Carm is survived by his wife, Marti; daughters Rebecca Brown (Greg) Shermans Dale, PA, Susan McKenzie (Tim) Logan, UT, Michelle Corr, Hawaii. His beloved grandchildren, Sarah and Faith; and sister, Carole Kocher. He was preceded in death by his parents, and his brother, Fred Bilardi.
He graduated from the University of Scranton and Penn State University, and spent his life developing and acquiring various businesses. Carm was a former Vice President at Sun Health Corporation and was the owner of Western Property Management.
Carm cherished time spent with family and friends. He never met a stranger, and he never met a piece of chocolate that he didn’t like.
