Carl passed away at his home in Worcester, Massachusetts where he lived with his son and daughter-in-law, Benjamin and Eleni Pasley, on November 25, 2023.

Carl spent his formative years in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston. Ever the hard worker, as a young boy he hustled selling newspapers, delivering milk, and shining shoes. After graduating from Boston Technical High School, he attended Brandeis University where he was an active student organizer and protested for civil rights and justice. In the 1970s, Carl met the love of his life, his wife, Rose. He and Rose established the New Worcester Insurance agency which they operated for over 20 years.

Carl was very active in the Worcester community and worshipped at Emmanuel Baptist Church. There he served as a trustee and on the usher board. He had accepted Christ at an early age and attended New Hope Baptist Church, Community Gospel Center and New Fellowship Baptist Church during his youth.

He is survived by his three sons - Benjamin Pasley, Carlton Pasley, and Torrey Gilmore, a great nephew raised as a son - Mallory Taylor. He had seven grandchildren -Tyrae, Arianna, Alissa, Isaiha, William, Malaki, Amayah and two great grandchildren - Alaiya and Isaac. He had one brother - Philip Jr. (Shari) and four sisters - Phyllis (Windol), Annie (Ruthie), Betty (Frank), and Sharon (Chris – deceased). A fifth sister, Gladys (Mallory), preceded him in death. He had three aunts - Mahaley Brown, Ethel Pasley, Mae West Zeigler and three uncles - William, Morris, and Marvin Wilson, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
