Carl D. Mittag of Dallas, Texas, died at his home on Dec. 20, 2020, at the age of 58 years. Carl was born June 16, 1962, to Arthur and Gloria (Shipley), in Milwaukee. He graduated from Grafton High School in 1980 and went on to study at MATC, completing the barbering program in 1982. After MATC, Carl worked at Vic’s Barber Shop in Cedarburg, Mr. Dino’s at Northridge Mall, and at Grand Avenue Mall in Milwaukee before moving to Dallas to get away from Wisconsin’s snowy winters. He worked at Hair Creations in Garland, Texas, and then moved to the Firewheel Salons in Garland, Texas, where he worked until the time of his passing. Carl wanted to “travel the world” and made it to the Caribbean, London, Paris, Hawaii, Florida and Las Vegas, among other locations. His favorite vacations were coming home to Wisconsin for Easter with his family and celebrating his mother’s birthday with gambling at the casinos with her and his sisters.
