John Carr, 81, passed away on November 27, 2019 at Norwalk Nursing and Rehab.

John was born February 19, 1938 in Alamogordo, NM to Louis (Jumbo) Carr and Dolores Hayes. He graduated from East High School in Des Moines. He worked in the food service business, had a printing company and his own bowling pro shop. John loved bowling and giving bowling lessons. He wanted others to enjoy the game as much as he did. He also enjoyed building and flying control line airplanes. He was a hard worker and loved his family. They were the most important thing to him.

He is survived by his wife, Carlotta; his first wife, Joyce Carr; children, Valerie Carr and John Michael (Cristil) Carr; grandchildren, Ford, Griffin, Bianca, Cash, Ada Marie, Sophia, John Jr., Hugh, and Kassie; siblings, Alice Lancaster, Bobbie Turner, and Don (LuAnn) Barnes; as well as a host of extended family and dear friends.

John was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Louis Carr; half-brother, Charles Carr, and step-dad, Willis Barnes.

The family will greet friends at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, December 14, 2019 at Hamilton’s Southtown Funeral Home, 5400 SW 9th Street. Funeral services will follow at 12:00 p.m. also at the funeral home.
