Harold Tubbs Carr Jr.

Harold Tubbs Carr Jr., 93, of Brevard, passed away peacefully Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018.

He was born Sept. 14, 1925, in Bangor, Maine, to the late Harold T. Sr. and Doris (Tubbs) Carr.

He was a graduate of Bangor High School class of 1942. In December 1943, he was inducted into the Army and served in the European theater during World War II. He was wounded in action, leading to his discharge in August of 1945. During his service, he was awarded two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star for meritorious service in combat.

On Nov. 8, 1945, he was united in marriage to Alice Marie Young and together they celebrated 72 years of marriage. They raised four boys in Mattituck, N.Y. before moving to Penrose in 1991. Later they moved to Brevard.

He was a loving father and grandfather and is survived by his sons, Stephen, Robin, and Alan (Tami) Carr, as well as many grandchildren.

He attended Husson College in Bangor, receiving his teaching certificate as a business education teacher. He taught for several years in schools in Maine and Mattituck, and also pursued a graduate education.

In 1967, he was appointed as a supervisor for the Board of Cooperative Education Services, and continued to serve the board until he retired in 1981. For the 10 years that followed, he set up and ran a consulting business in Eastern Long Island, assisting approximately 15 schools.

Upon moving to North Carolina, he was active in his church, serving as treasurer, spent time volunteering for Christian ministry, and supporting Sharing House.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Alice, who passed away this past February. In addition, he was preceded in death by his eldest son, Rodney; daughter-in-law, Linda (Robin); his parents; and siblings.

He was role model to his four boys in his values and beliefs, and was the living definition of a caring and devoted husband to his wife, Alice.

His family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Paula Hickman for taking special care of their parents over the past several years.
