James Donald Bracken Carlon 1938 - 2023. Veteran, Business Owner & Deeply Involved in Community!

Arnold, CA...James Donald Bracken Carlon joined his wife in heaven March 18, 2023. Jim was born August 24, 1938 in Portland, Oregon to C.W. (Bill) Carlon and Bernadine (Bunny) Arnold-Carlon. He grew up in Eugene Oregon, Boise Idaho and moved to San Mateo, California in 1952. Jim graduated from San Mateo High School in 1956 and then attended the College of San Mateo. He was an Eagle Scout and continued to be very involved in the scouting program with his sons and grandsons.




Jim married the love of his life, Janice (Monahan) in 1960. He proudly served in the United States Coast Guard Reserve from 1956-1964. Jim worked for General Electric followed by a salesman for the family business C.A. Buck Morving and Storage in San Mateo. The Carlon’s moved to Fair Oaks, CA in January 1968 and Jim became the Northern California and Nevada Field Rep for Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. Jim and Janis then moved with their 4 children to Arnold in 1977 and opened Arnold Auto Supply.

Jim was a huge supporter of the Ebbetts Pass Community including a member and past president of the Arnold Rotary Club, founding member of the White Pines Park Committee, founding member of the Greater Arnold Business Association, Board member & past President of the Ebbetts Pass Veteran’s Memorial District, Elks Lodge Member, Cub and Scout Master, and a member of the Sons of the Desert Sonora Chapter (aka Laurel and Hardy Fan Club). He and his wife were the Grand Marshall of the Arnold Independence Day Parade 3 times.

Jim also loved stream fishing and fly fishing, especially on the Ebbetts Pass Corridor. He was a huge fan of Laurel & Hardy, and Red Skelton. He enjoyed traveling with his wife and exploring new places. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family.

Jim was proceeded in death by his parents Bill and Bunny Carlon, Brother Tom Carlon, and Wife Janice. He is survived by his 4 children Greg (Susan) Carlon, Tim (Sue) Carlon, Debbie (Jeff) Rocco, and Becky (Jim) Morales; as well as his younger sister Patricia (Al) Kushner. Jim was extremely proud of his 11 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren, and excited about the recent news of one more great-grand on the way.

The family will be holding a private memorial service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to White Pines Park Committee, PO Box 726, Arnold CA 95223. WhitePinesPark.com

Words can’t describe such an amazing human being. The last 21 years I have known him he was the most kind, honest, and hard working person I know. His deviation to help others is unimaginable. You will be missed! Condolences to the family, our town lost a very important member of its community

Mr. Carlon, I didn’t personally know you, but knew who you we’re, a veteran as well, you we’re a gentleman, raised your family to be responsible, honest, and hard working as well! We will all face our time, my hope is that the same can be said of us, the living! Your legacy in Arnold will live on!

Dear Carlon Family,

It was a honor to know Jim. His quiet example of a principled life well lived touched me deeply. In today's crazy world Jim's life spoke louder than a thousand sermons!

Knowing him made me want to be a better man.

Knew Jim in the wayback when we were both Arnold Rotarians and White Pines Park Committee members. He was creative and kind.
