It is with heavy hearts that the Carlson Family must announce the passing of our beloved husband and father, Doug Carlson on Saturday, June 3rd. Doug was admitted to St. John's Hospital in Maplewood, MN on Friday, May 26th fighting extreme fatigue and pain. Known to some, but not all, Dad had been battling cancer for the past number of years. He passed surrounded by his family and we feel at peace knowing that he can now rest. We appreciate everyone's love, support, prayers, well-wishes, and shared memories.
