Obituary of Carl Sides, Jr

Carl Leon Sides, Jr., age 41, of Mount Vernon, formerly of Buna, Texas, passed away in the early afternoon hours of Monday, September 18, 2017 in Mount Vernon.  Carl was born on July 19, 1976 in Elyria, Ohio to Carl Leon Sides, Sr. and the late Ouida Turner.  Carl became a skilled mechanic and learned how to fix almost anything a broke down car could throw his way.

Carl married Shyreen Nichole Goodman in 2010.  Together they have spent the last 7 years raising a young family and living a lifetime of memories.

Carl was a longtime resident of Buna, Texas – having only been in Mount Vernon a few short weeks after fleeing from Hurricane Harvey.  In a few short weeks they found a home in Mount Vernon.  Carl attended the Central Baptist Church in Buna.  Those who knew him best will remember Carl as an awesome mechanic and even better husband, father and friend who will be missed by all who knew him.
