Kevin Raymond Carlson, of Frederick, Maryland, passed suddenly from this life on Wednesday, June 24, 2020.
Born on March 7, 1988, in Washington, DC, he was the son of Craig Carlson and Michelle Carlson Ballantine.
He graduated Walkerville High School in 2006 and was a huge part of the Walkersville High School Soccer Team and also played for the Frederick County Soccer Club.
He worked at Quality Car Services in Rockville, Maryland. He wore many hats and was always up for a challenge, he could accomplish anything he put his mind to. His generous heart and spirit was always there to support his friends and family. He had the largest, brightest smile that would light up a room. Anyone that met him walked away a better person just from having met him. Kevin also had a very artistic side, his talents were endless, he loved to draw but especially loved pottery and loved to surprise his family with cooking a meal for them. His family and friends meant the world to him and he will be terribly missed.
