Carl Clark Liddell, 82, our loving husband, dad, grandfather, great-grandfather, and brother returned to our Heavenly Father on September 11, 2020 after courageously battling Leukemia. Carl was born on March 31, 1938, son of Clarence Dire Liddell and Thora (Clark) Liddell in Roosevelt, Utah where he grew up on a 160 acre farm on South Myton Bench. As a young boy he learned the value of hard work, following his father around with a shovel to tend a water stream, cut alfalfa, milk cows, and make cream which was sold to the creamery.

Carl was a devoted and faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, having served a mission in New Zealand for 2 ½ years. His most cherished memories consisted of working side by side with his Mission President, Robert L. Simpson, as Second Counselor, in which he planned, conducted, trained missionaries and also helped the President make missionary moves. Carl was humble, dedicated, loyal, kind, responsible, and forthright in all his actions and thoughts with whom he associated with.

He served as Bishop in the Alamosa Second Ward and Executive Secretary in the Stake Presidency along with many more callings throughout his life.

Carl attended Brigham Young University where he met his eternal companion, Jolene Adams, and they were sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple on June 11, 1964 by Elder Boyd K. Packer. He loved BYU football and the BYU Dairy. Upon graduating in Business Administration, he secured a job with J.C. Penney Company and his career took him to Salt Lake City, Utah, Logan, Utah, Gallup, New Mexico, Delta, Colorado and Alamosa, Colorado. In his whole career of 35 years, he never missed one day of work, resulting with many career awards and recognitions for outstanding performance and profitability.

Carl spent countless hours throughout his life on the tennis court, golf course, fishing and hunting with his children, grandchildren, and friends. Golf became his #1 passion and his daily routine. His commitment to the game paid off as he got a “hole in one” at the Cattails Golf Course in Alamosa, Colorado. He loved this game and played all the way up until four weeks ago and would state to his kids “drive for show, chip and putt for dough”.

Carl’s most treasured roles were husband, father and grandfather. He extended spiritual, emotional and financial support to each family member to whatever capacity was needed. His positive and quiet disposition invited countless hours of advice and wisdom for all those seeking it and he will leave an everlasting memory of Christ-like attributes etched in our hearts forever.

Carl is survived by his wife Jolene; his children Sandra Overfelt of St. George, Utah, Chad (Lynn) Liddell of Alamosa, Colorado, Kris Liddell of Penrose, Colorado and Dan (Jennifer) Liddell of Parker, Colorado; 11 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren, with one on the way; and his sisters LaRue Dansie of St. George, Utah and Janet Atwood of Fruita, Colorado.

He is preceded in death by his parents Clarence and Thora.

The family would like to thank San Luis Valley Regional Health Medical Center for their countless hours of kindness, concern and medical care.

A visitation will take place at Rogers Family Mortuary in Alamosa from 4-7 pm on Friday, September 18, 2020 with a Graveside service Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 10:00 am at the City of Alamosa Cemetery.

My condolences go out to the Liddell family. I truly will miss Carl. I took over as the GM at Cattails at the end of 2013. I don't think there is any other member that I have seen more than Carl. It was just part of the routine to see Carl and his friends every week day at 9am. My first memories of Carl were when he would always come out with his grandkids Colton and Kyler. They were tiny little guys back then but Carl would always have those two with him. I was always impressed with how Carl would play golf with all he was going through. He was a really good player and played quality golf right up to the end. That was always my question to the boys "did you beat your grandpa today"? I don't know if they ever said yes to that question. Carl reminded me of what golf is all about. It is a great outlet to get some exercise and clear your mind of things going on in our lives. Carl will be missed from our Cattails family.

I got to know this kind gentle man while sitting across from him and his lovely wife in the SLV infusion center. I always looked forward to our times together and chatting about things (usually golf). He always got a laugh when I kidded him about being to loud and causing a commotion.

What an awesome man who lived an exemplary life! One of my favorite memories of Carl is when he would take his sons in the family Ford station wagon and venture into the mountains to go hunting! I was telling somebody about it just the other day. Who needed a 4x4 when you had a station wagon and some tire chains!!
