Paul “Bud” Carson passed away peacefully at home on November 20, 2020 surrounded by family. It is believed it was caused by his desire to feed treats to dogs long passed, eat donuts without regard, and to prevent hearing any more comments about turning up his hearing aid.
He leaves behind a loving family, of which he was very proud.
If you were lucky enough to know Bud, you loved him. In case you didn’t, here are a few important things to note….
He was a proud fan of the Yankees, the Colts, Notre Dame, and the Indy 500, though he wasn’t shy about “coaching” them from the couch when he felt compelled.
He loved everything Christmas – the lights, the decorations, the music and the movies (which he watched year-round). His favorite movie, A Christmas Story, highlighted his fondness for using four-letter words… ohhhhh fuuddgge.
He was notorious for being a dog whisperer. He was always the favorite of our furry friends, likely because he constantly shared his snacks and carried a pocket full of dog treats.
Of all the people that loved Bud, he most loved his wife, Audrey “Nita” Carson. They lived a thousand years in their 58 calendar years of marriage, enduring the ups and downs together. Nothing in this life is perfect, but their love for each other and their family is as close as it gets.
He will be sorely missed and is survived by his children, Steve, Mike (Myra), Gary (Jan), Kelle (Dan), and Ashley; grandchildren, Ali (DJ), Rob, Katie (Ethan), David, Paul, and Chloe; greatgrandchild, Tessa; brothers, Jim (Sandy) and Tom (Mary); and extended family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Dess; his grandchildren, Morgan and Fletcher; and beloved pets, Spanky, Pinky, and Bob.
He will always be remembered for his kindness, orneriness, wit, and most importantly, his love.
In memory of Paul “Bud” Carson, please give generously to:
A Celebration of Life will be announced and held at a later date.
Please note Bud’s change of address, Calvary Cemetery, 435 West Troy Avenue, Indianapolis, Indiana 46225.
