Bob Carlson Memorial & Support Fund

Bob was a wonderful husband to our mother, the best dad we could ask for and a "dad," brother, coach, and great friend to many more. In the early afternoon of Friday, January 2, 2015, after a month long battle with double pneumonia, he collapsed in my and my brother’s arms and tragically passed away late Friday evening from congestive heart failure.

For so many, he gave himself and gave resources, even if it meant neglecting his own financial needs. 

This fundraiser is to simply lay our father to rest, and to provide for household expenses.  If more is raised, it will simply support my mother as she enters this sudden and unexpected chapter in our family’s life.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, as we appreciate every donation.
