Dates of existence



Robert C. E. Carlson (1925-2008) was born in Providence, RI, and as a youngster learned to sail on
Narragansett Bay. He served in the US Navy as an aviation cadet from 1943-1946, and met his future
wife while stationed at Glenview Naval Air Station. Upon release from active duty, he married Grace
Ann Good (1923-2010) and they established their home in the northern suburbs of Chicago. They
raised four sons and had homes in Deerfield, Highland Park, Deerfield, Bannockburn, Diamond Lake, and
Wildwood. They were members of NSYC from about 1952 until about 1960. He made a career as a
carpenter and general contractor, and was highly respected throughout the northern suburbs for the
quality of his work. His outside interests were photography, fishing and aviation, and he was a longtime
member of Saint Gregory's Episcopal Church in Deerfield and the Northbrook Rotary Club.
