Carl W. Newell passed away December 24, 2008 near his home in Glendale, California. He was born in Frankfort, Kentucky in 1923. Anyone, within a short time of being with Mr. Newell, would quickly learn that he enjoyed the challenge of learning. One of his personal mottos was to “learn something new every day” and he truly practiced that throughout his career. He enjoyed the challenge and had a special knack for solving difficult mechanical problems within a relative short period of time and then developing a workable and practical solution to the problem. He became an accomplished machinist, tool maker, master tool repairman, and a highly skilled injection plastics molder.

At the age of sixteen, he opened his own business, a hobby and model shop, in downtown Glendale, California. His keen sense of design, engineering, and building free-flying model gliders and powered airplanes contributed greatly to his practical knowledge of how to become successful later in life. He always believed that building these models was not successful if the model didn’t climb and soar into the wind currents and disappear over the horizon or as far as he could see.
