September 28, 1942 - April 12, 2014

ESSEX, Vt. - Carl Edward Eells, 71, beloved husband, father and grandfather, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on April 12, 2014, following an accident in Fletcher, Vt. Carl was born on Sept. 28, 1942, in Rochester, Vt., the son of Wendell and Dorothy (Bruce) Eells. He attended Rochester schools, graduating in 1960. He graduated from the University of Vermont in 1964 with a degree in Electrical Engineering. He spent most of his career at IBM, retiring in 1993.
