William Carlton "Carl" Connell, Jr.

He enjoyed school programs, football, softball and baseball games, golf tournaments and having them visit the farm. He is also survived by his mother and father, Carlton and Ella Connell; two sisters, Amy Clary and her husband David, Beverly Washburn and her husband Kent; one niece, Laura Eddings and her husband Chris, and three nephews Chase and Alex Clary, and Collin Washburn.
