Harry V. Carlson was born on January 9, 1921 in Chicago, Illinois to Gustav and Alma (nee Verdelin) Carlson. He died Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at Rolling Hills Manor in Zion, Illinois. 

Mr. Carlson served as a medic in the US Army during World War II in the UK and France.  After returning to Chicago following the War, he worked as a butcher and married his beloved wife Evelyn in 1948.  That same year, he started Skandia Foods, Inc., a specialty food import and distribution company.  Along with his partners, he grew the business in Chicago and Arlington Heights until his retirement in 1986.  During his retirement, Harry enjoyed golfing as he was able, spending time with his friends and family, and traveling whenever possible to Florida, Wisconsin, and New England, as well as several trips to Europe.  

Harry is survived by his brother-in-law, Kenneth (Susan) Bergquist; his nephew Neil (Trina) Bergquist and his great-nephew Henning Bergquist and close family friends Brian, Carolyn, Madison and William Hervat.
