Captain Carl J. Triebes, Jr. USN (Ret.) passed away on August 26, 2021 at his home in The Woodlands, Texas following a short battle with bone cancer. He was 86 years old.

Born in Pueblo, Colorado in 1935, he was the son of the late Carl J. Triebes and Lucille M. (Jones) Triebes. He graduated from Centennial High School, as did both of his parents, and attended Pueblo Junior College for one year prior to entering the United States Naval Academy.
