October 8, 1931 - September 14, 2021
Carl Balderson, Sr., 89, of Parkersburg, W.Va. passed away Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at Parkersburg Care Center. He was born October 8, 1931 in Parkersburg, a son of the late Thomas W. and Leetah Round Balderson. Carl grew up and lived most of his life in Parkersburg. At a young age, Carl developed an honorable work ethic with his first job delivering newspapers and ice in his community. Carl eventually worked in concrete and started his own business, Balderson & Sons Construction, which continued for 50+ years. He was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church for forty years after giving his heart to the Lord at a Crossroads retreat. Carl worked tirelessly for the church, whether it was cooking pancakes or maintenance of the church building. He did it all because of his love for God and his church family. Carl loved Christian music and mostly loved the music played by Steve Kimes. Carl never missed an opportunity to pray and you knew that his prayers were from the heart.
