Carl was born in St. Louis, Missouri, on August 2, 1943, a son of the late Carl C. Westemeyer, Sr. & Dorothy (Schwartz) Marsch. He was also raised in south St. Louis, and it was there that he soon found a passion for Cardinal baseball. Growing up watching the Cardinal greats including Stan Musial, Tim McCarver, Bob Gibson, Curt Flood, Lou Brock, and many others, he often later told stories of memorable baseball moments including his visits to the 1964 and 1967 World Series.

Carl met Dorothy Pfautsch, of Berger, MO, in 1967 and they married the next year. They adopted their only child, Charles, in 1975. Carl was a strong family man known for his jovial spirit and keen sense of humor. He was beloved by family, friends, and co-workers.
