(a note from the artists wife, Anita K. (Bunn) Carlson,  published on Facebook October 10, 2013)

    Gary left us last night to wing his way to Science Care in Colorado. He will be missed greatly but leaves us with fond memories that will always make us smile. If he made you smile, tip a glass in his memory. He did it his way and had a pretty darn good life. And now, his self authored obituary:

     Gary L. Carlson, 66, died October 9, 2013 at home after a not particularly courageous battle with rheumatoid arthritis and lung cancer.  In accordance with his wishes there will be no funeral or calling hours, his body will be chopped up for medical research and donation.

     He was born June 28, 1947 to Pat and Fay Carlson in Minneapolis Minnesota. He attended Roosevelt  High School in Minneapolis and Portland State University in Portland, Oregon.  An army veteran, he attained the storied rank of E-4 during his military service. Know to many as "Pa", which he didn't like, he tended bar for 27 years at the Side Show, making many cherished friends over the years. He was the creator and curator of the Side Show Metropolitan Museum and had great fun taking people on tours of the studio art there. In his spare time he avoided playing euchre, golf and bowling.

     A lifelong atheist, he managed to live a life of honor and integrity (or so he thought) without fairy-tale promises of reward or threats of punishment.  Predeceased by Christopher Hitchens, Elvis and several thousand others. Survived by Anita, his pretty wife and stalwart friend of 40 years, sister Marian Anderson, daughters Heidi LeMaire, Angela Liberatore, Sonya (Josh) Kerlan, grandchildren Mia, Sam, Madison, Elle and Boo the cat.
