Carl was born October 1, 1938 in Greenville, SC to Ernest Cuberly and Lola Beatrice (Burns) Whitcomb. He grew up in Burlington, KS and then graduated from Waverly High School in 1958. Carl was drafted into the United States Army and served in the Korean Conflict. He married Judy Ann VanVranken on August 5, 1961 in Yates Center, KS. They have lived in Spring Hill for the last 31 years. He worked for UPS as a mechanic for 20 years while serving as a Volunteer Captain for the Spring Hill Fire Dept. Prior to this, he served on the Hoyt Fire Dept for five years. He loved fishing, hunting, and was an avid gunsmith. Most of all, Carl loved nothing more than spending time with his grandchildren and going to their activities. He will be missed by his family and friends.

Carl was preceded in death by his parents and infant brother, Jerry Whitcomb. He is survived by his wife, Judy; daughter, Julie and Bob Carlisle of Corpus Christi, TX and their children: Allison, Sean and Ryan; daughter, Virginia and Mark Whelan of Overland Park, KS and their children: Ian and Logan; daughter, Louise and Robert Bardwell of Spring Hill, KS and their children: David, Mark, Miranda, Tyler, Derek, Jordan and Courtney; three great-grandchildren and siblings: Gene and Irma Whitcomb of Greenville, SC, George and Sharon Whitcomb of Lawson, MO, Leon and Patsy Whitcomb of Grove, OK, Paul and Deborah Whitcomb of Greenville, SC, Lida and Roy Lawson of Burlington, KS and David Whitcomb of Greenville, SC
A special and heartfelt thank you to the Firefighters of Johnson County Fire District 2. The Dept. went above and beyond in their line of duty to provide aid and support, anytime, anywhere with the upmost respect. With our deepest sincerity, the Whitcomb Family.
