After a six year battle with prostate cancer, Lynn Carson passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on February 7, 2013. He was born in Ft. Worth on September 19, 1946 to Walter Pierce Carson and Edna Marie Wilson Carson. Lynn was a graduate of Haltom High School and Texas Christian University, where he played baseball on a scholarship. He spent his career in sales and management with Hobbs Trailers, Ryder Truck Leasing, and Paccar, Inc. Anyone who knew Lynn knew he was an avid sports lover. He saw the Cowboys play their first year in the Cotton Bowl and was a loyal fan win or lose; he watched every pitch of every Texas Rangers game; he also love Dirk and his Mavericks. His favorite college team of course was his beloved TCU Horned Frogs, wearing his purple every game day. If he wasn’t watching sports, you could find him on the golf course. It didn’t matter where he and Pam lived in the country, there was always a planned trip to Ft. Worth to watch the Colonial Golf Tournament. Lynn loved his day at the movies seeing almost every new release for years. The loves of his life, however, were his family. He was very proud of each of them and didn’t hesitate to tell anyone who would listen.
He was preceded in death by his father, Walter “Shorty” Carson; and is survived by his adoring mother, Edna; his loving wife and best friend of 36 years, Pam; his three daughters, Ronda (Steve) Hornisher, Stephanie Romeo, and Crystal (Heath) Grant; his five grandchildren, Raegan Sims, Blake Carson Hornisher, Sydney and Taylor Romeo, and Case Grant; and brother-in-law, Greg Brown. We can’t forget his loving dogs, Sam and Sugar.
The family would like to thank Dr. Haskill (Gill) Kirkpatrick, Kathy, Amy, and the staff of Texas Oncology Presbyterian Dallas for providing such loving and personal care. We would also like to thank the staff of Faith Presbyterian Hospice for their compassionate care in his final days. Special thanks to the many friends who have supported and loved us through this journey.
A memorial service will be held Sunday, February 17, 2013 at 2 p.m. at the Robson Ranch Clubhouse, 9428 Ed Robson Circle, Denton TX. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to any cancer research foundation or animal rescue of your choice.
