Michael D. Carr, 63, of Bellevue died suddenly after a short battle with cancer on Tuesday, March 14, 2023 at Cleveland Metro Health Hospital.
He was born September 30, 1959 in Elyria to Noel & W. Jean (Petty) Carr. Mike graduated from Bellevue High School in 1979. He was a hard worker and self-starter throughout his whole life. He had owned and operated Carr’s Lawn and Garden Repair from 1986-1992, owned rental properties, and was a former owner of Mt. Pleasant Stor-n-Loc. He worked for 7L Construction throughout his life and returned for the recent years until his retirement. Mike was a dedicated member of Providence Baptist Church in Bellevue. Mike loved his family and was a devoted son, husband, father, and grandfather. He would drop anything to help a friend or even a stranger. He enjoyed staying busy and was a jack-of-all-trades; fixing things, building things, woodworking, hunting, and four-wheeling. Anything with an engine interested Mike. In addition to his family, his pride and joy was his 1962 Ford Unibody truck that he restored. Another favorite of Mike’s was spending time with his family at the cabin in West Virginia.
On May 15, 1982 he married Donna (Edwards); she survives in Bellevue. Also surviving are their children: Stephanie (Matt) Gildenmeister of Bellevue; Brandon (Hayley) Carr of Tiffin; grandchildren: Natalie and Noah; mother, Jean Carr of Bellevue; Donna’s parents: Carvie & Ann Edwards of Bellevue; and his sister-in-law, Belinda (Scott) Brogan of Bellevue.
Mike was preceded in death by his father, Noel Carr and his brother, Joey Carr.
