DONALD “FUZZY” EUGENE CARLISLE, 81, died on July 9, 2007. He was a longtime resident of Goshen prior to moving to Tuscarawas to reside with his daughter Debbie Arnold, due to illness. Fuzzy was a son of the late Gibson and Grace Kuhn Carlisle and was born September 24, 1925. He retired from Gradall in 1987 after more than 35 years of service. He was commonly referred to as the “Unofficial Mayor of Goshen”. On April 10, 1959, he married Carol L.
