Welcome to the memorial page for

John Joseph Carr

June 26, 1964 ~ May 5, 2017 (age 52)

John Joseph Carr, 52, of Sylvania, OH passed away early Friday May 5, 2017 as the result of complications related to Cancer.
He was born June 26, 1964 in Toledo, Ohio to James E. Carr and Marjorie A. (Marquis) Carr. John graduated from Sylvania Northview High School in 1982.

John was a deeply loyal friend with a warm and generous heart.  He could always be counted on in times of need, whether it was pitching in with a home-project, house-sitting, or just taking a long road trip so a friend didn't have to ride alone.

He had jack-of-all-trade skills, and worked in construction and remodeling in the past.  More recently he worked and spent time at the Sylvania Moose Lodge, where he enjoyed a cold beer on more than one occasion.

John was a talented artist in his youth.  In high school he was a gifted athlete. 

A fan of Detroit sports, John enjoyed watching the Tigers, and suffered watching the Lions.  He enjoyed simple past-times: relaxing, working a crossword puzzle, grilling a steak or cooking out, fishing (or he'd say "feeeshin'").

More could be said, but anyone who knew John, knows he was a private person who would appreciate fewer words. R.I.P. Brother.

He is survived by brothers William (Carrie) Carr of Toledo, OH; Robert Carr of Sylvania, OH; Richard Carr of Columbus, OH; Sister Catherine (Joel) Ingham of Ames, Iowa; nieces Alex Damman and Ana Andresen; and nephews Andre Ingham, Harrison Zarecki, and James Carr.

A Celebration of Life and Rememberence will be scheduled later this summer for friends and family.
