‘He was golden’: PJ killed in Iraq crash remembered as outdoorsman, loyal friend | Air Force Times

Staff Sgt. Carl Enis, one of seven airmen killed Thursday in a helicopter crash in western Iraq, was remembered as an avid outdoorsman and devoted friend who had a knack for bringing people from different backgrounds together.

Enis, a 31-year-old Air Force Reserve airman and pararescueman with the 308th Rescue Squadron, 920th Rescue Wing at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida, also worked as a commercial real estate salesman for TLG Real Estate Services in Tallahassee.

Ben Wilkinson, the president and co-owner of TLG, said in a Friday interview that when he met Enis four years ago, he was struck by what a “steady” and “solid guy” Enis was, and they quickly became close friends.

“He was golden,” Wilkinson said. “He was a great guy. Carl seemed to have met more people than you could ever imagine for someone his age. Honest to God, no one ever spoke an ill word about him.”
