Carl Abbott, 87, of Lynn, beloved husband of the late Molly Abbott, lost his battle with cancer at the Kaplan hospice house on 8/1/19. Born in Claremont NH, son of the late Ernest and Clover Abbott, Carl moved to Lynn as a young boy with his two brothers, the late, George and Ernest Abbott.
Carl joined the Coast guard at 17 and went into the US Airforce 3 years later, where he fought in the Korean War. He retired his career as a talented machinist and started a new career as a fitness trainer that would span over 25 years. He helped change the lives of many and was a great influence and coach to those lucky enough to have him.
Carl also played softball until he was 85, and would’ve played to the end if it wasn’t for the loss of team members.
Carl is survived by his two daughters Beverly Abbott of Lynn and Leslie Abbott of Amesbury, his step children Michael Margolis, Mark and Patty Margolis and family and Nancy Andrews and family.
He also leaves his grandchildren Brad and Alison Efstratios, the late Glenn Moody, April Moody and great grandchild Amelia Ciampoli as well as many nieces and nephews. His memorial Graveside Service will take place on Thursday August 8, 2019 at 11:00 AM in Pine Grove Cemetery Lynn with Military Honors. We will meet inside the Main Gate on Boston Street at 10:45. Assisting the family with arrangements is the Nadworny Funeral Home 798 Western Ave. Lynn, MA. 01905.
