This week Carl Cantaluppi, our former Area Horticulture Agent for Granville / Person Counties, passed away. Our prayers go out to his wife Ruth and family. Carl was an excellent agent working for K State, Oklahoma State, Illinois, and Ohio Extensions before joining NC State Extension. He had an amazing and well-rounded horticulture knowledge. He was the leading expert on asparagus in the USA and maybe even the world. Clients contacted him from all over the USA on asparagus.

When I first moved to North Carolina, Carl and Ruth had me over for dinner and we talked about Extension. Carl was published many times in his career on asparagus. Carl wrote Extension bulletins, books, and presentations on asparagus. If you type in “Carl Cantaluppi Asparagus Man” in Google there is a 2012 PBS program on Carl’s work. Carl will not be forgotten – his publications are a legacy to his work. I am proud to call Carl my friend and co-worker. He will be missed.
