Carl Howard Bledsoe

Carl Howard Bledsoe passed away on March 11 in Slidell, La.

Carl was born in Flagstaff, Ariz. His father was in the Air Force and the Navy, so he was privileged to call many places home. But New Orleans, La., was his favorite place. He loved the music, the food, the atmosphere. Carl worked as a security systems technician II with Securadyne Systems. He enjoyed his work immensely.

Carl had the most beautiful smile. He was a kind, loving, happy man. Carl will be missed by his parents, Bob and Marcia Bledsoe, and his step-sisters. His grandmother, Benjai Appel, of Grand Junction, Colo., loved him dearly. She will miss him greatly and the opportunity to make him mashed potatoes anytime he came for a visit. He is survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins. There are so many people who will miss him, but his dear friends Gaby, Missy and Ross are at the top of the list. Godspeed, Carl.
