Carl Frederick Henneberg was called home by his Heavenly Father peacefully at his residence on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at the age of 89 surrounded by his loving wife and family. He was the beloved husband of Janet Reisig Henneberg, to whom he was married for 68 years. He was a lifelong resident of the New Orleans area, a graduate of Warren Easton High School and Tulane University. Carl was a member of the US Navy and served his country during WWII. He was employed by Shell Oil Company, where he retired on July 31, 1989, after 34 years. He was a devout Lutheran at St John where he served on several church committees throughout the years. Carl was born on June 7, 1927. He loved tennis, golf, travel but more than anything he loved his faith, family and friends. He is survived by his wife, Janet, his son Carl, Jr. (Jill) and daughter Anne Henneberg Cueria (Brent). He is also survived by four grandchildren, Carl Henneberg, III, Jonathan Henneberg, Catherine Cueria and Caroline Cueria. He was preceded in death by his parents, Alma Kloor Henneberg and William Henry Henneberg, and his beloved brother William Henry Henneberg, Jr. To my children and grandchildren I wish you such good things. May you, every day, connect with the brilliancy of your own spirit and may you always remember that obstacles in the path are not obstacles, they ARE the path.
