Michael Keith Carr
November 12, 1959 - May 11, 2015
Michael grew up on a farm in central England. Although he always loved farming his boyhood dream was to be a soldier. He proudly served in the Grenadier Guards in the British Army. After leaving the army, he attended the Royal Agricultural College in England. He went on to be a farm manager and then to be an award winning agronomist.
In 1985, Michael married his soul mate Donna. In 1987, Leanna was born and in 1990 the family was complete with the arrival of Martin.
In 2000, the Carr family moved to Canada. First to Vermilion, Alta. where Michael worked as an agronomist, and then to Perdue, Sask. where he achieved another dream, owning and running a family farm. It was not an easy task but through his sheer hard work and technical expertise the farm has grown into a successful business. For the past two years he enjoyed working alongside son-in law, Brian.
Nothing was more important to Michael than family. He was a loving husband, father and grandpa. On May 2nd, he was very proud to see Martin marry Allison. Daughter Leanna will ensure his beautiful granddaughter, Maria, will grow up knowing every day how much her Grandpa loved her.
Sincere thanks to Dr. Muller and the staff at Biggar Hospital who looked after him so well.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Donna; daughter, Leanna Carr-Neufeld (Brian Neufeld), granddaughter, Maria Neufeld; son, Martin (Allison) Carr; parents, Gill and Keith Carr; in-laws, Mick and Monica Webb.
Funeral Service was held on Thursday, May 14 at 1 p.m. from St. Paul's Anglican Church, Biggar, Sask. with Pastor Mark Kleiner officiating. Eulogists were Martin Carr and Leanna Carr-Neufeld. Organist was Cathy Donahue; hymns chosen were Onward Christian Soliders, We Plough the Fields and Scatter, Fight the Good Fight, O Jesus I have Promised. Active Bearers were Martin Carr, Brian Neufeld, Keith Carr, Graham Webb, Ken Morrison, John Robinson. Interment was held at Biggar Cemetery, Biggar, Sask.

Thanks to everyone who sent cards and emails to me while I was in hospital and to all of you that phoned Don and Mom to enquire about my health. It was all very much appreciated. I am on the road to recovery and home now. A special thanks to Don, Mom, and the three girls and husbands, and the grandchildren for all their help while in hospital and for helping us move to our new apartment. Thanks to everyone!! Also thanks to everyone for the food, visits, phone calls, and flowers since I came home.
Thanks you,
Barb Swyryda
