Obituary for Don F. Carlson

Avid Hunter, Boater, and Fisherman

Don passed away peacefully at his home Sunday, February 25, 2018. He was born July 12, 1939.

Don graduated from South High and attended the University of Utah where he met his 1st wife, Pearl Shaffer. Pearl and Don had 3 children together: Deborah, Christeen & Stephen. Later he divorced and married Ann Thiriot. Together they had a son, Shawn.

He was preceded in death by his father, Burt Carlson; his mother, Donna White; his brother, Dale White; and his daughter, Deborah Householder. He is survived by his brother, Kendall Carlson; his wife, Ann Carlson; his daughter, Christeen Carlson; his sons, Stephen Carlson and Shawn Carlson; 15 Grandchildren; and 13 Great-Grandchildren.

Don was a hard worker. He enjoyed a 50-year career as a master offset pressman. Don’s greatest memories were the times he spent bowling, hunting, fishing, camping and boating with his closest family and friends. He had a green thumb and loved growing and tending to his great tomato garden while reminiscing with neighbors, friends and family on the front porch. He later became an avid bird watcher while building jigsaw puzzles and watching sports.
