A baseball lover, he could often be found cheering on his Chicago Cubs and would reminisce of playing church softball in his youth. Carl and Ruth loved traveling with their friends and he also loved meeting with his buddies at the coffee shop to “solve world problems”. For all his loves, family is what brought him the most joy. He is survived by his children, Carla (Doug) Yoder of Goshen, Diane (Ken) Post, Bob (Christina) Griebel, Roger (Heidi) Griebel all of Fort Wayne, Jim (Jill) Griebel of Hoagland; sisters-in-law, Mary Aghabekian of Fort Wayne and Edie Griebel of Monroeville; grandchildren, Dan (Michelle), Emily, and Susannah Mishler, Kurt (Faith) and Kara Post, Katie (David) Pranger, Robert (Kenzie), Mary (Matt Schroeder), Joel, and Justin Griebel, Megan (Dustin) Daniels, Melissa (Matt) Baum, Mike Griebel, Adam (Lyndsy), Ben (Kyren), and Joe Griebel, Rachel (Josh) Chowning, and Amy Griebel; great grandchildren, Mikaela (Dayne Ousley) Post, Addison and Brooklyn Pranger, Oliver, Jackson, and Ellie Griebel, Caroline Daniels, Bailee Baum, Adalynn, Tim, Lydia, and Daniel Griebel, with one more due January 2019; and special friend, Joan Reichhart.
