Carl was born April 5,1940, in Canadian, Texas to Carl Thomas and Eva Hornback. He attended public schools in Canadian. He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Canadian. Everyone knew Carl.  He was always teasing people, asking, “When are you going to pay me what you owe me?” He never met a stranger and would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need.  He had a heart the size of Texas.  Carl loved everyone and he loved Canadian, where he resided all but two years of his life.  He was a loving brother and friend and will be greatly missed by many.

Carl was employed for Hemphill County Precinct III where he was an equipment operator for twenty-two years. He retired in March of 2005.  He also worked for the City of Canadian and the Canadian Mill hauling lumber from Canadian to Houston. He loved to drive up and down the highway. He would often get in his pickup in the morning and make a several hour trip only to turn right back around and return home the same day.  He loved to fish and took many fishing trips with his siblings.

The family wishes to express their gratitude for all the prayers and kindness extended.  Special thanks to Dr. Cody Culwell, John Holt, Hemphill County Hospice, Hemphill County Home Health and Mesa View Senior Living.

Carl was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Eva Hornback, two sisters, Helen Cook and Rosemary Wisdom, and a brother, Charles Ray.

Survivors include brother Joe Hornback and wife Joyce of Ardmore, Oklahoma; sister Darlene Eads and husband Bill Branscum of Pampa; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, great nieces and nephews; great-great nephew Elliott Don Meschke of Pampa, and his dear friend John Holt of Canadian.

Memorials be given to Mesa View Senior Living, 106 Teas Circle, Canadian, Texas 79014, Hemphill County Hospice, 1020 S. 4th, Canadian, Texas, 79014.
