Don Carr, our larger than life husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend, lost his battle with cancer on May 1st, 2012 in Campbell River, BC, comforted by the loving embrace of his family. Our special guy was born, June 7, 1939 and spent his early years in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Don ultimately made his home in White Rock, BC, where he spent 30 years with his loving wife and their two sons.  He is survived by his wife Sherry, sons Jason and Chris, daughter in law Brandi, and granddaughters Mackenzie and Riley. Don spent 17 years with General Motors Corporation where he made lifelong friends before venturing into business for himself, establishing Don Carr Chev Olds in South Surrey/White Rock for 30 years. Don was a well-respected businessman who took pride in giving back to the community. Donner was a “character” as many of you know only too well, but beneath that bluster, was a heart that let you know you were in the presence of a gentle giant. Don lived life to the fullest and then some. He experienced many adventures with friends and family always entertaining everyone with his elaborate storytelling. He spent several years being a snowbird playing golf with his Palm Desert friends and watching his Nascar. He and wife Sherry (Cupcake) retired three years ago and moved to their ocean front dream home in Campbell River.  Please join us in a Grey Goose toast to a remarkable man who will never be forgotten. A Celebration of Life will be held at Victory Memorial Park Funeral Centre, 14831 28th Avenue, Surrey on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 at 1:00 pm.
