Col Carl E. Buchmann USMC (ret), 88, Denton, TX

Carl E. Buchmann left this world on Monday, Oct. 9, 2017, at his home in Robson Ranch in Denton, Texas, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

SERVICE: A family ceremony will be held at Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery where he will be interred with military honors.

Born in Belleville, Ill., in 1929 he met his wife, Carolyn, on a Delta Airlines flight in 1957. He and Carolyn were married in 1958 and enjoyed 59 years of marriage. After graduating from DePaul University with a Juris Doctorate degree in 1960 he was once again commissioned in the U.S Marine Corps. Carl traveled to many places in the world and did many things throughout his life, but as a 28-year career United States Marine his heart was always with the U.S. Marines. Once a Marine, always a Marine. He rose to the rank of colonel and as an attorney in the Judge Advocate General's Corps he was stationed in many places; east coast, west coast and overseas as well as a tour during the conflict in Vietnam.

After retirement from the Marines in 1978, he came to Texas to practice law as an assistant city attorney for the city of Fort Worth. In 1980 he moved to a position at Miller Brewing Company in Fort Worth as the public relations manager and rose to the corporate office where he was responsible for Government Affairs for the Southwest region of the United States. He enjoyed this work for its travel, experiences and ability to be involved in the political aspect of shaping legislation. After retiring from Miller Brewing in 1990, he and his wife moved to Florida where they enjoyed their retirement years for 16 years before deciding to return to Texas to be closer to their children and their families.

SURVIVORS: He is survived by his wife, Carolyn; son, Craig and his wife, Jana, and their three children; his daughter, Caron and her two children; as well as his three older sisters.
