Carl’s passion was hunting and fishing. He enjoyed spending time in Olney with his loving wife and great friends, after retiring from Owens after 41 yrs. He was a longtime active member of the Sandy Ford Sportsman Club. Every morning he made his daily calls and snapchats to his family and friends then he was always “fixin” to get something done or “fixin” to go somewhere. The love and memories he created with his family and friends are strong and deep, they are now treasures for all to keep.
Memorials may be directed to the family of Carl Ishee.
