Carl Edward Askins, age 92, of Evansville, IN, passed peacefully at 10:45 a.m. on Thursday, March 31, 2022, at River Pointe Health Center with his wife by his side.
Carl was born October 20, 1929 in Louisville, KY, to Paul Askins and Josie (Burch) Askins. He retired from Whirlpool Corporation after 40 years. He loved serving the Lord and was an active member of Bethel Church. He and his wife, Sharon, were faithful members of Pastor R.R. Schwambach’s Bible Class. They sang with the Saints Alive Choir where he earned the title of the Only Yodeler. Together they did a lot of traveling and visited the Holy Land twice. Carl loved to study the Bible.
Carl got a thrill out of making a deal when bartering with salesmen. He enjoyed gardening and square dancing. Carl was a generous and giving man who enjoyed helping others. He will be missed by all those who knew and loved him.
Carl is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Sharon G. (Felstead) Askins; daughter, Frances Burch (Ron); sons, Carl Lee Askins (Katie); Kenneth Askins (Susan), and Dr. Marlon Jordan (Pamela); 8 grandchildren; and many great grandchildren; and daughter at heart, Terri Bartlett.
