Carl Finch ’58

Carl died at home after a very short illness on January 30, 2015.  At K, he earned his bachelor’s degree in mathematics. He received a master’s degree (mathematics) from the University of Wisconsin (1961) and a second master’s degree (counseling psychology) from Santa Clara University (1988). He retired from IBM in 1987 after working there for 26 years. Carl valued his time as a volunteer for the organization Suicide and Crisis in Santa Clara County, and in 1984 he won an achievement award for his work there from the Volunteer Center of Santa Clara County. He also spent many hours as a volunteer counselor working with both the victim and perpetrator of sexual abuse cases. Carl and his wife, Patricia (Cooper) Finch ’58, moved to Oregon in 2002. He very much enjoyed spending time with his family and working outdoors on his 25 acres of land.

    Carl was a good friend when I was at “K,” and I was very sorry to read of his death. His wry sense of humor could always help to lighten a heavy situation. My best wishes to Pat.
