He was one of the first people to drive a car across the entire Island of Newfoundland from Port aux Basques to St. John's. Karl moved to Newfoundland permanently in 1960. In 1962, he and Roberte opened a photography business, Nova Photo, and continued with the school photography business, and also established a photographic processing lab, located first in Curling and then in Pasadena. In Pasadena, where Karl and Roberte moved in 1978, Karl pursued many interests, including architecture, art, tree planting, and his beloved Chow-Chow dogs. Karl was a member of the Rotary Club and Scharaffia International. Karl was a born story-teller and enjoyed giving speeches on topics dear to his heart.

The things we feel so deeply, are the hardest things to say.
But we your family loved you in a very special way.
They say that memories are golden,  well that may be true.
But, we never wanted memories  we only wanted you.
If tears could build a stairway  and heartaches make a lane.
We'd walk the path to heaven  and bring you home again.
Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again
