Karl's positive outlook and upbeat attitude were always welcome. I know the family has many good memories to cherish because of Karl ... David Beamer
I remember Karl very fondly even though I didn't know him well. A real gentleman. Always upbeat. A great model for the new people coming up in the organization.Karl was one of the "good guys". Prayers to the family.
Sorry to hear of Karl passing. Karl was a true professional when I worked with him at Amdahl. Everybody looked up to Karl as the senior guy who knew the business, the company and had great relationships wih his accounts. A great personnality...everything was always " super fantastic" and very positive even in the tough times. God bless his family, he was a great person.
The Hartson family is sorry. We are thinking about you all.
