Carl was born February 2, 1928 in Charleston, the only son of Orin Carlyle Kilpatrick and Mildred Boone Sires Kilpatrick. He graduated from Carlisle Military School, attended Furman University and studied photography In Washington, DC. After service in the Air Force, Carl worked as a photographer/cinematographer for Charleston local television stations, WCIV-TV and WCSC. For over 20 years, he was a cinematographer for the MUSC Audio visual Department. Of particular pride was his fifty years of filming Citadel football games, over 500 games, missing only two. He worked with six legendary head coaches and wowed alumni with his encyclopedic memory of each season. Known as the Iron Man for his dedication and stamina climbing the stairs to the press box into his 80's, he was honored with induction into the Citadel Athletic Hall of Fame.

Carl was an life time member of the James Island Yacht club, where he enjoyed regattas and sailing his Hobie Cat. Golf was a favorite activity, playing with his buddies several days a week, making at least three holes in one in his lifetime.

He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Roberta, two daughters, Lesley Scott ( Clifford), Susan Kilpatrick (Charles Norris); son, Carlyle Jagar Pat Kilpatrick, Jr. (Doreen) and four grandchildren, Ryan, Elizabeth, Zoe and Lian.

Though he has gone from us, the bond which unites our souls can never be severed.

Memorials may be made to Bethany Methodist Church, or the Charleston Animal Society.
