History

Father, teacher, and connoisseur of one-liners and zingers are just a few of the hats known to have been worn by Carl Leverne Tarnstrom. He was born October 17, 1910 in Lindsborg, Kansas where he completed his undergraduate education at Bethany College. Carl spent most of the remainder of his life in California working on graduate studies at the University of Southern California and teaching. The majority of his time as an educator was spent at Palo Verde High School in Blythe, California. He died in Riverside, California on June 2, 1987. Today he is survived by his son Guy Tarnstrom, his daughter-in-law Dianne Tarnstrom, and his three grandchildren: Annelise (Tarnstrom) Osborne, Kari Tarnstrom, and Kristin Tarnstrom. Along with his friends and loved ones, Carl left behind his "Gag File" filled with thousands upon thousands of jokes and gags he collected in hopes that professional entertainers and people in all walks of life will, as he writes, "find mirth and relaxation from tension in seeing the funny side of the too often tragic realities which we face day-in and day-out."
