Carl was the son of the late Carl and Rose (Roche) Erlandson and was a lifelong resident of Hudson.

Carl graduated from Hudson High School in 1960. He was a produce manager at First National Grocery Store for 25 years and then at Donelan’s Supermarket in Littleton until his retirement in 2005. After he retired, he continued to work part time in the produce department at Stop and Shop Supermarket in Hudson.
Carl’s favorite times were those spent with his family, especially vacationing at Hampton Beach including their deep sea fishing excursions, the family cruise to Bermuda, and trips to Aruba and Hawaii. His family brought him so much happiness and he loved them more than anything in this world. He could not have been any prouder of his four grandchildren. We will all miss him dearly.
