David J. Carlson Obituary – Rockford Register Star

David J. Carlson, 42, of Rockford, died on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at his home. Born July 26, 1979, in Winfield, IL, the son of Bradley J. and Charlene J. (Larson) Carlson. David attended Guilford High School and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1999. He was an artistic and charismatic soul, who loved creating, growing and cooking with the help of others most recently. He enjoyed building Legos with his dad and their time together exploring trains and military history. He was a member of the IL Guardianship and Advocacy Council board where he was able to follow his passion to help other people with disabilities. The 4th of July was David’s favorite holiday, as he loved all things pyrotechnic. The computer was his connection to the world, but most of all David valued his time with friends and family. His renewed faith gave him strength to meet the challenges life brought and he generously shared that with others. Survived by his mother, Char; sister, Karin (Jason) Glenn; twin nieces, Emily and Jordan; and many aunts, uncles, cousins ​​and friends. A special thank you to Chris, Daniel, Tina, and Joe who shared a special bond together over the years. Predeceased by his father, Brad (March 2022).
