Condolence & Memory Journal

My condolences to the entire Carlson family. Bill was a great guy! Loved seeing the pictures with the bibs. Seems like every time I saw him, he was wearing bibs!

Kathy, I just found out about Bill's passing. I was shocked. I can remember like it was yesterday that I meet Bill and Pete in 1974. We quickly became friends. Bill was always my go to guy at Nipsco. I will always remember the good times. If there is anything you need just ask. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Kathy and family, shocked to hear of Bill's passing. He always had something funny to say, and when he wasn't talking he had a sly grin on his face! He will truly be missed by his family, friends, and communities in Lowell and Rockville. Peaceful rest, dear Bill.

We are so, so sorry to hear about Bill. We just loved running into you both...Bill was always so funny. Over the years I've thought about him often when I plug something into an outlet. I'll always remember his smirky smile every time I added an outlet when we did a walk through our house under construction. He was a great electrician and a great guy. Prayers and hugs to you and your family, Kathy.
