Robert Carew was a devoted soldier in the Salvation Army giving selflessly of his time, energy and humour. When the Lord asked, he never refused, serving as Treasurer, Corps Sergeant-Major, Bandsman, Janitor and Youth Group Leader.
His example instilled a strong work ethic in his children, spending untold hours in the Thrift Store and being a tireless worker during the Christmas Kettle and Red Shield Appeal campaigns.
