Marion, North Carolina


John Franklin Carson was born on Monday, March 13, 1961, the eighth child of eleven siblings who later became the father of three amazing children.
He was an avid fisherman, hunter, master cook, phenomenal artist/painter, storyteller, overall fixer of a myriad of things and one of the best humans to grace this planet.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Martin and Francis Carson, brothers: Lionel, Darrell, Kevin, and Stanley, as well as his son, Austin and grandson, Ashton.
He leaves behind son, Barrett with grandsons, Elijah and Kaiis - - daughter, Neva with grandchildren, Corteze, Angel, Austin, Jeremiah and A.J. - brothers:  William (wife, Elke); Dean (wife, Gloria); Carlton (wife, Crystal), along with Sisters: Marilyn (husband, Ken), Frieda (husband, Nelson) and Annette (fiancé, Gary) and numerous nieces/nephews, great nieces/nephews and a host of cousins.  We would also like to give an extra warm thank you for the love/life he shared with his Father and Mother-in-Law, James and Patricia Dickson. 
Words cannot express the pain left in the hearts of John's family and friends, but we are comforted in knowing we have another strong advocate as our ancestor.
THANK YOU JOHN for sharing your life, love and laughter with us.  So long, until we meet again. - Death: Monday, March 20, 2023.
