Brian Carlson Obituary, Death – On March 21, 2023, at the age of 58, Brian P. Carlson lost his battle with disease and died away in the comfort of his own home. Although he was reared in Paxton, he was born in Worcester. In his latter years as an adult, he made the move to Chatham. He is survived by his mother Sandra Koski and her husband John “Jack” Koski of Chatham, Massachusetts; his sister Jill Erickson, her husband Brad and their daughter Jinean, Brian’s niece; all of whom reside in Jefferson, Massachusetts; and his cousin Melanie Mader of Paris, Kentucky.
All of these individuals are members of Brian’s immediate family. Additionally, he will be parting ways with his close pals, all of whom he loved very much. His father, Paul Carlson, who was from Eastham, his uncle Alden Carlson, who was from Worcester, and his uncle Bradley Mader, who was from Shrewsbury, were among the people who passed away before him. Brian was the epitome of the emotional kind.
He was privileged to have had two devoted canine companions throughout the years who traveled everywhere with him and he valued all of the wonderful moments that he shared with his family, friends, and canine buddies. Paxton is where Brian spent his childhood. After receiving his diploma from WRHS in 1982, he enrolled in QCC and later found employment as a mechanic in Greendale.
Every summer, the family vacationed in Eastham, where they had a ton of fond recollections from their time there. In the end, he uprooted his life and traveled to Chatham, where his mother was residing, and began working as a lobster fisherman alongside Jack.
Throughout the years, he also engaged in activities such as fishing and carpenter labor. He had a lot of fun hanging out with his friends and watching games of the Patriots and the Red Sox as well as playing cards. Because he was such a prankster and couldn’t say no to a good tease, he made it a rule that everyone had to have a moniker. He delighted in making other people giggle.
In addition to that, he liked taking photographs, preparing meals, and spending time with his dogs. His premature demise has left all of us with deep regret, and he will be remembered fondly by a great number of people. I have no doubt that we will, just as he often said to his loved ones who had passed on before him, “I’ll see you on the other side!” We have so much love and respect for you, Brian.
