He especially loved singing in the choir and playing his mandolin. Carl's hand-crafted picture frames appear in many homes and businesses throughout the region. He was an avid archer, hunter and fisherman.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Edward Lee McGlothlin.

A host of friends also survive him along with the members of the Fountain of Joy Church who have been such a blessing to the family with their love and support.

Funeral services for Carl McGlothlin will be conducted at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 13, 2013 at the Hurst-Scott Funeral Chapel in Richlands, Virginia with Bishop Tom and Pastor Judy McKnight.
