Brundidge Carl Irwin smallest

Carl Irwin Brundidge

February 10, 2023, Carl Irwin Brundidge passed away at the age of 67. Carl was born to Bishop and Jessie Brundidge in 1955 in Flint, Michigan. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Kettering University (General Motors Institute), and a juris doctorate from George Washington University. Carl enjoyed a successful career as a patent attorney for several decades and led his own law firm for over 10 years. In 1983, he married Karen, and together they raised three daughters, Danisha, Jessica, and Destiny in the Washington DC area.  

Carl loved his work, and his impact was worldwide. Whether for leisure, exploration, or business he was an avid traveler, and visited every continent (including Antarctica!). When he wasn’t working, Carl loved deep sea fishing, relaxing on tropical beaches, and experiencing new adventures. Carl loved his family and friends and enjoyed spending quality time with them. He was often described as having a calm presence…like a “cool breeze” and at times a “quiet storm”. Carl had a megawatt smile that could brighten any room.

Carl is preceded in death by his father Bishop, and his sister Sandra. He is survived by his cherished wife Karen, his beloved daughters Destiny, Jessica and Danisha, his son-in-law Jonathan, his grandchildren Jonathan and Chase, his mother Jessie, his parents-in-law Jean and Jim, his sisters Patricia and Deborah, and a host of nieces, nephews, and close relatives.
