Karl William Black
Weatherford, TX.-On the early morning of October 16, 2020, Karl William Black passed away. Karl was in hospice slowly declining after multiple injuries which stemmed from car accidents and a lifetime of training horses. Karl was a American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) Judge and trained horses in both California and Texas. Karl’s passion was training Handicapped children to safely ride and appreciate horses. Karl was 75 years old. Survivors: mother, Mary Berra Black, siblings, Kathy Barchyn, Paul Black, John Black, Sid Black, Phil Black and a life long friend Lacey Lamance who was with Karl through this terrible ordeal. A Celebration of Karl’s Life will be held at San Fernando Mission Cemetery at a future date.

  2. Prayers of comfort in this time of loss to the family and karls many friends. I know i would not be the horseman I am today had I not met karl almost 13 years ago. He taught me things about horses i never knew. He was not only my trainer,he was my friend. RIP cowboy. You will be missed by all the folks lives you touched.

  3. Karl made a difference in so many people’s lives and was a wonderful soul. Our paths crossed through horses and I admired him immensely in his horsemanship skills and dedication to the animals. As only a fellow horse lover can understand Karl took this passion with him to Heaven and will be dearly missed. Ride free and forever old friend. You were loved more than you’ll ever know.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with Karl’s family and friends. I met Karl through Vicki Phelps the lady I take care of here in Springtown. He was such a kind gentleman with a heart of gold. He would come over and visit with us and we enjoyed his company. We miss you around here. The last time we saw him was right before he went to the nursing home. I found out by looking his name up. Hate to hear that he passed away. RIP Cowboys 🤠 You will be missed. 🐎
