PLYMOUTH – Karl I. Braun Sr., 95 of Plymouth, died peacefully on November 8, 2019 with his family by his side. He has gone to be with God.
He was the loving husband of Alice (Chaves) Braun for 66 years. Alice died 6 years ago and has been missed every day since. They were soulmates and their love served as an inspiration to their entire family.
Karl graduated from the Quincy School System in June of 1941. After graduation he joined the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps). When WWII started, he and 2 of his friends went to Boston to enlist in the Marines but were told that at 17 years of age they were too young. The 3 friends then went down the street and joined the Navy.

In WWII, he served aboard the USS Montpelier CL-57 and was awarded the Victory Medal, American Area Ribbon, Asiatic Pacific Ribbon 9 Stars, Philippine Liberation Ribbon 1 star, and Good Conduct Medal. During the Korean War he served on the USS Kula Gulf CVE 108.
Karl loved keeping busy and spending time with his family. He and Alice traveled all over the world and loved every minute of it. Karl will be greatly missed by his family and friends. He was the loving father of Karl Braun Jr. and his wife Lisa of Plymouth, Ken Braun and his wife Mary of Lutherville, MD, and Kathy Sotomayor of Venice, Florida. He was a loving grandfather and will be greatly missed by his 9 grandchildren: Kristin DiObilda (with husband Pete and great-granddaughter Nora), Kevin Braun, Ken Braun, Jackie Dressel (with husband Del and great-grandson Jackson), Kendal Murk (with husband Rob), Jorge Sotomayor, Daniel Sotomayor (with wife Jessica), Christopher Braun and Andrew Braun. He is survived by 1 brother David of the Portland, Maine area. He was preceded in death by his sister Ruth and his brother Donal.

I was just a kid when my sister, Alice and Karl got married. They lived upstairs in my parents house. Karl was so good to me. He taught me how to ice skate and we use to go skating on Becky’s pond. He will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace. Love Joyce and Denis.

Dear Karl and Lisa, You, and all of those Karl’s Dad loved, are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time. With Sympathy, Michael and Mary Jane Donelan
