He was a senior accounting and finance consultant who volunteered his talents to his class as treasurer and longtime member of its executive committee. He and his wife, Irene, never missed a class reunion. Son Andrew is a member of the class of 1980. Carl and Irene, a Holocaust survivor, were widely honored for their many years of service on behalf of survivors. They were active contributors to the U.S. Holocaust Museum and the Holocaust Museum of St. Petersburg, Florida. Among the organizations recognizing their dedicated volunteerism were Gulf Coast Jewish Family and Community Services and the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey team, which named Carl a community hero. Carl grew up in Manchester, New Hampshire. He was a mathematics major at Dartmouth and graduated from the Tuck School. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and received his degree with highest honors. Following service as a corporal in the U.S. Army he earned a law degree from Fordham University. He joined KPMG Peat Marwick and became a senior tax partner in the firm’s New York and Cleveland offices. He chaired the tax committee on pensions of the American Institute of CPAs. Its work led to landmark legislation—the Employee Retirement Income Security Act—that protected pensions and expanded pension coverage. He retired in 1983 following a major heart attack and settled in Florida.
