Carl Binzer

Carl Binzer died peacefully at age 82 in Weatherford, with his children at his side, in the early morning of Saturday, March 9, 2013, after struggling with pneumonia. His beloved wife of 58 years had died just seven weeks earlier. 

Funeral Mass is 1 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church, 1802 Bethel Road, Weatherford, TX 76086 on Saturday, March 16. A viewing is 6-8 p.m. Friday at Galbreaith Pickard Funeral Chapel, 913 N. Elm St., in Weatherford with rosary at 7 p.m.

Born Sept. 21, 1930, in New York City (Brooklyn), Carl was an engineer. He obtained a degree in Electrical Engineering from Brooklyn Polytechnic College, now a part of New York University, and a degree in Business-Marketing from Rutgers. A veteran, Carl served in the U.S. Navy (ROTC) through high school and college and the U.S. Army as a second lieutenant in the Army Corps of Engineers. He worked for RCA, Northrop-Page, Harris and retired from General Electric. He often worked on defense contracts relating to communications and provided leadership on several overseas assignments in Greece and Nicaragua, most notably.

He will be remembered for his quiet strength, his consistency, steadfast love for his family, and devotion to his beliefs.

Carl is survived by his children, Carol D. Binzer, PhD, Thomas C. Binzer, M.D., and Tara Larson Binzer; grandchildren, Larson Elizabeth and Patrick Carl Binzer; and sister-in-law, Judy (Bachmann) Ellis and brother-in-law, Don Ellis, of Virginia. Carl was uncle and cousin to many. 

Carl Binzer is pre-deceased by his wife (Elizabeth); his parents (Stella and Charles Binzer); and his in-laws (Dorothy and Maurice Bachmann) and his grandson, Cornelius Butler.

The Binzer family is grateful for all of the kindness, support, love and prayers throughout Carl and Bette’s journey; especially to the doctors and health professionals for their extraordinary expertise and care, and Parish friends for their care and attention to their physical needs, and to those who nurtured them spiritually.

In lieu of flowers, please make contribution(s) to the St. Stephen’s Catholic Parish Land Purchase fund or to the charity of your choosing.
