Some BCC Member comments:

He was one of the first people to take me under his wing when I started in equipment.”  -Merle Cooper.

“The best golf game experience EVER!”  -Neal Brown

”We were just terrible but Karl make the experience a lot of fun!”  -Denny Shogren

“I was having problems with the production manager at Midwest Biscuit, Burlington, IA and Karl intervened and I actually was able to retain the account…he was a good guy”.  -Anonymous Member

He lived through the great depression, joined the Navy and served in the Pacific during WW11.  He joined Middleby Marshall as an oven installer in the early 50’s and worked his way up to running manufacturing and engineering.  After 30 years he started Cobblestone Ovens now located in Elk Grove Village. He sold the business to Barbara & Ed Heina and retired to Florida.  He could bring a smile to anyone wherever he went. He will be missed.
