Robert Carr

In Loving Memory

Carr, Robert G.

Robert G. Carr

Robert Gene Carr, age 77, of St. Louis, Missouri, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on November 22, 2023.  Bob is survived by his best friend and wife of 56 years, Nancy J. (Peterson) Carr, his loving son Brendan S Carr, and his wife, Mary (Kelleher) of Ashburn, Virginia.  He is the devoted and funny Papa to Veronica, Grace, Samantha, and Brendan Jr. and a loyal brother to Lynda (Cooper) and her husband Ron, Michael and his wife Benita, and Charles and his wife Shirley.  The beloved brother-in-law of Linda Natal, Jim and Deb Peterson, and dearest uncle, cousin, and friend to many.

Bob was preceded in death by his beloved son Gregory Charles, brother Ronald, and parents Mary and Ernest Carr.

Bob was born on August 22, 1946 in St, Louis, Missouri.  He enlisted in the United States Navy in 1964.  While stationed in Newport, Rhode Island, he met the love of his life, Nancy Jane Peterson, on Christmas Eve in 1965.  They married in July 1967 and had their first son, Gregory, in 1970.

While serving in the United States Navy, he was appointed a Sonar Technician First Class in 1970 and served aboard Destroyers Dixon and Ingraham during the Vietnam War.  Bob was honorably discharged from the United States Navy in 1972.  After leaving the Navy, Bob and Nancy welcomed a second son, Brendan, in 1973.

The Carr family settled in Brockton, Massachusetts, in 1976, where Bob began a successful career at Polaroid for 22 years as a crew chief. Bob was an active member of the Brockton community, serving as a little league baseball coach for several years and joining the BHS Band boosters at Brockton High School.  Bob returned home to be with his family in St. Louis in 1995 and worked at Sunset Ford and Mohela until 2009.  Retirement did not slow him down.  Bob was a talented woodworker, avid reader, sports fanatic, and continuous learner.

The second love of his life was the sea.  Bob and his family loved sailing together in the Cape and Islands.  Most recently, he enjoyed many great memories at the beach on Cape Cod with his extended family, the Kellehers.

He cherished watching every grandchild’s music recital and hockey game and talking sports with his son Brendan.  However, he was happiest with his beautiful, adoring wife, Nancy, by his side.  Their unwavering commitment and love for one another during joyful and difficult times will forever be etched in the hearts of their children, grandchildren, and those fortunate to witness their extraordinary bond.

Visitation at Kutis Funeral Home (South County Chapel) 5255 Lemay Ferry Rd. on Monday, November 27, from 5-8 pm. with a Funeral Service on Tuesday, November 28, at 9:00 am.  Interment at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.
