Obituary for Carl L. Plotner

Carl L. Plotner, 44, of Portage, Ohio passed away December 1, 2018. He was born November 30, 1974 in Bowling Green to Herb and Sharon (Lee) Plotner.

Carl went to Wood Lane Residential Services in 2009 to the Nichols home where he resided for a short time before moving into the Restle home in 2010. Over the years Carl has worked at Wood Lane Industries, ViaQuest and attended Positive Community Connections a couple times a week where he specifically enjoyed going on “excursions” (as he would say) into the community.

Carl spent his free time making all of his staff laugh with his amazing smile, sharp wit, spunk, watching Judge Judy, Ellen, Bob Ross, “Looney Tunes”, shooting hoops, listening to Glen Campbell, reciting commercial jingles, and last but certainly not least running through cornfields.

Carl made such a huge impact on the lives of those who knew him. During his unexpected final hours, not only did every single one of his current staff show up to play their respects; but staff dating back to when Carl first moved into WLRS rallied around him to let him know just how loved he was.

He is survived by his mother Sharon and numerous friends and caregivers at Wood Lane Residential Services.

Services will be private. Dunn Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
