    I just found out and am heartbroken. We became good friends in the late 70’s early 80’s. We bowled together for years.Along with my twin sister Jean, we had this close group from bowling and we hung out together all the time. I was at his and Valerie’s wedding and they came to mine. Somewhere I have a picture of us dancing at my wedding reception. As what happens too often, we lost touch a number of years ago. I thought about him often and I tried to find him online, but never could. I was thinking about him last night and googled him and found out he had passed. That is not what I expected to see. I feel horrible. I wish we had kept in contact. He was just the most caring, sweetest person you could ever meet. My condolences to his family. RIP Carlton. I love you buddy.
