Karl John Bock
Bock, Karl John 11/26/59 - 9/13/23 Oh how we loved YOU! You were beyond talented in fixing anything. A true savant. Not much you couldn't do. You were a loyal friend. You were kind, helpful, generous and loving. And Oh how the little children loved you. They were drawn to your mischievous spirit. You would shower them with candy or $. $ was only paper to you, it comes and goes was your motto. Traveling the country in your semi was your Zen. The many cities and people you met along the way...you've left a huge mark in this world and a huge void with your departure. You will forever be deeply loved and missed. Your memory will live on through the many stories to tell of your interesting doings. You left WAY too many crazy footprints to keep us entertained. You said Momma was calling you home. Go rest in Paradise. The heavens are alive with your arrival. Behave. Until we meet again~ Karl is preceded in death by his mother and father, Yvonne & Ralph Bock, nephew Joey, niece Alexia.
