Obituary for Everett Lawson "Skip" Carr Jr.

Everett Lawson “Skip” Carr, Jr., 73, of Friendsville, MD, passed away peacefully on October 19, 2021, at his residence.

Born March 4, 1948, in Boston, MA, Skip was the son of the late Everett and Esther (Sadler) Carr.

When Skip left us, he left behind eight boxes of mini crullers, four cases of Diet Pepsi and a multitude of old baseball memorabilia. He always wanted to have enough of the things he
loved, and always seemed to be preparing to be sent to a bunker (although his family can't find anything in all the mess). Skip, also known as Grumpy, was secretly lovable and charming, and he leaves behind many friends and fans as he truly made a name for himself as Deep Creek Lake icon "Skip Around Town", his popular monthly column in The Lake-Front Magazine.

In another life, of which he had many, he was a teacher, Volunteer Firefighter, beloved Little League Coach, and sometimes inappropriate DJ of the Oldies.

He moved to Garrett County in 1986 and instantly felt at home. He was the co-founder and owner of The Lake-Front Magazine, along with his wife Linda for the past 31 years. As a self-described paper boy, Skip was known for his sense of humor and had friends all over the county and is fondly known among several area children (and adults) for his fun packages, generous spirit and delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies.

In addition to his wife, Linda S. (Hill) Carr, Skip is survived by his beloved daughter, Caitlin (Scott) Foley, of New Providence, NJ and 10 month old grandson, Theo Everett Foley, named after his “Grumpy”. He also leaves behind sisters, Darlene Reed, of New Hampshire and Sherry Godfrey, of Alabama; brother, Roger Carr of Massachusetts; along with his son, Matthew Carr and granddaughter, Olivia Carr, of Maine.

At his request, Skip’s body will be cremated and there will be an Open House celebrating Skip’s life on Sunday, October 24, 2021, downstairs at Ace’s Run, at Deep Creek Lake from 2 - 4 PM. For safety’s sake, the family asks that unvaccinated attendees please wear a mask.

Skip was a great supporter of many of our local charities and his family asks that in lieu of flowers, you donate to your favorite.

Newman Funeral Homes, P.A., 179 Miller St., Grantsville, MD, is honored to assist the family with cremation arrangements.
