Michael Carl

December 31, 1973 — January 7, 2023

Michael Guy Carl, age 49 of Watertown, passed peacefully into the arms of his Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, January 7, 2023, just before noon at Marquardt Health Center surrounded by family and friends. He succumbed to an aggressive brain cancer after having the first tumor removed in June of 2017.

Michael was born in Towson, Maryland in the early morning hours of December 31, 1973. He lived with his parents for the first couple of years in Hartford County Maryland before the family moved to Bellbrook, Ohio (4 yrs.) then to Low Point, Illinois (4 yrs.) and on to Alton, Illinois (8 yrs.), and finally moving to Watertown in August 1990, and graduated from Watertown High School in 1992. He then attended Maranatha Baptist Bible College (Maranatha University) earning a degree in Elementary Education and taught third grade in Schaumburg, Illinois for several years. Michael moved to Decatur, Illinois where he worked for AT&T as a customer service representative and became a Foster Parent before moving home in 2017 due to increasing seizures caused by the tumor. Michael had been active in a church in both Schaumburg and Decatur, Illinois and was a member of River Valley Alliance Church where he served in the AWANA children's program.

Michael is survived by his parents, Maynard G and Diana M. Carl of Watertown; an older sister Rebecca L.
