Carl, 74, went to be with his Lord on Tuesday August 25th, 2020. Carl was born to Carl A. and Jean Reed on January 13, 1946 in Poteau, Oklahoma. Carl’s family moved to CA in 1950 where he grew up. In school, Carl strived for excellence in all subjects. He was an avid & excellent baseball player. Carl graduated from Davis High School in Davis, California.

After high school, Carl went on to sell cars and later worked for Diamond National Lumber Company until he moved back to Oklahoma in 1971. While in California he also joined a volunteer police force. In 1971 Carl met the love of his life, Donna Ann Massey, the very first day he moved back to Poteau, OK. They met at church. The two were married June 19, 1971 and made a home in Poteau, Oklahoma. Later they lived in Chickasha, OK, then Lawton, OK, before moving to Oklahoma City, OK. They were blessed with 2 Children - Charity Ann and Carl Anthony “Tony” and Carl made sure his family had everything they needed to feel safe, loved and cared for.

Carl attended Cameron University in Lawton, OK where he earned his Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice. Carl served as Patrolman on the Poteau Police Department 1971-1972, a Grady County Sheriff's Deputy 1972- 1974 and joined the Lawton Police Department, in 1975, where he served as a Patrolman and later a Detective for 23 years until his retirement in 1997. Following his retirement, Carl went on to work for the Oklahoma Attorney General's Office for 21 years as Special Agent in Charge. Altogether Carl spent 48 years in law enforcement and was proud of that achievement. Carl was a member of the Fraternal Order of Police for many years while on the Lawton Police force.

Carl was a family man and loved his wife and children dearly. He was devoted to them and made sure they knew how much he cared about them. He made sure his family took a nice vacation every year. Carl and his wife Donna were longtime members at Capitol Hill Assembly of God in OKC. Even after moving out to Sulphur, they made the drive to be with their church family for services and church activities.

Carl was an outdoorsman in all aspects. He enjoyed fishing and making trips out to the lake and he also enjoyed golfing as often as he could. Carl and Donna loved traveling in their Motorhome along with their friends. Although he had plenty of hobbies, his family really was his favorite of all. He enjoyed being a husband, Daddy and PawPaw and nothing could replace the joy he felt when he spent time together with them all.

Carl touched many lives during his time on this earth. His presence will be deeply missed but rest assured he has a big smile on his face in Heaven with his Lord and Savior.
