Carr JohnCARR, John (Jack) William  - We lost a great man on Wednesday, March 21st, 2018 at the age of 87 at Pleasant Meadow Manor in Norwood, ON.

Beloved, doting husband of Dawn Jean Carr (nee Ward) for 67 years, celebrated in January 2018. First hero & cherished father of daughters Kara (Chris), Janice (Paul), son John (Karen) and daughter Nancy (Allan).

Youngest son of Edith Maude and John William Carr 1st (deceased), Toronto, ON. Brother of Franklin Walsh (June) from Michigan, USA and pre-deceased Mary Dobbs (Tom), Carl, George and Josephine of Toronto, ON.

Loving Grandfather to grandchildren Aaron (Crystal), Sarah and Julianna (Rod), Patrick (Sergio), Caitlin (Darren), and Emilie (Mike) and great-grandchildren Ryan and Zachary, Abel and Benjamin, Jake and Rylee. Beloved uncle to Beth (deceased), Lynn, and Brian (deceased), Donna (deceased) (Steve), Michael (deceased) (Ilona, deceased), Carl Terry (Kathy), Valerie (Dan) and Sharon (Gary), Peter, Valerie (Joe) and Brian (Donna), Paul (Melody) and Leanna, Jason and Vanessa.

Lovingly remembered by sister-in laws Janice (Peter, deceased), Judy (Bob, deceased), and Gerry. Retired from General Motors of Canada since 1986, Jack was a quiet man who loved music from every country and era, dancing, woodworking, nature and its deer, birds, foxes, cooking, travel, photography, stained glass, and wine-making. He was a “Jack” of all trades.

A man of few words, he would deliver occasional zingers that brought you down with laughter. He loved his family and bride deeply. They spent over 20 years at their home in the woods on Benoir Lake in Harcourt, ON where they shared wonderful times with curling friends and neighbours.

Special thank you to all the staff at Pleasant Meadow Manor for their loving care and compassion for our family - you are the best.

Visitation will be held at OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME, 847 King Street West (905-721-1234) on Monday, March 26th from 2:00 p.m. until time of Memorial Service in the Chapel at 3:00 p.m.

Memorial donations to the Alzheimer Society or your charity of choice would be appreciated in lieu of flowers.
