Obituary

Edward A. Carlson, Sr. (Al to most) passed away on Sunday, November 8, 2020 at his residence in Quakertown, PA. He was 69

Born in Philadelphia, PA to the late Eric and Bertha (Herberg) Carlson, Edward lived in the Olney section of Philadelphia, before moving to Cheltenham where he graduated from Cheltenham High School. He received an associate degree from Montgomery County Community College. After starting a family, he moved to Warminster, PA where he resided for 34 years before moving to Quakertown one year ago.

He worked as an executive officer for the Heintz Corporation, an aircraft engine manufacturing company for over 25 years, until becoming a kitchen and bath designer for over 15 years until his retirement. Edward was a proud Little League coach for the Olney Midget Teen League, as well as Warminster Baseball. He was a die-hard Eagles fan and spent nearly every Sunday with his children watching the game. His favorite vacation spot was Ocean City, New Jersey where he never went a day without eating his favorite Mack and Manco pizza for lunch. He was also an animal lover, aside from his many pets, he spent many days feeding the squirrels, deer, birds, and chipmunks that shared his property. He also spent time by volunteering at the Warminster Volunteer Fire Department for many years. He was a member of the Ancient Scottish Rite of Philadelphia, and the Free and Accepted Masons with Concordia Lodge #67 of Jenkintown.

Edward was the beloved husband of Linda (Swenk) Carlson for 34 years; cherished father of Lisa Decanzio (Richard), Bonnie Carlson (Luis Carrasquillo Jr) and Edward Carlson Jr.; loving brother of Eric Carlson (Lauralyn); and grandfather of Julian Decanzio.

A viewing will be held for Edward on Friday, November 13, 2020 at the Varcoe-Thomas Funeral Home of Doylestown, PA, from 9:00-11:00am. A graveside will follow at 11:45am at the Hillside Cemetery of Roslyn, PA.
