Carl Buhlert

Nov. 19, 1930 — Oct. 22, 2013

Carl Wescott Buhlert, originally of Placerville, Calif., passed peacefully from this life while in hospice care in Torrance, California at the age of 82. Survivors include his wife, Martha; four children, Terri Buhlert of Cameron Park, Gael Buhlert and Barry Seid of Pollock Pines, Cathie Jo Buhlert of Amado, Ariz., and Patrick and Val Buhlert of Torrance; four grandchildren; one great-grandson; and brothers, Gerald (Kathy) and Joseph (Charlene). He was preceded in death by his parents, Ted and Willye Irene of Diamond Springs; his sisters, Alyce and Estelle; and brothers, Allen, Bruce, Richard and Donald.

Carl was born on Nov. 19, 1930, at the Placerville Sanitorium. He attended elementary school at the one-room school house in Ringold and Camino School. He grew up on the Buhlert family ranch on Cedar Ravine in Diamond Springs surrounded by a large, boisterous family and many friends. He attended high school at El Dorado High, where he played baseball. After graduation he married Patsy Davidson, also of Diamond Springs. He served in the Army during the Korean war, and obtained the rank of Staff Sergeant. He moved his young family to Torrance after leaving the Army to pursue a career in the building trade. He started his own construction company, CB Construction, specializing in residential remodels and new construction.

In 1979 Carl married Martha Hayden, who had three grown children — Mickey, Kyle and Lori. They were active in The Calvary Chapel in the South Bay with pastor Steve Mays. They continued to live in The South Bay area of Los Angeles County until his death. He enjoyed outdoor sports, especially fishing and backpacking. He was a devoted Los Angeles Dodgers and Rams fan. His family barbecues and Fourth of July fire works displays created many lasting memories.

Carl’s ashes will be returned to Placerville as he wished. A memorial service will be held on the family ranch in Diamond Springs.
