Robert Francis Carson

April 5, 1934 — January 14, 2023

Parkville

Robert Frances Carson, 88, of Towson passed away on January 14. 
Mr. Carson was born on April 5, 1934 in Buffalo, NY to his parents Harold and Louise Carson. 
Mr. Carson grew up in Buffalo and graduated from the University of Buffalo with a teaching degree and served in the U.S. Army as a medic. He spent much of his life teaching physical education in Baltimore County. 
Truly passionate about fitness and the outdoors, Mr. Carson dedicated much of his free time to cycling, hiking, canoeing, skiing and traveling. For many years, he headed up the Mountain Club of Maryland and the Baltimore Cycling Club and served as the routerist for Cycle Across Maryland. He was well known in the community as the man with the white beard who rode his recumbent bike all around Baltimore County. 
Fondly nicknamed, “Uncle Funny” for his hearty laugh and silly jokes, Mr. Carson was active and lively even in his later years. Shortly before he passed away, Mr. Carson was the life of the party at a holiday party for the Baltimore Cycling Club. 
Mr. Carson is survived by his sisters Mary Lou Wilson and Jeanne Tate, and their husbands and children, as well as his sister-in-law Denise Carson. 
He was preceded in death by his parents Harold and Louise Carson and his brother Donald Carson.  
The family will receive friends from 11:30 am - 12 pm on Saturday, March 11, 2023, at Bast-Stauffer Funeral Home, P.A. 7606 Old National Pike, Boonsboro, MD where a celebration of Robert's life journey will take place at 12 pm. Rev. Tim May will officiate.  Interment will be private. A private reception for family will take place at the American Legion in Boonsboro immediately following the service.
