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.
