Lee F. Carlsen, 72 years.  Beloved father of Erin (Keith) Gonsowski, Kevin (Dana) Carlsen, and Lisa (Patrick) Kohlstedt.  Loving grandfather of Jonathan, Grace, Jillian, Steven, and Erica.  Dear brother of JoAnn (Rich) Schreiber.  Fond uncle of Judy, Jimmy, Annette, Lori, and (late) Bobby. Loyal member of Local Union 701. Proud Director of American Lawmen Motorcycle Club. 
Lee, better known as Dusty, Diesel, or Double D, enjoyed life when he was fishing (esp at Deer Lake, MN), camping on the Minnesota/Canada border, riding his motorcycle with the club and in Sturgis, playing a good card game (Thursday poker night at the club and anything at Vegas), soaking up the sun anywhere, teaching his grandkids to count by playing blackjack, hanging out with good friends at the club, and loved drinking a cold beer and his favorite VO while hanging out with family and friends. He also took pride getting a good deal on anything and was never shy to use expired coupons. He was forever greatful to his late nephew Bobby (Bubbles) for sponsoring him into the American Lawmen Motorcycle Club 17 years ago. 
We love you forever and we’ll miss you, Dad!
