Donald W. Carr, Sr.

Mr. Donald W. Carr, Sr. of the Town of Barre, passed away at his home on June 2, 2018 surrounded by his family.

Don was born in Albion, April 28, 1950, a son of the late Walter and Helen (Waldo) Carr.  A graduate of Albion High School, class of 1969, he married the former Fonda R. Wilkins on August 4, 1973.  A lifelong resident of the area, he was a mechanic for Iroquois Rock Products in Brockport for many years.  He enjoyed the outdoors and was a life member of the Barre Sportsmen’s Club.  He was a member of International Union of Operating Engineers and loved tinkering, especially with heavy equipment.  He could fix anything.  He took great pride in his 1964 red impala super sport he once owned and also enjoyed snowmobiling. He valued anytime he could spend with his granddaughter, who put a sparkle in his eye whenever he saw her.

Survivors include his beloved wife of nearly 45 years, Fonda; two children, Donald (Gretchen) Carr, Jr. and Jennifer Carr; very special granddaughter, Faith; siblings, Marcia (Clive) Reid, Bonnie (Raymond) Piedmont, Ronald (Susan) Carr, Janet Carr, Ruth (late Kirk) Snyder, June (Warren) Seager and Dayle (Dennis) Beedham; sisters-in-law, Darlene (Michael) Rich, Sharlene (John) Pratt, III and Donna (James) Grinnell; several nieces, nephews and friends.  He was predeceased by his sister, Terri Krieger.
