Richard's Carlson Cousins

July 1, 2020

Richard was a true bright spot in the lives of all eight of his Carlson cousins as we were growing up. Although our ages cover a wide range - from just a bit younger than Richard to more than 20 years his junior - we all have fond memories of our time with him - White Sox, Milwaukee Braves, and, especially, Cubs, games, helping out around Northfield Heating together, and a wide variety of family gatherings all gave us the chance to spend time with him that we value now more than ever. Thanks for those memories, Richard - we miss you a lot.
