Marion Carlson: 1920-2019

Aug 14, 2019

Marion Carlson, 99, of Everett, WA, went to be with the Lord on July 15, 2019. Marion was born on June 12, 1920, in Bladen, NE. He married Wilma Booker on December 24, 1939, and they moved with their four children to Washington State in 1949. There, they embarked on many adventures together and owned several small businesses, including a Zestos on Eastlake, a motel in Sultan, and a boutique in Ballard. They lived and worked at Lake Quinault Lodge for a while, and traveled to Arizona many times during the winter months. They especially enjoyed cruising to Alaska.

Marion served in WWII aboard LST 574 in the Pacific as a Gunners Mate (Seaman 1st Class). He was honorably discharged shortly after his third child was born. He lived a full life and enjoyed camping, volunteer work, and spending time with family playing cards and board games. His smile was contagious, and he knew how to tell a great story. Marion touched so many lives and will be missed very much.

Marion was survived by his 4 children: Carolyn Davis, Stanley Carlson, Marilyn Porter, and Linda Gibler. He had 14 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

Marion was preceded in death by Wilma, his loving wife of 69 years, his grandson William, and his grandson Tony.

A private family ceremony took place on July 20th.

Thank you to the staff at Chateau Pacific and Kaiser Hospice for the love and care they gave to him.

2 Timothy 4:7: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
