My condolences to the family. I had the pleasure of meeting Carlton years ago and getting to ride with him several times throughout the many years of our participating in the Pan Ohio Hope Ride. Such a great guy. This is sad and shocking news. He will certainly be missed.
My deepest sympathy to Carl’s family. Carl was a great friend. Knowing him made life so much better. We will miss him but he will always be part of our lives
I’m so sorry for your loss! I’ve known Carlton for a long time. I’ve ridden PanOhio since 2010, and have known Carlton since he started a year after me. He was a great guy and I really got to know him.
I’m so sorry for your loss. He will be missed. Prayers
My wife, Kathleen, and I send our sympathy to Carlton’s family over their loss. Carlton was Our friend and an epic POHR family member, greatly liked and looked up to. His cheerful spirit lives on.
My thoughts and prayers are with Carl’s family in this time of need.
Jill and Amy please accept my apologies. Carl was a wonderful friend. He started at SW 2005 and over time we became good friends. He was always willing to go to a Browns game no matter how bad they were or how horrible the weather was and we must have gone to 35-40 games together. We was my bartending buddy for over 15 years at my Xmas party and we played darts well into the AM. We played plenty of golf and I finally convinced him to regrip his dad’s club’s. During the pandemic Carl taught me the proper group cycling etiquette as I wasn’t allowed to listen to music, lol.
Carl is probably organizing a volleyball team in heaven right now
Carlton helped so many at Sherwin Williams, he will certainly be missed! Prayers for his friends and family! Lori Van Fleet
Amy…It is my prayer that God will comfort you and your whole family during this sad time. May he richly bless you as you mourn, and may the light of His presence be a continual source of consolation.
Amy, I’m so sorry to hear about your father. I’m sure he was an incredible person based upon how awesome you are.
Carlton will be missed by many who remember his kindness. Carl took my sister under his wing while riding the MS150. We will always be grateful for his attention and support. Keep ‘em spinning Carlton!
I have worked with Carlton for the past several years. He was a great project leader, and manager. He was always friendly, and very pleasant man to work with. His smile, and enthusiasm are contagious.
During the peak of COVID, I spoke with him via Teams, and phone calls. I had some time to discuss mutual interests. His love for cycling was one of our mutual passions.
I just found out about his passing, and I am deeply moved. I know very little about his family, but I will be praying for your comfort as his place is empty this Holiday season.
