Carl D. Vollink, 87, of Marlborough

Marlborough – Carl D. Vollink, 87, of Marlborough, formerly of Hudson, died Thursday, July 24, 2014 at The Reservoir Center in Marlborough. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Doris (Eye) Vollink of Marlborough.

Carl was born and raised in Archer, Iowa, son of the late Charles and Mern Vollink. He spent most of his life working the family farm in Archer, and most recently, along with his wife Doris, moved to Hudson in 2001 to be close to their daughter Carla.

He had spent the past few years at The Reservoir in Marlborough and always looked forward to the frequent bingo games he enjoyed with the residents. He became an avid Bruins fan since moving to the area and never missed watching the games. He loved and enjoyed being with his family, and they will truly miss him.

Besides his wife, he is survived by his daughter, Carla Franklin and her husband Steven of Hudson; his four grandchildren, Nichole Lane and her husband Robert of Indiana, Christina Petty of Connecticut, Jermaine Fields of Hudson, and James Fields of Iowa; his eight great-grandchildren; his sister, Charlotte Walbright of Illinois; and many nieces and nephews. He was the brother of the late James Vollink, Marion Olsen and Janette Graham.

Family and friends may attend calling hours Sunday, July 27, from 1 – 3 p.m., at the Tighe-Hamilton Funeral Home, 50 Central St., Hudson, followed by a funeral service and celebration of Carl's life at 3 p.m. A private burial service will be held in Forestvale Cemetery of Hudson at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Carl may be made to The Reservoir Center Resident Council Fund, C/O Activities Dept., 400 Bolton St., Marlborough, MA 01752.
