PORTLAND, Ore. - Carl Steven Goebel, 34, died July 22. 2011 in Portland. He was born Dec. 18, 1977 in Cincinnati.
Carl graduated from Jesuit High School in Portland, and earned his bachelor's degree in software engineering from Boston College. He enjoyed a successful career as a senior software engineer.
Carl had a passion for the outdoors whether attacking the slopes on his snowboard, riding trails on his dirt bike, whitewater rafting or traveling the world from the seat of a motorcycle.
He loved music, especially bluegrass. He was a committed Phish-head, attending many concerts around the country.
Most of all he enjoyed and made time for his friends and counted his brother Luke and sister Marie at the top of that list. He was a proud godfather to the daughter of his friends Lyle and Lyzette Coppinger.
Carl was a gentle giant with the heart of a lion and ferociousness of a bear. He had a kind and generous spirit and was a true and loyal friend if you were lucky enough to be one. He loved his St. Bernard Balloo beyond reason.
Carl will be missed by his parents, Elizabeth Eiting and Steven Goebel, his siblings, Luke and Marie Goebel; his grandparents Jack and Marie Eiting, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends too numerous to count.
