Robert Carl

Robert Paul Carl, 46-year resident of Riverside, CT, passed away peacefully, with his wife, and family by his side on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019. He was 90 years old.

Born in the Bronx, N.Y., he was raised by his uncle, Julius Stephen, and aunt, Evelyn Ungar. He graduated from the Pratt Institute of New York City and spent his whole working career as a loyal employee of Consolidated Edison of New York City as a civil engineer and architect.

Robert (Bob), was a dedicated, husband, father, nephew, uncle, grandfather and friend to all he touched during his time on this earth. Although quiet and reserved in nature, his powerful presence in the room was felt by all. His strong influence on his family by his actions and the morals he believed in was never more evident than in his four children and 10 grandchildren as they navigate through their own lives.

He adored his wife Carol, whom earlier this year celebrated their 60 years of marriage together. They met 66 years ago at a CYO church dance in the Bronx and have shared a wonderful life and memories together.

Bob is survived by his wife, Carol, four children, Stephen (Lauretta), Floyd (Linda), Philip (Stephanie) and Teresa (Peter), 10 Grandchildren: Gregory, Rachel, Diana, Olivia, Alex, Jackson, Logan, Allison, Austin, and Oscar.

Friends are invited on Thursday, Nov. 21 from 4 to 8 p.m. to Leo P. Gallagher & Son Funeral Home, 31 Arch St., Greenwich. A funeral mass will be held Friday, Nov. 22 at 10 a.m. at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 4 Riverside Ave., Riverside.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Shriners Children Hospital in Roberts name.
