Obituary of Carl Hampton Putz

Please share a memory of Carl to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Carl Hampton Putz, PhD (1940-2010) Carl was a philosopher and a lover of the natural world, music, science and art, a constant scholar, and an insightful and patient teacher and friend. Born in Haddonfield, NJ, to Alfred Putz and Ruth Hampton, he pursued his education at Antioch College, University of Pittsburgh, Pacific School of Religion. He taught at DePauw University, University Without Walls, and JFK University in California. When multiple sclerosis took away the use of his legs and dimmed his eyes, he turned to his incredible intellect and ever-questioning mind. He became The Philosopher, the lover of wisdom. Upon returning East in 1999, Carl offered his gift of teaching philosophy to Penobscot Language School in Rockland, and to the Camden Philosophical Society. He was, he claimed, an "old curmudgeon", and he was a shining light for those who knew and loved him. Carl is mourned by his companion and sparring partner of 28 years, Asha Stager, and by his friends and students around the world. THere will be a celebration of Carls' life, December 17th, 2010 at Penobscot School, Rockland. Time to be announced. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Penobscot Language School or Coastal Mountain Land Trust. On-line condolences may be offered to the family at
