of the Town of Wheatfield, NY, passed away on Friday, March 23, 2018, surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with ALS.      Jon was born in Lake City, MN, on December 5, 1958, the son of Jean M. [Copp] Carlson and the late Ralph D. Carlson.   

Jon moved to the Western New York area in 1993 and was the Director of Respiratory Care at South Buffalo Mercy Hospital since 2000.  He loved spending time with his family, enjoyed camping, DIY projects and was an avid sportsman.

Friends may call on Monday, April 2, 2018 from 3-7 PM at the RHONEY FUNERAL HOME, 5893 Hoover Road, SANBORN, NY with Funeral Services to follow at 7:00 PM.
