He leaves to mourn his sudden passing, a son, and daughter; Mrs Olven Nelson, who has been his housekeeper since the death of his wife in 1938, and a son, Galen of Minneapolis; five brothers, Edwin, Raymond, Gustave, Rudolph and Godfred; one sister, Mrs Nils Anderson.
Mr. Carlson was a good citizen, and splendid neighbor. He served faithfully and well as caretaker of the Mona Lutheran church for 27 years.
