Please share a memory of Alton to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Carr, Alton William – Age 85. St. Andrews formerly of St. Francis Harbour, Guysborough County. It is with great sadness, the family of Alton Carr announces his passing on Tuesday, December 21, 2021, in the R.K. MacDonald Nursing Home, Antigonish. Alton was born in St. Francis Harbour on April 10, 1936: he was a son of the late Bill and Theresa (Davidson) Carr. He was the loving husband of 54 years to Edith (White) and father to Debi (Blaise) Purcell, Ontario; Denise (Stephen) Morrow, Pomquet; Darren (Sharlene McNutt) Carr, Truro; and Donna (Howard) Carr, St. Andrews; and adoring grandfather to Ryan, Emily, Connor, Renee, Owen, Jordan, Dylan, Liam and Weston and a great-grandchild who he never got to hold in his arms. Alton was predeceased by his parents, Bill and Theresa Carr; sisters, Alice (James) Grady, Florence (Ralph) Howden and brother, Charlie (Myrtle). He was the last surviving member of his family. Alton was a truck driver for 45 years, mostly with Seaboard Transport and Ocean Paving. He was a hard worker and took pride in all he did. He was a devoted family man, loving father and husband, and lived his life for them. He loved working out in his little shop when time permitted. He was an active member of his parish in St. Francis Harbour, where he took great pride working the grounds around the church and hall, as well as participating in events of the parish. He enjoyed a good game of cards, a cold beer and family and friends. We wish to express a heartfelt thank you to the staff of the RK MacDonald Nursing Home for their loving care of Alton. A special thank you to his nephew, Danny Grady for being supportive of Alton over the years and always there when he needed a hand.
