Carl Telfer, 71 of Delaware, Ohio, left this world on February 11, 2024 for the next part of his journey. He was a loving husband, father, “pop-pop,” and identical twin brother.
Leaving behind wife Patricia, son Jonathan and partner Mani, daughter Kayla and husband Phil, grandsons Finnick and Silas, and twin brother Lyle and wife Annette.
Carl for his work career was an art teacher and administrator with Marion City School system for 31 years. He so enjoyed sharing his talents with grade schoolers and loved teaching them how to draw and be creative. One of his favorite art passions was leading them into creating their own license plates.
Carl loved everything cars. He read about them, he watched them on TV, he collected many sizes of them, and he so enjoyed working on them, from his early GTO’s to his most favorite Corvette. He passed this love of cars onto his grandsons Finnick and Silas, who have cars in hand always.
While teaching, and after retirement, he worked at times for NAPA Auto Parts of Marion and later for O’Reilly Auto Parts of Marion. In high school and college, he worked for a gas station and both a Pontiac and later a Porsche Audi dealership detailing cars. Yes, Carl was all about cars, and was a detailer and maintenance man until the end.
He is already sadly missed by family and friends; however, memories of him and his love for cars will persist.
The family suggests memorials be given to the Marion Area Humane Society or the Arts Castle of Delaware, Ohio.
A private graveside service will be held at Marion Cemetery with a Celebration of Life service to be held at a later date.
