Ugh. EmojiEmoji I was in touch with him genealogy, as (I had been trying to find his fathers obit years back), connected to him via his Roeth/Fessler/Peterseim. After he send me stuff, found out was also Kreider connected, then discovered more, also Overholser/Studebaker. He was a 4th cousin. His cousin, Janel Hutchinson, had remembered her granddad (married to Roeth sister of Carlon's father's mother), gave Carlon a tie he wore for rest of his life. Carlon already lost his wife, and brother in law, Larry Hasting few years ago: Deep sympathy to all his family. ' Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. Psalm 116:15. Plant a new tree', is my words of wisdom.

I am so deeply sorry and sad to see that Carlon has passed! He was one of the kindest, most sincere folks I have ever had the pleasure of working with at Steelcase. He had such a great sense of humor and equal amount of compassion for his fellow workers! My heartfelt sympathy to Gaye and all of the family! May God Bless you and comfort you all as only He can do, my prayers are with you all! Yvonne Powers

It has been many years since I worked with Carlon but I recall clearly his good understanding, judgement and advice on both engineering issues and in dealing with people. He knew both pain and joy. May the Lord bless you and keep you close and give you strength.

I am saddened to hear of Carlon's passing and my condolences to you, Gaye, and to your entire family. I worked closely with Carlon for many years at Steelcase and appreciated his friendship and the solid engineering direction he was always willing to provide.

Carlon was the leader who interviewed me for an engineering job at Steelcase, which began my 25 year career with the company. Carlon was a great manager and friend. Sorry to hear of his passing, he will be missed! -Dave Battey, recently retired Scoutmaster, BSA Troop 202

So sorry to hear of Carlon's passing. He hired me into Steelcase and was a wonderful manager for the first few years of my Steelcase career. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
