Robert served his country in the United States Army. He was a member of New Life Church in Monticello. Working in the yard, pushing a lawn mower was his favorite pastime. He loved to get in a car and explore new roads. His saying was, “It will come out somewhere.”

A very special thanks to Ella Brown for her care and for being a second mother to our loved one.
Preceding him in death were his parents, Tink and Doris Carr; wife, Jean Carr; a sister, Jacqueline Morgan and a stepson, Troy Jackson.
The family expresses a very special thanks to Lawrence County Nursing Center and Hospice Ministries.
