William D. Carlson, 86
Died Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017

William Darrell Carlson, 86, passed away Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017 at St. Mary's Care Center in Winsted.

A celebration of life will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, at the South Haven Town Hall in South Haven. Private interment will be this coming spring at the Hector City Cemetery, Hector.

Memorials are preferred to the Alzheimer's Association or the American Heart Association.

William is survived by his wife, Lois; children, Sonja Carlson of St. Paul, Joyce Miceli of Annandale, Rebecca (Lee) Titrud of Cokato, Laurie (Larry) Smith of Howard Lake, Melodee Pineiro of Bedford, Texas, Craig Carlson of Hutchinson, Richard (Amy) Carlson of Dassel and Paul Carlson of Spicer; 16 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren; siblings, Ila Mae Weis, Carol Dill, Darwin Carlson and Darlene Gentry; and other relatives.

He was preceded in death by his parents; siblings, Arvin, Delpha, Glen, Dale, Verne, Doris and Dorathy.

Bill was born Sept. 2, 1931, in Pocahontas, Iowa to Harry and Hattie (Harriet Lambertson) Carlson, the sixth of 12 children.

In 1941, the Carlsons moved to Hector where Bill helped on the family farm and attended high school, graduating in 1950. He was active in FFA, sports, band and developing his lifelong love of music. Bill married Lois Lindekugel in 1952 and they were blessed with eight children. They lived in several Minnesota communities until Bill's retirement, when they settled south of Annandale.

Bill was employed as a machinist and welder. He was known as a hard worker, who took pride in what he built. Other hobbies included wood working, gardening and genealogy. Bill also enjoyed western movies and was a John Wayne fan. His interest in music included classical, big band marches, ballads, and in later years he was especially fond of Celtic music which seemed comforting to him as he struggled with Alzheimer's and complications after his stroke.

Bill will be remembered for being a loving husband, father, grandfather and having a "green thumb." He had a delightful and dry sense of humor.
