He not only became one of the wealthiest men in America, but also one of the most generous. Many great things in the greater Cincinnati area bear his name. Many of his other acts of kindness were under the radar. He was affectionately known in the community as "Uncle Carl." Behind all this was a deep commitment to the Christian faith. He died at the age of 92 on Oct. 17, 2011.
Some remember he kept himself motivated by carrying with him a stack of cards with motivational or inspirational sayings printed on them. They helped motivate him, but often he would give some of them away as a blessing to others. He was a testimony to the role of faith, hope and love in the life of a human being.
