On September 19, 2013, Jim Carr of Park City, Utah, age 88, passed away in Solana Beach, CA, where he spent his final years. He was the dear brother of the late Thomas Carr and Charles Carr, and loving uncle of Thomas Carr "TC", Charlie, Robert, Jimmy and Barbara Jo (Bill) Weisenbach.|
Jim was born on December 26, 1924, in Philadelphia, PA. He proudly served in the U.S. Army during WWII, fighting in the "Battle of the Bulge". After his military service, Jim worked for RCA as a top recruiter in Florida and Alaska. Arriving in Park City in 1964, Jim was one of the Modern Day Pioneers who truly believed in and shaped Park City into the World Class Resort Community which we all know and love today. He, along with his trusted dog, "Bogart", was the proud owner of the Prospector Hotel & Prospector Sirloin Restaurant/ Bar (Hula Bowl). He also owned and operated "The Last Resort" on lower Main St. which housed many locals in their early years, as well as commercial storefronts on Main Street.
Jim's true loves were skiing, which he did into his early 80's, tennis and the Main Street Deli which he frequented almost every day. He truly touched the lives of many individuals who still call Park City home; as well as his dear friends in Southern California (Tennis club and Polo grounds), who were with him to the end.
Jim was interred at the Miramar National Cemetery, San Diego, CA, after a military ceremony.
A Celebration of Jim's Life will be held in Park City, Utah (soon)! All family members, friends and acquaintances of Jim are invited. Please RSVP to: Tom Carr-"TC", email@example.com. home 303-282-9670/ cell 303-475-4154.
