Bradford “Brad” Scott Carr, age 61, of Tucker, Georgia passed away Saturday, July 22, 2017. He was born April 1956, to Dr. Richard and Marilyn (Hughes) Carr. Brad is survived by his wife Faith Carr (Montgomery); his three sons, Evan, Mckinley and Cameron; brothers Brian (Diane) and Bob (Sue), niece Briana and nephews Max and Daniel, and many loving friends. Brad was a graduate of University of West Georgia, and a proud member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity, where he developed lifelong friendships. Brad spent his profession life as a certified public accountant, a certified machinery and equipment appraiser, a business broker and a relator. He served in office at Georgia Association of Business Brokers and was honored by them for his achievements in outstanding sales. Although quiet in his faith, Brad was steadfast in his Christian values. Brad was a member at Embry Hills United Methodist Church, where he served on the finance committee for many years. Brad had a variety of different interests. Brad was an avid sport fan. He spent his weekends watching anything from golf to MMA. He was especially fond of the Georgia Bulldogs, and the Atlanta Braves. Brad also enjoyed aviation, stargazing, weather phenomenon, and tracking the international space station. Brad spent the entirety of his children’s lives at the baseball field, coaching, supporting and cheering them and their peers on. His support continued even off the field, where Brad was a constant pillar of love and guidance for his three boys. Brad’s love for his boys was nothing compared to the love he had for his college sweetheart and wife of 35 years. He spent every day of his marriage upholding his marriage vows, and making his wife feel so loved. He loved and supported everything his wife did, down to the short lived pepto-bismol pink bedroom walls. Brad filled every room with laughter and warmth, and never met a stranger. From the moment he met someone, they became instant old friends. He often would meet strangers and they would instantly be his partner, boss, or buddy. He enjoyed developing long-lasting friendships, which always included a personalized snarky nickname. Brad was a devoted father, husband, and friend and will be deeply missed by those who were privileged enough to spend time with him. A funeral service is scheduled at 3:00 pm Sunday, July 30, 2017 at Embry Hills United Methodist Church, 3304 Henderson Mill Road, Chamblee, GA 30341 reception and visitation to follow service. In lieu of flowers the family requests you spend precious time with your family, perhaps doing some of Brad’s favorite things; stargazing, going to the baseball field, or just a simple family barbeque. The family would also appreciate donations to Wounded Warriors Project on Brad’s behalf, as he wore red every Friday in honor of our veterans.

  4. Dear Carr family, we are thinking of you and praying for God’s love and peace to help you during this trying time. Our hearts are with you. Unfortunately we are out of town but our prayers are with all of you.

  5. Faith & sons, We are deeply saddened by the news about Brad and so very sorry. This must be a very difficult time for you. Please remember that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Such a kind soul, who will be greatly missed by all who knew him. I will miss his wit and our ongoing tease about tube socks and blouse buttoning. Whenever he or the two of you were driving you always either stopped to chat or waved when a distance. Loved his homemade “tonic”. And loved his laughter. I know how much you will miss Brad, but you can take comfort and strength from the wonderful family you and he had together. I know their love will get you through this difficult time. I would like to offer our help too with whatever you need assistance. May God bless you and your family during this time and always, Love Saye and Teddy.

  6. My Deep condolences from the bottom of my heart. I can’t say I understand your loss at all but I do feel pain for your family. I am sad right now and if I can help in any way please just let me know. I am sending you a spiritual hug filled with the love of Lord! 🙂

  7. May God’s peace and comfort be with Faith and her family. You were a good cousin, Brad. I’ll always remember your laugh and how you made others laugh. Until we meet again before God’s throne.

  8. Aunt Faith, Evan, McKinley, and Cameron, Uncle Brad will forever hold a very special place in my heart. I have nothing but the very best memories of him. I think I got excited about coming to Atlanta to visit more than any other place we went and having you guys here on the farm was always the best! His hugs were amazing and he always made me feel like the most special person. Your family means so much to me. I am truly honored to have known him and for him to have such a special place in my life. I love all of you so much. I will be praying for all of you and for the peace and comfort that can only come from the Lord.

  9. My heart goes out to everyone!. My prayers are for everyone in the family as well. I shall always remember Brad. Through all the times we had as fellow brothers at West Georgia College. Forever Brad! I’ll miss you!

  10. To Faith and the entire Carr family – I am so sorry to hear about the passing of my Kappa Sig Brother, Brad. He will always hold a special place in my heart for the friendship and memorable times we shared at West Ga and then as we each began the life journey of marriage and raising a family. Faith, please know that you and your family are in our prayers and you can take comfort in the fact that your husband of 35 years is already cracking jokes with his new heavenly friends and the “snarky nicknames” are flowing freely. He will be missed, but not forgotten. He will always be with you and the boys. If you need him, just look up – he’s there. AEKDB Brad – with love & prayers from San Antonio, TX

  11. Brad lived accross the street from me on Preakness Dr. From the day he moved in until the day we graduated high school…we were close friends. I wish I had the time to tell all the stories from those teen age years. Brad could always turn a bad situation into something positive. He had a way to make us laugh and forget about what was troubling. I look forward to that day we will meet again…no more death,no more tears, no more pain…

  12. We will never forget Brad’s kindness, laughter and hugs. May God give him eternal rest and to Faith and the boys – strength. We are here for you…

  13. Evan and family. Prayers are coming your way. Know that I wish you peace and love. Hold each other close. Peace.

  14. I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family and friends in this sad time. Brad was clearly dearly loved by many and certainly will be missed. May the support of loved ones and God’s promise of the time when death, pain and sadness will be gone forever bring you comfort and peace. (Revelation 21:4; 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4)

  15. Faith & the boys,

    Our sincerest condolences. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. May the warm and loving memories of Brad sustain you in the days to come.

    With deepest sympathy,

    Gerald & Carolyn Johnson

  21. Faith, Cameron, McKinley, and Evan:

    I met your Dad in 1998 at PBI, where we grew to know and respect one another. I stopped by to see him from time to time. Whenever I did that it was like time never a I did that it was like time never passed. He was so easy to talk to and always had a smile on his face.

    I know y’all will miss him greatly! He was a great friend and confidant.

    My thoughts and prayers area with yall!

  22. I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of my friend and Brother Brad Carr. The world is less with his passing. I know he will watch over us all as he passes into the Chapter Celestial… AEKDB

  23. Dear Faith and family,
    So sorry for your loss. Tim and I are both out of town but will keep you and yours in our thoughts and prayers.

  24. I remember the good times at Lake Shafer with all of the cousins at the grandparents cabin when we were all so young.
    I am so sorry for Brad’s passing as such a young age.
    The family is in our prayers and thoughts.

  25. Brad has always been a big presence on Parkside Way and in our lives, especially as we raised our girls. The Hally family will miss him dearly. We will always love the Carr family and be there for you.

  26. I know losing Brad will leave a great void for the family because his life impacted so many, mine included. My relationship with Brad was pretty brief because he played a major role in Kappa Sigma and I was just a pledge, but I will never forget how he explained brotherhood to me. I told him I thought pretending to be brothers just because we joined the same club was ridiculous. He said “just the physical act of two men pledging and following through in treating each other like a brother is all that is required, the brotherhood develops by itself.

    Thanks Brad.

    Your brother forever,

    Greg Adams

  27. Brad was a good friend in High school and from what I read here, a wonderful person. Prayers to his family and may the Lord be with you all in this difficult time.

  28. You’re in my thoughts and I feel so at a lost for words so I pray comfort and peace with my deepest condolences from the bottom of my heart for your family and for You. Honestly I never know what to say in this moment though I think that you never get over just go through my dear. I am sorry that I can’t be there today with you because I have a bit of a schedule conflict of timing two functions at the same time same day but I will be there in spirit. May the Lord lift you up in spirit in your time of need I am sending you my spiritual hug filled with the love of Lord! Safe In His Arms thank you for being the good person that you are and always will be………..smoochas

  29. Dear Carr Family, we are so sorry we are out of town during your loss. Please know we have been thinking of daily and we will always be here if you ever need anything. We loved Brad and were so blessed by getting to know him and your whole family. He had a contagious smile that we will never forget. Kim and Tommy

  30. Faith and family, I was so sad to learn of Brad’s passing. We worked together at PBI and served together at the GABB. We always had a good time together no matter what we were doing. I had to smile when I read the statement in his obituary, stating he gave all his friends a snarky nickname, which is true, because mine was always “Jimmy.” I haven’t seen Brad in some time but we did stay in touch by email, especially when we were discussing politics. I know how much Brad loved his family and I know he and his gentle spirit will be greatly missed by us all. RIP Brad and I pray God’s peace which passes all understanding will be with all the family

  31. Faith, we were so very sorry to hear about Brad’s passing. We absolutely cannot imagine what you and the boys are feeling right now. But, what we do know is that, in reality, Brad is right now with Jesus Himself enjoying every detail of fun and relationship with Him.

    We are so blessed to have known Brad and experience his wonderful personality! He was such a lover of people and we will never forget him. We will definitely be in touch with you, Faith. We love you and the boys.

    Mark and Sharon Jay

  32. We just learned of your loss, and send our deepest sympathy. We pray that God’s peace and comfort will sustain you in the days ahead. You were such great neighbors for our 18 years in Smoketree, always greeting us with kindness and smiles. May God bless you and keep you in His care.

  33. The above entry is from Donald and Vickie Wallace. Our daughter, Rebecca, use to babysit your boys. Please know you are in our prayers.
