Obituary of Carl David Engle

Carl David Engle



On Aug 10, 1931, Carl was born in Baltimore, MD to Rose and Morris Engle. He was the big brother to predeceased siblings, Hermine (Cissy) Paden and Peggy Wilcowsky. He was father to Annabelle Taylor Cahill, William Gutman and predeceased Kate Machado from his first marriage in MD.  


 He is survived by his devoted wife, Kathy Price Engle, his loving daughter, Jennifer Engle-Coltrin, and precious grandchildren, Maya and Amber Coltrin. 


He will always be remembered for his hilarious personality, kindness and huge infectious smile. He loved the beach and lived first in Malibu and has resided in Santa Barbara for the past 35 years.  Carl could be spotted daily at his favorite place, Hendry's Beach reading in his car and enjoying the scene. 


  After a long career at Engle Advertising in West LA, he retired, moved up the coast and volunteered at the Channel Islands National Park in Oxnard & also dedicated over 5000 hours at the Santa Barbara Zoo. More recently, he worked at Vista Del Monte as a musically gifted happy hour pianist and favorite pool lifeguard.  


He passed away peacefully on Sep 9, 2023 at Sarah House and will live on in our hearts forever. In lieu of flowers, please consider supporting the American Heart Association.
