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.

I was deeply saddened to learn of Jim's passing. My sympathy goes out to his family, Janet, Elllen, and his sons and grandchildren.
We were friends from 1st grade on. After graduating from EE High we went to A&I, but lost touch after military service. We occasionally hunted doves in the fall. Lots of good memories. We spoke infrequently by phone, but always remained friends. We greeted one another with "Como esta, amigo" So now I'll sign off with "Adios amigo. Vaya con dios".
