Brendan Carr Obituary, Death – Brendan Jay Carr, 46 years old at the time of his tragic demise, died on Sunday, April 26, 2020. He was born on April 24, 1974 in Brighton, Massachusetts, and is the son of Richard and Joan (Barnicle) Carr. His mother’s maiden name was Barnicle, and he adopted it. He was larger than life in terms of both his physical stature and personality. Neither of these characteristics can be overstated. People, particularly his son Conall, who felt his father was amusing, found themselves laughing at him on a daily basis.
Conall was the one who thought his father was amusing. Brendan excelled in several of the sports he competed in when he was younger. His secondary school was St. Thomas Aquinas in Dover, Delaware, and he was a three-sport athlete there, competing in basketball, baseball, and soccer. He attended high school there. He earned his studies at St. Thomas Aquinas University. He was most proud of the back-to-back basketball titles he won with a team coached by Dan Parr, a man he stayed in touch with and loved as if they were family.
He treated his teammates as if they were family. When he finished from high school, he continued his basketball career at Brewster Academy, and he later attended Keene State College. Brendan relocated to Portsmouth after graduating from college and established his own company, Northeast Safety Training & Equipment, which he successfully maintained for several years. Throughout his career, he remained in the field of occupational health and safety, with a strong emphasis on looking out for the well-being of his coworkers.
It didn’t matter if it was his family, friends, or even random strangers; he always put the needs of others ahead of his own. He has a generous and compassionate heart. He was an obsessive music fan, and some of his favorite performers included the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and the blues. He never ceased trying to persuade listeners to try new music, regardless of whether they liked what they heard. Despite the fact that he enjoyed all of the activities he participated in, Brendan learned that spending time with his large and supportive extended family offered him the most satisfaction.
Brendan is survived by his loving parents, Richard and Joan (Barnicle); brother Jeffrey and his wife, Amy (Turner); cherished nieces and nephews, Allyson, Corrina, and Ronin; uncle James Barnicle (and wife, Nina); uncle John Barnicle (and wife, Catherine); and a slew of lovely cousins. Brendan also leaves a big number of wonderful cousins behind. Brendan’s universe revolved on Conall of Nottingham, who poured his heart and soul into nurturing him. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be sent to the Conall Carr Scholarship Fund, which is handled by Service Credit Union.
