Carl E. Frysinger

My time on Earth has come and gone, but I have lived a wonderful life with few, if any, regrets.

My high school and college summers were spent as a counselor at Camp Swatara. There I met the love of my life, Cindi, and developed friendships that have lasted my lifetime. It also prepared me for my career.

For 33 years I taught health and PE in the Central Dauphin School District. During that time, I spent 26 years coaching soccer – both at CD East and CD High Schools. Between boys and girls’ soccer, and junior high girls track and basketball, I ended up coaching for 62 seasons. It was lots of fun!

Cindi and I always shared a love of travel. When we were young, we took our tent and traveled all over the US and most of Europe. Later, we ventured out into the wider world, visiting all 7 continents and about 100 countries…without one cruise! Some of my favorite places were: Antarctica, the ancient Silk Road, Torres del Paine, Bhutan, the Himalayas, and our own National Parks. My favorite cities included: Istanbul, Varanasi, Hanoi, and Rome. Through our travels, we learned about the world we live in and visited many amazing sights, both natural and man-made.

I also enjoyed skiing, going to the gym, and watching the Phillies and the Eagles. In my retirement, I loved cooking, including the many cuisines from the places we visited.

Since cancer has gotten the best of me, and I’m now on my last great adventure, I only wish that I would have had a few more years to spend with my wife. Hopefully, the many great memories we’ve made together will help sustain her for the remainder of her life.

Should you wish to make a contribution, we suggest MV Hospice, 98 Masonic Dr Suite 101 or Evergreen Hospice Unit at MV, 1 Masonic Dr – both in Elizabethtown, PA 17022 or a charity of your choice.

  • Cindi, I know he is sadly missed, yet you’re blessed by his life and his love for you. He demonstrated his heart for service to his community by volunteering at Masonic Village, and we are all the more blessed having known him. Strength and Honor.

  • A life long friendship which started in Norway and that we have cherished ever since and ever will. You now belong to one of those stars we see when we look up at the skies.
    We can only say that we are grateful this chance encounter is bigger than what we could have imagined.
    Our dearest love from France from Anne and family.

  • Carl was a wonderful man who loved Cindi very much. He liked to come to my home because I had so many places to take a map. He will be missed by all . Love. Uncle Marv.

  • Carl and I shared an office at CD East Junior High…so glad to hear he loved life! Sorry he left too early. Peace and warm thoughts to Cindi.

  • He fought a good fight with Cindi by his side, together as they did everything. So sad his earthly life ended. He was such a fun and positive guy. Will remember fondly our bocci games. Will surely miss his great smile. Prayers continue as Cindi grieves and structures a new future.

  • Peter and I are blessed to have shared the “Backroads of Iberia” with you and Cindi back in 2014. You were an inspiration then as we listened to your fantastic travelogues. We know Cindi will walk the upcoming journey not really alone, as you have instilled so many fond memories shared by many. We didn’t know you were the incredible coach and mentor you shared. So many lives touched by you! Rest in peace!
