CARR, John Henry -   "Express Condolences"

Carr_JohnApril 3, 1925 - September 3, 2014

After a courageous battle with cancer, John peacefully passed away at the age of 89 years.

Predeceased by his brother Roy. Dearly missed by his nieces Ann (Mic), Kirstie, Susan (Robert), Ann and their families of England.

Seventeen years ago Mariann walked into a McDonald's Restaurant and changed her life for the better. Mariann and her daughters Tori and Kyra Gardiner ran into John as he sat enjoying his meal. They struck up a conversation and on other occasions they ran into John again. They soon became friends and maintained a wonderful relationship to this day. He was a loving man, like a grandpa to her girls. They just loved him so much and will miss him very much.

As a younger man John joined the military and served not only in Canada but first in Britain. John was the youngest person to cross the Atlantic Ocean unaccompanied, he was five years old.

After time served in Britain, John returned to Canada and was proud to continue his military career with the Canadian Forces as a Sergeant until his retirement.

In keeping with John's wishes, cremation has taken place and an interment of his cremated remains will take place in England at a later date.

When not at sea or working, he devoted his time volunteering in Shannon Park-Wallis Heights coaching football, hockey, working at the rink & rec centre.

Upon retirement from the Navy, Robert moved to Saltsprings in Pictou County, Nova Scotia with his wife and family where he worked for 10 years as a millwright in New Glasgow and Dartmouth. After retirement from millwright, he spent time as a Commissionaire off and on until 2005.

Robert greatly enjoyed hunting and fishing with his log camp buddies. Gone now are Jake, Keith, Gerry, Jim and Ted.

Robert is predeceased by his wife Leona, daughter Beverley, two sisters, Jackie and Karen, father and mother.

He is survived by children, Tracy, Paul, Susan and Jennifer; grandchildren Matthew and Robert; sisters, Vivian, Isabelle and Barbara & brother, Ron. And special friend Kathy.
