Humboldt County
California, USA
Death: Nov. 10, 1971
Humboldt County
California, USA

Since my grandfather was a commercial fisherman and fished for tuna, he was gone from home a lot. Whenever he came back in to port in Eureka, he always seemed to bring some sort of "treat" for the family: cases of canned albacore tuna and these big tins of raspberry hard candies with soft centers are two things I distinctly remember and, of course, a visit from him. He was always very thoughtful sending money for birthdays and Christmas so we could buy those "extras" that our parents didn't have the money for.
Father of Gerald E. Abrahamson of Rohnerville; brother of Edgar J. Abrahamson of Eureka and Einar L. Abrahamson of Eureka. He is also survived by three granddaughters, Mary Jane, Janet and Dee Anne Abrahamson of Rohnerville, and a nephew Robert E. Abrahamson of San Jose.

A native of Samoa, California, Mr. Abrahamson lived most of his life in Humboldt County. He was a commercial fisherman until the time of his retirement several years ago. Age 66.

Friends are invited to attend services at Goble's Fortuna Mortuary, Saturday, November 13th, at 11 a.m with the Rev. Harold Johanson officiating. Interment will follow at Sunrise Cemetery, Fortuna. Those wishing may make memorial contributions to the Heart Association, 730 - 7th Street, Eureka.
