Samuel Lee (Sam) Carr, Sr., one of ten(10) children born to the union of the late Tobe and Essie Mae Wright Carr, on May 9, 1932 in Chatham County, Ga. He went to be with the Lord, Friday, May 8, 2020, peacefully at his home. Samuel met and married the former Cora Bell Johnson and stayed united for sixty-eight (68) years and to this union nine (9) children were born. Bro. Carr received his Christian beliefs at an early age, and was united with the Church of Christ @ Hillbridge where he attended faithfully with his wife and many family members and friends. He was loved by everyone that he was introduced to. He was a man whom loved God, and loved to do good works towards people. Bro. Carr worked for many years with the Laurens County Public Works Department.
Bro. Samuel Carr Sr. made sure that he was a positive role model so his children would grow up to be the same. He acted in a way that was gracious and caring towards his neighbors and friends. Although with limited education, Sam always used common sense when it came to taking care of the things that mattered. His wife and children were his biggest priority. When he found the time, Sam enjoyed hunting and gardening. Without a second thought, Samuel would share what he had to help those who had less.
