Charles Alfred "Fred" Carlson, was born the first day of spring, March 20, 1946 in Richmond, Va., and left us on October, 15, 2020 peacefully at home in Ruckersville, Va., surrounded by family after a five year battle with cancer.

Fred was a lifelong hunter and fisherman. He also enjoyed playing golf at every opportunity. He grew up in the Northern Neck area, attending Old Dominion University after graduating from Lancaster High School. He was a member of Remo Hunt Club for many years before moving to Charlottesville in 2006 to work for Southern States. He took great pride in creating beautiful floral landscapes, along with fruit and vegetable gardens around his home.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Betty S. Carlson; and his children Dawn C. Trotter and husband Troy Trotter, Tiffany C. Vann and husband Troy Vann, and Joseph S. Carlson; his father Charles N. Carlson and mother Laverne Carlson; brothers Carl and Steve Carlson; sisters Renee Carlson-Coleman and Candy Carlson; two grandsons; and three great grandchildren.

There will be a celebration of life at 2 p.m. Saturday October 24, 2020 at Morattico Baptist Church, located at 924 Morattico Church Rd, Kilmarnock, VA 22482 .

In lieu of flowers we ask you choose a charity of your choice to support.
