Carl Emerson Eikelberry, 92, of Streetsboro, passed away peacefully at his home on June 8, 2019. He was born in Cambridge, Ohio on March 13, 1927 to the late Albert and Stella Eikelberry. Carl grew up in St. Clairsville, Ohio. He graduated from St. Clairsville High School in 1948 and belonged to the United Presbyterian Church. In his youth, he worked on local farms and also in the coal mines. In 1949, he married the former Betty Drake and they moved to Kent, Ohio in 1951 and began their family.
