Richard Joseph Carr, 83

Richard Joseph Carr, age 83, a long-time resident of New Canaan, Connecticut and Chatham, Massachusetts, and a former resident of Bronxville and Bedford, New York, died peacefully on Thursday, May 13th at his home after a valiant 2 year battle with brain cancer. He is survived by his three daughters Adrienne Sparks (John) of Harvard, MA, Jennifer Casper (Scott) of New Canaan, CT and Christina Carr also of New Canaan, CT, his grandsons who he adored, Aidan and William, his brother James (Muriel) of New York, NY and his nieces and nephews Michael, Irene, Teri, Patti, Brian, Katie, grandniece Emily and grandnephew Matthew. 

He was predeceased by his wife, Sharon, his brother Michael, and his sister Patricia. 

Richard was born on October 19, 1937 at Knickerbocker Hospital in New York to James Carr and Hanoria Buckley, originally of counties Donegal and Cork, Ireland. Richard was the youngest of four children and although he grew up during the depression, he enjoyed an idyllic childhood. He spent endless hours playing stickball in the streets, hiking from upper Manhattan to the Palisades, fishing and swimming in the Hudson River, sledding in Central Park, spending summers at Rockaway Beach surrounded by friends and family including his dearest cousin Pat Sheehan — and every once in a while, skipping school to sneak into a daytime movie. 

He attended Ascension School (Class of 1951) in Manhattan where he met his lifelong best friend and partner in crime Larry Greeley. His boyhood escapades and pranks would often catch the attention of the Christian Brothers and he would serve penance by cleaning the school erasers or writing the Latin prayer Suscipiat hundreds of times.
