It is with great sorrow that we acknowledge the death of William (Bill) James Carlon on July 2, 2015. A native of Lafayette, Bill was born on October 10, 1979. He graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in Computer Engineering and later received his MBA in business administration from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Bill’s career path included working for companies such as IBM, PHI, C&C Technologies and Tech Technology. He also owned his business, Personalized Automation and Computing Services.
He had a heart the size of Texas and as deep as the Gulf of Mexico. He shared his compassion, intelligence and generosity through his volunteer work with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana and he really looked forward to chaperoning on the yearly Honor Flight for World War II Veterans.
Bill is survived by his father, Robert (Bob) Carlon; his mother, Carolyn Blaize Vernon and his stepfather, Ian Robert Vernon and cousins. He is also survived by his Aggie Family whom he so loved. His birth family was small but his life family was enriched by his many friends of all ages.
A memorial service to honor the life of Bill Carlon will be held on Saturday, July 18, 2015. The 2:00 PM service will be at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 3001 Verot School Road, Lafayette, LA. A reception will follow in the church fellowship hall.
A memorial service will be held at Texas A&M on October 10, 2015 to celebrate Bill's deep connection to Texas A&M and his love and respect for all his fellow Aggies.
His kind soul and lovely spirit will be so missed by all.
Contributions in memory of Bill may be made to Big Brother Big Sister of Acadiana.
