Carl Durst

   Carl W. Durst, 86, passed away Sept. 5, 2006 at his home in Gladwin.

   He was born June 14, 1920 to Edmund and Laverne (Frederick) Durst in Mt. Clemens. Carl retired from General Motors Tech Center in Warren. He was a member of Harrison Moose Lodge #2268 and Our Savior Lutheran Church of Gladwin.

   During his life, Carl had many interests including bowling and bingo. But he took great pride in calling square dances at regional jamborees and community functions.

   He will be greatly missed by his family and the many people able to say they were his friend. A longtime resident of Armada, Carl married the former Rosaline Constance on Aug. 22, 1942. She predeceased him in 1987. He later married Clara (Welch) in Gladwin in 1991.

   He is survived by his wife, Clara; sons Denny of North Branch, and Gary of South Africa; daughters Nadine (Roy) Allen of Capac, and Carleen Durst of Washington Township; 15 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; a step-daughter, Judy (Stan) Davis of Beaverton; step-son Tom (Vicki) Ziemer of Beaverton, and a son-in-law, Joseph Hauler of Armada.

   He was predeceased by his daughter, Karen Hauler in 1993; his parents; and two brothers, Ralph and Edgar. The family would like to thank Southern Care Hospice of Saginaw for their assistance. According to his wishes, Carl will be cremated and his remains buried next to Rosaline in the Armada Township Cemetery.

   Arrangements were made by Hall-Kokotovich Funeral Home of Gladwin and Beaverton.
