Jerry Carlson

Thursday, May 24, 2018

Gerald Stanley Carlson, 79, passed away in his sleep on Sunday, May 20, 2018.  He was born March 3, 1939 to Stanley and Anne Carlson in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  

On Dec. 28, 1961, he married Julia Warner in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Jerry loved his family, as well as all the animals in his life.  His passions included good friends, funny stories, wellbuilt houses and vanilla Oreo double-stuff cookies.

 Survivors include his wife Julia of Red Lodge; his son Jerry W. Carlson of Richmond, Virginia and daughter Janney Carlson of Red Lodge; his grandchildren Jerry L. Carlson of San Jose, California and Jenny Carlson of Brooklyn, New York; his sister, Dianne Kimber of Tonka Bay, Minnesota; as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

 He was preceded in death by his parents and his son, Chuck Carlson.

 No public services are planned at this time.  In lieu of flowers or donations, the family asks that you simply remember Jerry in a way that that would have made him laugh.
