Frederick George Carr, 69, of Phoenix, Arizona, passed away on March 19, 2021, surrounded by 3 of his favorite people.

Fred was the second son of the late George True and Janice Dunham Carr. Fred, or Rick to his family, grew up in Malone, NY and was a 1969 graduate of Franklin Academy. He was proud of his hometown and would often read The Malone Evening Telegram or ask about what was going on in the Malone area. After high school Fred attended Loyola/Concordia College in Montreal, Quebec where he earned a Business Degree Summa Cum Laude. At Concordia, he was a standout football player, Team Captain and earned All-Canadian status on both offense and defense. His big heart made him an incredible Resident Advisor and his even bigger hands earned many awards for Football. Those same hands provided a handshake you would never forgot. After college Fred moved to Western Canada where he was a field rep for London Life Insurance Company. He was an Insurance Representative by day and a cattle farmer by night. After a successful career with London Life, Fred relocated to Arizona to join forces with his brothers, True and Tim, in the lumber business. Fred was an integral member of Alliance Lumber and was instrumental in its daily operation. Fred was a tireless worker and to him, all work was fun. He was proud of his Alliance Lumber colleagues, loved the relationships he built, and the adventures he took– of which there were many!

Fred had many hobbies, these ranged from gold panning, hunting and fishing to online auctions. He had even more people who brought joy to his life. He loved storytelling over a glass of wine with friends, being race crew to his son Nathan, a business and life advisor to his daughter Jillian and more than anything, Fred, loved getting lost with the love of his life Sally. Fred had an extraordinary ability to make time for everyone and was known for saying “I’ll take care of it”. He was incredibly proud of his kids, was a dotting husband and a loyal friend to many.

Fred will be sorely missed by his wife Sally, his son Nathan Carr (Ann) of Alberta, Canada, his daughter Jillian Carr (Ron) of Alberta, Canada, stepdaughter, Tiffany Melia (Dan) and their son Colton, his brothers: True Carr (Liane), Scottsdale, Arizona, Timothy Carr Queen Creek, Arizona, Reid Carr (Donna) of Virginia Beach, Virginia, and John Carr (Mary) of Chateaugay Lake, New York, and one sister Joanne Barnes of Phoenix, Arizona, Aunts: Nancy Carr Downing, of Saratoga Springs, New York, and Mary Dunham Walters of Pineville, North Carolina, many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.

Fred had many close friends all of whom he loved like family. He lived his life for the people he loved, and he fought for his life the same way he lived it: with vigor, stamina, determination and much more.

We want to honor Fred in a way that he would approve and at a time where more people can be together. Due to COVID-19 restrictions no services will be held at this time. At a future date, a celebration of his life well-lived, will be held in Fred’s honor.

In-lieu of flowers the family asks those wishing to honor Fred to consider the following:

The family is grateful for the compassionate care from all of Fred’s caregivers at Barrows Neurological Institute and ask donations be made to support the incredible ICU nurses, Doctors and caretakers. Please select “dedicate my donation in honor or memory of someone” and enter Frederick G Carr:

    Fred was a giant in so many ways. His love of life, his enjoyment of people, his willingness to do anything, his stories, but most of all his devotion to his family. He is truly one of the great ones. And so he will be greatly missed. Sincere condolences to all who knew and loved him.

  2. Mickey Dunn says:

    I cannot describe how great it was to share the past almost 40 years with Fred absolutely one of the most outstanding individuals I have met in my life. I still get some of the biggest belly laughs at some of the unique and absolutely outrageous episodes of “ My travels with my friend Fred”
    I love you Fred and will miss you greatly

    Unfortunately I haven’t seen Fred since he moved back to the states. I had a number of enjoyable lunches with Fred prior to his move. They say each time a man opens his mouth he judges himself. Well, I got to judge him also, as a man’s man and a person larger than life itself. Proud to have been his friend.

  10. Blaine Lesko says:

    Fred Carr was bigger than life. No one who met him longer than two minutes would ever forget him. That picture above is a solid representation of his character. He had a ready smile, a firm handshake, and was a true gentleman. My family will miss him immensely. I offer my heartfelt condolences to one of my greatest friends and his family in this heartbreaking time.

  11. Peter Jacobs says:

    I am feeling sorry for myself because I have lost a friend. Even though I have many acquaintances I do not have a surplus of friends. Fred is hugely missed by myself and I am sure by all who knew him.

  12. Del Gower says:

    RIP my friend. Not only were you a great boss by a very good friend! I’ll never forget how you helped me when I got hurt and was always there when I needed someone to talk to. My thoughts and prayers go out to Sally, Nathan, and Jillian also to True and Tim.

  13. Mario Diaz says:

    I am absolutely saddened to hear of this news! My condolences to the entire family. Fred and had great conversations and I always appreciated his straight forward candor. RIP my friend…

  14. Betty & Frank Rudge says:

    Nate, We are so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I remember the long trek we took all night from Edmonton to Vancouver. You told me how dedicated a father he was to you and your siblings. Driving to tournaments and practices. You are such a gentleman and kind person and a credit to his memory.

  15. Dr. Don Nixon MD says:

    I remember Fred as he lived close to us at Stony Plain Alberta for a time.
    He would stop on the road to. Is it when I was working the field next to his place..
    He had a winsome smile and was so caring and interesting to to visit with

  17. Big Rick says:

    I’ve judged many people in my life based on their work ethic and respect (Thank ya Mom). Fred was fully respected by many because he had both. If you didn’t get respect from Fred it may have been because you lack a little respect or work ethic. I have had the opportunity to work side by side with Fred and he would never let you do anything by yourself. That man would work right with you and make you wonder if you could keep up 😎
    Anyway! Thank you Fred for giving me the chance to respect you and Thank you for respecting me.

  18. Brandon Harris says:

    Goodbye, big guy. Fred was a person of integrity, respect, and hard work. I enjoyed many laughs with Fred and hope he’s enjoying a fine wine in heaven, having a good laugh with those who went before.

    Cheers!
