Upon graduation from St. Alban’s School in 1959, Mr. Carr attended Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia where he was a member of the Beta Theta Pi social fraternity. He maintained a heartfelt devotion to St. Alban’s School (where he was the starting center on the STA 1958 ICA undefeated championship football team) and Washington and Lee University for the rest of his life. Mr. Carr, like his father before him, went on to a successful career in the securities industry as an investment advisor with Merrill Lynch and later with Legg Mason and its successor firm, Morgan Stanley. Mr. Carr was a supportive and fiercely loyal friend, father and husband; a phenomenal listener and pragmatic thinker who mentored many friends and family on a variety of issues in their lives. His ability to listen and offer thoughtful advice was a true talent that he carried with him for life.
