Carl worked at a number of professions until his retirement. As a youngster in St. Louis he was employed as a Clerk, Casket Trimmer and foreman for Mound-Carothers Casket Company. He eventually accepted employment with the Alpen Brau Brewery and then with Falstaff Brewery where he retired as a Beer Brewer.
Carl and my dad Frank Buchholz were the closest of the Buchholz cousins. As a child our families would frequently visit with each other. This visitation continued throughout their senior years until Carl's death.
