Carl was born to Elizabeth and Carl M. Jameson in a small town in OK. The family moved around for a while before settling down in Southern California where he went to school and met his future wife Glenda Inman who lived across the street. They married in 1956. He was in ROTC in high school and after they were married they moved to GA for officer training at Fort Benning. They returned to California to start their lives together settling in Turlock, CA where he joined the local National Guard. Carl was in the Guard until he could no longer go any higher in rank and then joined the Army Reserves to total 20 plus years in service. They started a chicken layer business as their parents had and ran the operation from 1959-1991. In 1969, he started a custom silage harvesting business with his brother-in-law, with one 2 row chopper and a few trucks. Later his brother Michael and his children joined the business and the company grew to become very successful.
He was very involved with Castle Air Museum. They had asked him if he could help them move a plane and being an engineer minded man figured a way to transport it to the museum, back in the early 90’s. To date he and his brother Michael and his son Patrick have helped move numerous planes and parts and even a bomb to Castle Air Museum.
He is survived by his wife Glenda Jameson of 58 years; daughter Lizabeth Jameson of Stuarts Draft, VA, Jay (Kathy) Jameson, C.Patrick (Fonda) Jameson both of Hilmar, Kathleen Gunn of Denair; brother Robert (Susan) Jameson of Salinas, CA, Michael (Sandra) Jameson of Turlock; twelve grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
