Robert C. Carlson Jr., Siemon Company vice president, 1967-2018

Sept. 4, 2018
Carlson, who was a member of Siemon Company’s board of directors, battled pancreatic cancer.

Robert Carlson, who served as vice president of global marketing for the Siemon Company and was a member of the company’s board of directors, passed away on August 31 after a year-plus battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 51.

Carlson’s obituary details his personal and professional achievements. It states that his son, Robert S. Carlson, is now employed by Siemon.

“Through work, he travelled the world and met co-workers that in turn became close friends and family,” the obituary says. “It was at the Siemon Company that he became the lead singer of the company band, River Mud.”

Carlson authored several articles for Cabling Installation & Maintenance over a number of years, including “Buying American a stimulus provision and an act of wisdom” in 2010; “Advanced cabling solutions enhance emergency operations” in 2012; “Progressive technology on exhibit at iconic art museum” in 2013; and “L.A. Dodgers hit a home run with cabling upgrade” in 2014.

His obituary asked that, in lieu of flowers, concerned individuals consider making a donation to Carlson’s house of worship, First Congregational Church of Torrington, CT, or to the Muscular Dystrophy Association for Duchenne Research.
