On December 3, 2017, GOD came for him and said, “Come home where you can rest.” Carl was born June 20, 1930, in Weir, Mississippi to the late Dan and Ruby Bagwell. He served in the US Army during the Korean War as a demolition engineer.

Carl has been a resident of Jackson, Mississippi since 1954. He was a hard-working, honest mechanic. He worked on cars for many of the doctors and their families when he was employed at King Brown Auto, Parker Truck Service, and Firestone. He retired from Firestone in 1992.

One of his greatest accomplishments was his beautiful and highly productive vegetable garden on the corner of Woody Drive and McDowell Road in South Jackson, which was admired by everyone.

Carl was a GODLY man who was admired for his humility and quiet strength by all who knew him. He was a member of Oak Forest Baptist Church. He was preceded in death by his parents, Dan and Ruby, his brother Charles, and his sister Nell Coleman. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Pat, daughter, Donna Reynolds (and husband Jeff), son Mark (and wife Vivian), sister Danny Parker (and Leo Parker), and brother Covis. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Shannon Linkous, Kristy Bagwell, Robbie Bagwell, Michael Reynolds (and wife Kayla), and Stephen Reynolds (and wife Laura). His great-grandchildren are Alexa and Hailey Linkous, Ruth and Elijah Reynolds, and Ezekiel Reynolds who is arriving later in December.

Visitation will be 1:00pm until the 2:00pm funeral service, Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at Chancellor Funeral Home in Byram. Interment will follow at Parkway Cemetery.
