January 13, 1956 – July 3, 2018
It is with great sadness that these words are written. The family of Jeff Carlson wishes to announce his passing after a sudden and swift battle with cancer, at the age of 62.
Jeff will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Elaine, his children, Greg (Kayla) and Shayla (Sean) and especially by his two grandchildren, Abigail and Raiden. He will also be forever missed by his siblings, Jen (Kris), Kurt, Mark (Jackie) and Wayne (Tracey). Not to mention numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
Jeff moved to Prince Rupert in 1986 and started to work at the Pulp Mill. Soon, he started B.C. Style Fishing Charters and continued his love of fishing for the next 30 years. In 2004, Jeff started his own business, J&E’s Tackle. Jeff enjoyed fishing, hunting and golfing. He was a proud member of the Prince Rupert Lions Club and the Moose dart league as well. The annual Blue Knuckle Derby combined two favourites for Jeff – fishing and a Lions’ charity event.
We invite family and friends to a Celebration of Life, to be held at the Moose Hall, Prince Rupert, BC, Saturday August 11, 2018. The program will start at 1 pm with snacks and refreshments until 4 pm.
In lieu of flowers there will be a charity announced at a later time.
