Edward Ernest Carr, resident of Clinton Township, died peacefully October 26, 2014. He was 77 years of age. He fought a courageous battle and has won victory with his Lord and Savior. Edward was born in Detroit, Michigan on March 24, 1937, son of the late Albert Edward and Jennie Lois (McConnohie) Carr. He attended Wilkins Elementary in Detroit and Edward saw his gym teacher, Mr. Trevillian, had so much fun and played all day that Ed decided to become a Physical Educational Teacher too. After high school, Ed attended Wayne State University and received a Masters Degree in Phys. Ed. He then began his 46.2 years of teaching physical education for the Detroit Public Schools and touched many students’ lives throughout the years. Ed, in the summers for 35 years, worked for the Detroit Parks and Recreation as a baseball coach, an umpire and would always make sure the fields were well manicured. He was a steadfast Tigers fan who enjoyed playing baseball himself and his bat actually made it in to the Hall of Fame. Ed loved bowling and had a perfect game under his belt. He was known for his corkboards that he enjoyed making and giving as gifts. Ed was united in marriage to his loving and devoted wife, Diane Elaine Dieball on April 2, 1961 in Salem Memorial Lutheran Church of Detroit. Their union was blessed with four beautiful children. Seeing their children mature into fine Christian adults was very rewarding to them. Ed was a family man, a man’s man who just adored his grandchildren and enjoyed each and every moment he was able to share in their company. He had a wonderful sense of humor who led life by example with purpose and love. Ed has touched an innumerable number of hearts and lives, and the compassion and friendship that he extended to others was a blessing to all who knew him. He remains steadfast in our hearts and minds and will forever be loved and missed. Edward is dearest husband of 53 years to Diane; loving father of Cathy Ann Turner, Gordon (Sandra) Carr, Bryan (Martha) Carr and Andrew (Jennifer) Carr; cherished grandfather of Hannah, Jared, Jack, Anna, Nickolas, Natalie and the late Rebekah; and beloved brother of Lois Williams and Arlene Pfeuffer.

  1. Mr. Carr was my gym teacher at Stellwagen in the 1970’s. He taught us dancing and we learned the Schottische–*and* how to spell it correctly. As a teacher now, I often channel the positive influences of my many great teachers of the past. Mr. Carr was one of them. Peace to his family and friends.
