Michael Wayne Carlson

August 7, 1960 — September 28, 2023

Michael Wayne Carlson (Mike) lost his battle with cancer on September, 28th 2023 at his home
in Lakeside, Az at the age of 63.

Mike was born on August 7, 1960 in Frankfurt, Germany to Mick and Winnie Carlson, while his
Dad served in the Army there, along with Elvis Presley. (Mike always liked for people to know
that part, lol.)

He was absolutely adored by his children; Chrissy(Billy), John(Maria), Aaron(Ania), Airica(Guy),
Andrew. The loss of “Papa” will be forever felt by his grandchildren; Blakely, Aiden, Isaac,
Bianca, Courtney, Corbin, Reagan, Thomas, Emily, Makayla, Cody, Dylan, Noah (who shares a
birthday with his papa), Nehemiah, Tristan, Alina, Amalia.

He has the best of the best siblings; Monty, Gina, Tina, Brenda, Lisa, Eddie, Ann, Mitch, John.
Who all looked up to and adored him.

He was walked through his life by his two ex wives, who took care of him to the end; Vicki
Mettie-Carlson and Denise Albo.

He touched so many people with his lively spirit and oh so animated stories. His storytelling was
always the highlight of the hour no matter where he was, making anyone around him laugh,
including himself. He could build anything, he could catch the biggest fish and he was never
wrong about anything… Just ask him :)

He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, sister Gina and many friends and
family. We know that he was met at the gates of Heaven by all, ready to party.
Mike went out as a legend, a hero, a fighter… The strongest man to have ever lived in the eyes
of his children, family and friends.

A celebration of life will be held for both Mike and his Dad, Mick Carlson, at “The Chimneys” off
of Porter Mtn Rd on Saturday, October 7th at 2pm. Everyone is welcome.
