Guestbook

Uncle Carl could never leave Nebraska; he tried but always returned. Now his spirit is home where he first began. We have lost the last of our \"tribal elders\" and I expect his influence will live on in his remaining, expanding family, as well as the rolling grasslands and rippling Platte River that he loved so much.

I met Carl in the early 2000's when we started the Central NE Antique Tractor & Equipment Club, he became an early member. He was a very nice person. In fact a couple of years ago, when I was in St Paul, I stopped and visited with him for about 15 mins and we both enjoyed it. May God comfort the entire family during this time.

Throughout his long life, Uncle Carl gave so much to so many. When he married Aunt Beth he became a big brother to a little boy who had lost his father. Carl stepped into that gap and helped to shape my father into the man he is today. My family has a special love for for Carl - a kind, patriotic man who loved a good road trip and was so generous with his time and of himself. I feel so lucky to have known him. Love and peace to the Huebner family.

Uncle Carl was a true representative of the "Greatest Generation," with a lifetime of service to God, family, community, and Nation. We will always remember the times we spent with him. He will be missed.
