ROTARY: Carroll Anderson

Fellow Rotarians,

You may remember PDG Laurie Carlson-Anderson as being a close friend of our own Sam Pierce’s family.  Please read on for sad news on the passing of her husband, Carroll.  ~KNS

Dear Rotarians,

It is with much sadness that I forward the message below on to you. It was received here at the District Office on Wednesday Jun 20th. Carroll Anderson, husband of PDG Laurie Carlson-Anderson passed away on Tuesday evening with PDG Laurie by his side. I have spoken to Laurie today and she is doing well despite the circumstances. Laurie is planning on having a Celebration of Life for Carroll in July in the Portland area and will advise us of the details as the time draws near. She will be having a Celebration of Life in the Seattle area on Friday June 29th, at the Meydenbauer Bay Yaucht Club at 1pm. She has said that she does not want anyone to feel obligated to attend as she feels this location is out of the way. I am sure you will all join with me in thoughts and prayers for Laurie during this difficult time.

Dearest Friends:  Tonight at 7:30PM Carroll passed away.  He was sleeping peacefully and his two children and myself were with him.  We are thankful that he is now in a better place but so sad to lose him.  I will let you know further details when I know more tomorrow.  Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and support.  JR is flying here tonight from Portland to be with Carrolls family and myself.  Love, Laurie
