Carl F. CASON


1935-2010

Carl, dear and gentle husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away surrounded and comforted by his family on October 1, 2010 in Kirkland, WA.  He was 75 years old. Carl is survived and deeply missed by Beverly, his wife of 54 years, his son Michael and wife Martha, daughter Kathleen Motta and husband Bob of El Segundo, CA and daughter Lisa Cason (Wiggins) of Sammamish, WA. Carl is also survived by five grandchildren, Ray and Rebecca Motta, Jeff and Beth Cason, and Kendall Wiggins.

Born August 21st, 1935 in Albany, New York, Carl graduated from Albany High School in 1953 and from Clarkson College of Technology, Potsdam, NY in 1957, with a degree in electrical engineering.  He married his high-school sweetheart, Beverly Jabbour, on February 11, 1956 in Potsdam before moving to Schenectady, NY to work for General Electric. Carl and Beverly moved across the country to Los Angeles in 1958 where Carl worked for Hughes Aircraft for 31 years before retiring in 1989.  They established their family home in El Segundo, CA in 1961 and lived there for 34 years. Carl and Beverly moved to Bothell, WA in 1995.

Carl had a love for music, photography, youth sports, genealogy and his community.  He was active in Westchester Concert Chorus, Bobby Sox Softball and photographed weddings and portraits.  He was especially remembered for photographing El Segundo youth sports for many years.  Carl was baptized into Hope Chapel Del Rey in Westchester, CA in 1984 and developed deep and lasting friendships and fellowship at Evergreen Community Church in Bothell, Washington.

We will always remember Carl’s beautiful baritone voice, subtle wit and gentle nature.  In lieu of flowers, we invite you to make a donation to the Evergreen Healthcare Foundation, Hospice Services, 12040 NE 128th St, MS 5, Kirkland, WA, 98034-3013.

We are tremendously grateful to the compassionate and faithful caregivers over these last few years that have eased Carl’s journey as well as ours: Dr. Buckley Eckart, Dr. Robert Haynes, Dr. Edward Kim, Overlake Hospital Critical Care Unit, Evergreen Hospital, LifeCare Rehabiliation Center, Bothell; Bothell Care, Adult Family Home, and Evergreen Hospice Services and Center.

We would like to thank our extended family and friends for your faithfulness and prayers for Carl and our family during these past months.  Because of these prayers, we experienced the Lord’s peace during this time.

We are very grateful to you all for sharing this time with us.

Beverly and Family

    I remember how Carl loved to tell the story of how he & Beverly met; playing in the sand together at recess, & how he married his childhood sweetheart!! I work with the \ Marriage Enrichment Program \ at our church & I share that story quite often!I also remember when Beverly was baking my 5 tiered wedding cake, it was all she could do to keep Carl from sampling her handiwork!

    God Bless your family I will pray for you all!

    “Now Carl Now!!” That’s what we yelled to Carl during the fireworks show on July 4, 1974. We were “helping” him time the explosions while lying on the outfield grass of the Bobby Sox field. As we remember it, Carl got some great shots that night. He even enlarged them and hung then on the wall by the stairs. We shared some wonderful times together back when. Carl was a man endowed with a great and rye humor. He was smart and patient beyond reason. Friendly and kind and always a friend. We will miss him. Bev and all, we wish you peace and comfort now and always. Chris & Kathy Barrett

    There are no words. So sorry for the lost of Mr. Cason.Some of my happiest memories were driving in our old station wagon down to El Segundo for visits. I’m so sorry we’ve missed so much.
