Obituary for Elmer Dale Carr, Sr.

Elmer Dale Carr Sr. went on towards the rest of his journey on November 22, 2018.

Dale was born July 27, 1948 in Odessa,Texas to William Jefferson Carr and Vivian Tucker Carr. He was preceded in this journey by both parents and his sister, Barbara Ruth Garramone.

Still here in our earthly journey are his wife, Pamela, and two sons, Elmer Dale Carr Jr. and William Jefferson Carr, one Loved daughter-in-law, Amy, and four grand children: Christiana Nikole, Avery Elizabeth, Liam Alexander and Leihm Earnest; one great grandson, Jacob Lee and two nephews: Francis Keith and William Louis with their beautiful families. As well as beloved cousins Randy, Kay and Vickie with their beautiful families. One very special nurse and friend, Deana. There are many relatives and friends who wish him well on his journey.

Dale grew up in DeKalb and Midland, Texas. He was an electrician by trade, but also worked as a camp ground manager for Community of Christ. He served as an Elder and pastored the congregation in DeKalb as well as serving as financial officer. His love of youth work gave him great joy. He loved De Kalb. From promoting and helping create the city park to serving the city as Utilities Manager, his goal was to help DeKalb be a clean, safe and desirable place to live. 

Memorial Services will be 2:00 PM Saturday, November 24, 2018 at Bates Family Funeral Home in DeKalb Texas with Jeff Carr officiating.
