    I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers for Dad and for my family.

    Dad was so thoughtful, caring, sharing, and loving – the list just goes on and on.

    I will always think of all he taught me and did for me.

    And I can’t thank my Mom who cared for him, doing her best for him for so many years.

    Love you always Dad – Dave

  2. My Dad ~ Everett Carr was the best, thoughtful, loving, kindest & devoted dad there ever was. He will be missed not only by his family but by everyone that knew him. He would do anything for anyone that was in need. Dad was a very special dad & one I’ll never forget as we had many special memories. I love you dad and always will Your daughter, Karen ✝️

  3. I met Everett when I moved to Rochester for work in 1983, as he was the father of my friend Dave. Since then he has been a constant presence whenever I went back to that town. He loved working wood and was fond of his British old timer. Luckily I could meet him recently during my last trip. My thoughts now go to Marilyn and the entire family.
