Shark's Eye Tournament and Festival Contact Us  
Carl J. Darenberg, Jr.

Unfortunately as most of you know, we lost a great man last Fall, Carl Darenberg, Jr. He was one of the friendliest, most generous, caring, loyal, loving men you could ever have had the honor of knowing. He was truly a man who would help anyone and did not know how to say no. Words can't express the sadness and pain our families and community are feeling from this terrible accident. He will be missed and loved forever. Thanks for everything Carl we love you. And thank you all for your love and support for all of us.

The family are asking that in lieu of flowers if you would like to donate to a cause that Carl truly believed in, and put tons of time and, heart and, soul into we are going to ask that you send that flower money to a more worthy cause, the Shark's Eye All-Release Tournament & Festival. We will be changing the name of this annual educational event to the "Carl Darenberg annual tag and release tournament". Please use the donation button below. Thank you all on behalf of Chase and Courtney Darenberg, Dan Christman, the entire Marine Basin family and everyone else who knew and loved Carl.
