forum members will attest, I tend to go out of my way to talk to people I haven't yet met (drives my daughters nuts) and ask questions about their Studes or parts. Acquaintances today may be your friends tomorrow.

                              Yes Carl and wife Fran were at the Lancaster meet.

                              I have a picture of him at the dinner table at Damons Restaurant in York, along with the David Thibeaults a fellow named Henry and his wife Cookie who vend tools and Snap-On equip.

                              Will try to find picture and post same.
