Carl Brownlo Bliesener, of Charleston, entered into eternal rest on December 30, 2021 in Charleston, SC. Mr. Bliesener was born in Columbia, SC on April 4, 1932 to Major Arthur G. and Irene Bliesener. Throughout his youth, he travelled extensively with his parents and older brother, Arthur, to many areas of the world. He finished high school at Marion Military Institute in Alabama and then returned to Charleston, where the family had settled, to attend college at the Citadel from 1950 to 1954. Upon graduation, he accepted a commission as a 2nd lieutenant in the US Marine Corps. After completing Officers training, he attended flight training and embarked on his first duty station in Japan to fly jet fighter planes. Upon leaving the military, he owned his own housing construction business and then joined Daniel Construction out of Greenville, SC for a long and exciting career. He travelled all over the world, including a 7 year stay in Saudi Arabia, taking his family with him. He retired in 2000 and he and his wife, Joyce, settled back down in Charleston to enjoy their children and grandchildren. In retirement, he remained busy with his woodworking business in his home workshop, flying model aircraft, and enjoying cruises with his bride of 44 years. Joyce passed in 2008, but he stayed in the family home and continued his woodworking. Carl is survived by his daughters, Lisa Bliesener Lynes and her husband, Frank Haeussler, Peggy J. Weber and her husband, Guenter Weber, Kat Walker-Yohn, and his daughter-in-law, Homa Walker.
