On Saturday, December 3, 2022, Paul Richard Carr Jr., loving husband and father, passed from this earth into eternity with his Lord at the age of 62.

Paul was very talented, artistic and had a passion for many things, one of which was playing guitar, which he used his talent to worship God and serve at his church for many years. Music seemed to flow from his hands when he strummed the guitar. He could draw anything.  He had a gift of craftsmanship, which was a blessing to our home as well as others he would help. Paul had a great sense of humor. Ready to make anyone laugh or lighten the atmosphere.  He was a man of few words.  He would listen to others, and then offer a word of encouragement that helped the person in their situation. His wisdom was often profound and so clear cut, and logical, causing one to think and refocus you to where your focus needed to be or what was truly important. He was always ready to give a helping hand to another. Or pass the knowledge he possessed in whatever area to help another person out. He always saw what he did as no big deal or insignificant, however to those lives he touched, it was a big deal and very significant. As a husband and father, we benefited most by it. Our lives are richer and fuller because of it.  

Paul was born in Indianapolis, IN. on April 27, 1960. He had many adventures there as a child. His love of exploring and being in nature lasted throughout his adult life.   Living all his adult life in Florida, where he met his wife and son.    He is preceded in death by his father Paul R Carr Sr. Survived by his wife Lori, son Mario, and mother Diana Ohrberg, sister Michele Fernandes .   Also, survived by brothers in-laws and sister in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews, and friends. All will miss him deeply.

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
