CARL W. WELLINGS, died July 27, 2006 at his home in Maryland, due to complications of diabetes. After 64 years on this earth, Carl has gone back to our Heavenly Father to be with his family that had passed on before. He was born October 14, 1941 to Carl and Frances E. Knight Wellings Sr. in Baltimore where he was raised and grew to adulthood. After Carl graduated from High School, he began his education at Baltimore Collegew here he "lettered" in Football and La Crosse. He then attended Towson State Teacher's College and earned a B.S. Degree in Physical Education. During his summer vacations, he would spend time on his farm in Pennsylvania where he learned chicken farming. This paved the way for him to go into the U.S. Peace Corp from 1966 to 1968. In 1969 he moved to Provo to attend BYU, and received a Masters of Education in Counseling. He continued his studies to certify as a marriage and family counselor. While at BYU, he met the "love of his life" Gloria Joan De Bello. The couple were married in Baltimore on April 3, 1971. Their marriage was later solemnized for time and all eternity on May 13, 1972 in the Provo LDS Temple. Carl worked for the Alpine School Districtfor 22 years until he had to retire for medical reasons. He loved learning and teaching. He taught classes to parents to teach the parents how to help their own children to do well in school, and through this he helped thousands of children and their parents learn to work out their problems. He also established a non-profit organization called "Health Helper's" which helped families learn to overcome their health and nutrition problems. Carl had many interests and talents, and was very diverse. He was a scholar in his own right. He invested in real estate, and started many small businesses. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and served many callings, including High Priest and Home Teacher. Carl loved being a father, grandfather and husband. He is survived by his wife Gloria, daughters, Holly Wellings, Natalie Christiansen; sons, Robby Wellings and Mike Wellings; and six grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, George, and by an infant son, Justin. We will all miss him dearly.
