Carl was a lifelong resident of Newark. He graduated from Essex Catholic HS where his continued dedication to the wrestling program spanned 4 decades. He loved music, the company of friends, Disney, his dog Maxwell and helping students especially athletes. He founded the Maxwell Sunfrost Foundation which was dedicated to spreading happiness and understanding as well as scholarships for Irvington students. Carl loved living in North Newark where he touched many lives. He felt rich as he lived in a small carriage house. Carl counted his blessings as he walked Maxwell in Branch Brook Park. He leaves behind a family of loving friends. His last move, he made without the help of friends. A happy heart was his only possession. He now lives in the house of the Lord where itís ok to smoke outside. God bless you, Carl.
