James B Carlson
June 25, 1946 - July 3, 2019
James Carlson from La Villa paid off his farm some years ago and bought another on July 3, 2019.
Jimmy was born on June 25, 1946, to loving parents Byron & Kathryne Carlson. After finally getting his act together and graduating from Texas A&M with a degree in Entomology he was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Navy and graduated from flight school
becoming an aviator. Post Navy service Jimmy returned to La Villa where he farmed for many years.
He is preceded in passing by his parents.
He is survived by his sisters Janet Carlson and Ellen (Dennis)
Huber; by his sons Jason and Aaron; his grandson Tripp and cousin Ronnie.
Jimmy is now at peace stompin' cotton amongst the clouds.
As flowers wither and die like the rest of us, please, please, PLEASE do not send any. A contribution to
any concern and/or charity of your choice would more than suffice, such as the Aurora House, 2646 W 18th st., Weslaco, TX, 78596.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 20th, 2019, 10 am at McCaleb Funeral Home in Weslaco.
Services have been entrusted to McCaleb Funeral Home of Weslaco, TX.
