February 16, 1955August 8, 2019

RONALD J. CARLSON, 64 of Auburn Hills, MI passed away on August 8, 2019. He was born in Moline, IL and attended Zweibrucken High in Germany, a school primarily for dependents of Department of Defense personnel working overseas. Like his father, Jean R. Carlson, Ron worked for the Department of Defense at the US Army Tank-Automotive Command in Warren, MI. Although he suffered from many chronic health problems since his first heart attack in April 1996, he never complained or indulged in self-pity. He was a devoted partner to his wife ‘Chiko’ and had a special place in his heart for the suffering of others. We will miss his edgy sense of humor and his quiet, gentle spirit.

He was married to ‘Chiko’ on April 14, 1984 and was preceded in death by his parents, Jean and Kitty. He is survived by his wife; Sachiko Shohara Carlson, siblings; Catherine D. Carlson, Bret M. Carlson (Michelle), Patricia M. Masiello (Curtis) as well as several nieces and nephews.

After organ donation has been completed, he will be cremated and later interred in the family plot at Resurrection Cemetery. Interment will be postponed until the death of his wife when they will be interred together.
