He was the oldest of three children. Carl grew up in Hartland, Wisconsin. He had a love of baseball from a young age and played the game into his adulthood playing in men's leagues. He liked all sports and enjoyed golf with family and friends whenever he got the chance. Carl also was a huge Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers fan. He began collecting sports memorabilia as a boy and continued throughout his life. Carl's two younger brothers looked up to him and had a close relationship with him and they remember him as what a big brother should be. Geneva was a second home to Carl and he had cherished memories made at his grandparent's farm with his Aunts, Uncles and many cousins whom he loved. Carl graduated from the University of Eau Claire in 1987. He worked as a State Farm Agent before joining Chris Schroeder Insurance in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Carl married Suzanne O'Brien Heath of Geneva, Nebraska on December 26, 1992. To them two children were born, Tanner and Emma. Carl also proudly became a step-father to Ben.

During his time at UNICO he became the Director of Marketing and later a Risk Advisor.

He absolutely loved to give WC Seminars and educate businesses on controlling their Workers Compensation costs.
