Richard Nelson Carr Obituary

Richard Nelson Carr went to be with our Lord and Savior January 16, 2016. He was 83 years old. Dad was an amazing man. He served in Special Forces in the US Navy during the Korean War with the Underwater Demolition Team which is now known as the elite Navy Seals. He was crowned a Golden Gloves lightweight champion while serving in the Navy. Dad had a playful sense of humor and was a wonderful dancer. More than anything he loved spending time with his family and his special lady, Charlotte Brock, whom he had a loving and affectionate relationship with for many years. For recreation he enjoyed playing Texas Hold Em' and was a die hard football fan for his alma matter, USC. Dad was a lifelong member of the Elks where he had countless friends. He had 5 children and many grandchildren. He was so loved and will be missed.

Memorial services TBA.

I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name
All I have are memories, and your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake , with which I'll never part
God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart.
