Carl was surrounded by his loved ones at his home in Oskaloosa when he died early Tuesday morning. He was 54 years, 6 months and 20 days of age.

Albert Carl Blommers was born to Gysbert and Violet June Schakel Blommers on December 9, 1955 in Oskaloosa. The family lived in What Cheer and Carl attended Tri-County School. Carl's first job was with Vermeer Manufacturing in Pella and he worked in various positions over the 14 years while he was employed there. He later owned and operated the Seasons Lounge in Pella for several years. Carl married Teresa Riley and two children, Michelle and Cory, were born to this union. He later married Rita Fuller and two children, Brandon and Valerie, were born to this union. November 21, 1998, he married Pamela Jayne Major and they shared eleven years together. Carl was first and foremost a dad – to not only his own children, but to his brothers and sisters as well. Carl was the second of eight children, with most of them living with him at some point in their lives. Carl's second passion was his music, from an early age he was singing. He had several bands, including Carl Blommers and the Blue Mist Band and Stepp'n Back; a highlight of his performances included impersonating Elvis Presley. Carl also enjoyed tinkering with cars and trucks; he loved to fix, maintain and detail them. Flying was something Carl also loved; he had aspirations to be a pilot and fulfilled one of his last wishes by taking a flight from the Pella Airport in May.

Carl's family includes his wife, Pamela Blommers of Oskaloosa; his children: Michelle (Shawn) Van Gorp of Pella, Cory Blommers of Killeen, Texas; Brandon (Jessica) Blommers of Oskaloosa and Valerie Diaz-Bandera of Pella; his step-children: Heather (James) Mantel of Ottumwa, Holly (Eric) Cormeny of Ottumwa, Hillary (Whitney) Garman of New Sharon, and Shawn (Mary) McCombs of Albia; nine grandchildren; nine step-grandchildren; his siblings: Judy (Jack) Penman of Monroe, Gary (Evelyn) Lamb of Pella, Dorothy (Lee) Fuller of Pella, Janie (Dave) Sneller of Newton, and Arland (Jo) Lamb of Pella; and many nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, Carl was preceded in death by his brothers: Doug Blommers and Norman Lamb and a brother-in-law, Paul DeKruyff.
