Carl J. (Joe) Scharrer, Jr. was born January 13, 1934 in Baltimore, Maryland. Joe lived in Baltimore until he entered military service in 1956. He served 2 years in the US Army and was stationed in Fort Dix, NJ where he developed his life-long interest in cooking. Joe became an apprentice in Local 24 and began his career in Insulation, Coatings, and Linings. This career not only enabled Joe to see much of the United States, but also provided opportunities to work and travel through many countries around the world. His favorite activities were duck-pin bowling, where he received a national ranking, and baseball, whether it was playing, watching, or talking statistics to anyone who would listen. Joe married Lois (Elms) Enos on February 19, 1983 in Tulsa, Oklahoma and they celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary in February 2013. With Tulsa as their home base, Joe and Lois worked and traveled to several states and 15 foreign countries. After he retired, they moved to Skiatook, Oklahoma. Joe is survived by his 4 children, Carl Scharrer, Gregory Scharrer, Joseph Scharrer, and Tesina Scharrer Painter; 3 stepsons, Dennis Enos, Steve Enos, and David Enos; 15 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. The memorial service will be held at the First Baptist Church in Skiatook, Oklahoma on September 3, 2013 at 11:00 am. Internment will be held at the Floral Haven Funeral Home in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma at a later date. Joe felt he was blessed and responded to the scripture, “Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you.” Deuteronomy 16:17.
