Jonah Uriah Carlson, aged 39, of Brockway, died unexpectedly on the morning of Saturday, November 30, 2019 at the Carlson Family Hunting Camp near Weedville. Jonah was born on April, 5, 1980 in DuBois, PA son of the late Bill Carlson and Dorothy (Lundberg) Carlson of Brockway. Jonah was the husband of Ashleigh Bowser and the father of young daughters Addie and Megan.

Jonah lived a short, but full life-particularly as a devoted father to Addie and LaLa. He partnered with his father Bill in several businesses over the years. Jonah and his father often traveled with friends and relatives to a cabin in Colorado on summer vacations creating stories, on their own, of horses, trucks, dinners, and adventures that are now told as legend at family gatherings. In addition to his wife, his daughters, and his mother, Jonah is survived by brothers Richard (Judy) Heverley, Dubois, PA; Randy (Brenda) Heverley, Brockway, PA.; and Joel (Sara) Judice, Cortland, OH. Sisters Vickie Snedden, Rockton, PA; Darleen (Larry) Bortmas, Fowler, OH; Lori (Ken) Sheasley, Ridgway, PA; and Jessica (Jeff) Homady, Hastings, PA., and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.
