Mary Sue, Peggy, Julie....My heart cries for you at losing your dad. What a good man he was...
Not only humorous, but honest, kind, thoughtful, generous and God fearing. He will be missed. But what a joy to know he is once again with your mom, and in the presence of Almighty God. You are all in my prayers and somehow I know you will all take care of each other.....just as your dad took care of each of you. God bless you all!

Mary Sue, Peggy, and Julie. From spending the night at your house when we were kids to working at Best Panel Homes as a teenager to family gatherings through the years, I always remember Uncle Carl smiling and joking around. Your Dad always teased me about the shape of my glasses and we went on from there laughing together. I haven’t seen him for a long time, but Mom always told me about the outings he took with my Dad and Uncle Tony. I pray that God will comfort your broken hearts for having to say goodbye to such a special Dad. With sympathy and love, Kathy Nease

The Otte Family gathered at our place of business each Wednesday afternoon for lunch. Usually six to eight of the members joined to talk about everything. They were a pleasure to have as customers (all who became friends of ours). Irma (whom I called "The Commander") ran the show. Our young lady, Amber, was always their server and she took care of their wishes and had a lot of fun doing it. When Carl came to pay his check, he would give paper dollars and if there was any change (coins) he would refuse it with the comment "no metal" back. We closed our business (Stone's Restaurant in Cheviot) after 57 years in January, 2020.
We were cherished to have served the Otte Family in our time there. May Carl Rest In Peace.

Mary Sue, Peg, Julie & all your family -

We are sorry for your loss and so glad we were there to celebrate Big Carl’s 85th drive-by birthday. My forever memory is the party at your house on Hearne when Mary Sue came back from visiting Vicki in CA. Your dad leading us in a parade wearing his aviator cap and playing his tuba made of the pool hose!! From there cutting the ‘polo’ bear cake into shapes led requested like a football. How fun, Hugs and prayers for all. He will be missed here but heaven will be more fun now.
