Carl and his wife Lynda moved to Northampton from the Boston area with four young children in 1976 for him to start a new job at Kollmorgen (now L3Harris) as a Senior Technical Writer. They still love it here and still feel the compassion that struck them when they moved here. That led them to become active in Edwards Church and the community. Over the years since 1976, they have been active in Edwards Church and the community volunteering, serving on boards and committees and holding different positions. Carl has been associated with MANNA since 1991.
