April 20, 1955 - April 4, 2022
On April 4th, 2022, Carl Allan Tolbert was called home to be with our Lord at the age of 67. He is preceded in death by his wonderful parents: Shirley and Ross Tolbert, and his sister Cynthia Tolbert Kuhlmann. He is survived by his three children: Ashley Tolbert, Allison Turner, and Kyle Tolbert who adored him. He also has six grandchildren: Brody, Anthony, Julianna, Parker, Patrick, and Paige who will miss him dearly. He is also survived by his sisters: Debra Benavides and Carol Lawrence. He also left behind many beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins. Carl was born in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated college in 1978 from Texas Lutheran University with degrees in Liberal Arts, Chemistry, and Secondary Education. A long-time fan of football with a talent to match, Carl was an All American football player for his alma mater. A powerful offensive guard, he celebrated many wins as a Bulldog. Within his fraternity he made life-long friendships and legendary stories that will be shared by those who will miss and remember him. His fierce intelligence coupled with his chemistry degree led him to a successful career for over 40 years in the oil well and drilling fluids industry. His job allowed him to travel the world making friends along the way. His favorite job, by far, was as a grandpa. It was a job he took very seriously by going to every game possible and never missing a chance to spend time with his grandchildren. His love for them could never be overstated. For those wishing to bid Carl a farewell may do so at his viewing on Friday April 22nd at Mission Park Funeral Chapels North 3401 Cherry Ridge. The hours of 4-5pm will be reserved for family, and 5-8pm the remaining public is welcome. A church service will be held for Carl on Saturday April 23rd at 10 am at Destiny Church 8635 Callaghan Road in the chapel uphill.
