Jesse William Carr passed in peace on Wednesday January 30, 2019 at The Solana Vintage Park in Houston, Texas at the age of 82. He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Vera “Jane” Comeaux Carr, his sons, Kyle Carr (wife Mary Ann Crist Carr), Kevin Carr (wife Laura Hohes Carr) and Lawrence “Larry” Bauske (husband Joe Gomez), and his daughters, Keri Bauske Clarbull (husband Paul Clarbull) and Terri Bauske Holstead (husband Chris Holstead). He also has enjoyed the love and support of five granddaughters and four grandsons (Jillian, Steven, Christine, Sarah, Rebekah, Natalie, Paul, Grant, and Aiden), sisters Yvonne Carr Psencik, Marilyn Carr Hagans, Arlene Carr Hardwick, and a host of nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his first wife Mary Jo Ferguson Carr, and daughters Karen and Heather Carr.

Jesse was a lifelong Texan who spent his years in Houston and Huntsville. He was an avid hunter and fisherman who always loved his time with family and the outdoors. He learned carpentry from his father, Jesse Orlean Carr, and the importance of home and family from his mother, Pauline Mary Cernick Carr. He worked his talents in the construction industry for the City of Houston, Huntsville Corrections Department, and several school districts and private companies until 2017. He served in the Navy Reserve as an electronics technician and was called into Active Service during the Cuban Missile Crisis while starting a new family. He served his community as a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, Life Member of the National Rifle Association, and local archery clubs.

Jesse was always willing to sacrifice his time and resources for friends and family. He was always sharing kind moments and humorous stories – some even true -with anyone willing to listen. His tall tales of past deeds always had us wondering about our heritage and friendships. We will always remember him and the time he gave us on this earth - until we meet again.

We would like to thank our friends at The Solana Vintage Park for their friendship, compassion and outstanding care of Jesse over the past year and a half. Our family would like to give our sincerest gratitude to the nurses and staff with Brookdale Hospice Care who so lovingly and compassionately cared for Jesse in his final days.

Visitation will be held 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Monday, February 4, 2019 at Earthman Resthaven Funeral Home, 13102 North Freeway, Houston, Texas 77060.

Hola!
Jesse was a man of strong character and opinionated, we have spend many hours over the past 21 years drinking hot tea talking about his ancestry, he loved to discuss American and British politics, we agreed to disagree!
Hunting and fishing was another of his passions, goodness knows what kind of meat he has BBQ' d for us.
When Jesse and Jane visited us in UK we had a great day trip to London, the train journey was made all the more special by first class travel.... we had got on the wrong train! Free refreshments .
He was very proud of all his family and would tell us of all their achievements and then tell us again!
His illness slowed him down but he always had a ready smile, he had the love of Jane and superb support of the family to help him through the difficult times.
We will miss you Jesse, you will not be forgotten.
Adios Amigo. Sue and Dave xxx

Their wedding day June 7, 1980. One of the best days of my life. Jesse became mine and ours on this day.

Jesse -

Blood is not always thicker than water, as they say. You came into my life when I was 9 years old and married my mom in June 1980. You brought two boys into the new family and mom brought three very small children. You stepped up to the plate and became the Dad you did not have to be. I am so incredibly BLESSED and eternally grateful that you opened your heart and soul to my mom and us kids. You taught me so many life lessons, sometimes REALLY HARD life lessons, and also that every "action has a consequence". You demonstrated to us kids how a man should love, respect and treat his wife. You raised the bar so very high. I've loved you from the moment you said "I Do" with mom. You were our BONUS "Dad". The common phrase "Step Dad" was absolutely no acceptable in our home. You were Dad. Then little Natalie entered our lives in 2005... you get the Golden Papaw award. Your "Little Peanut" and "Grasshopper" thinks the sun rises and sets in your eyes. You taught her how to cast a fishing rod (although you were not successful in teaching her to bait her own hook), you helped her learn to ride her first bicycle with training wheels, you introduced her to ice cream for the first time as a toddler and the list goes on and on. You were loved by our entire family beyond measure. It was my mission in the last many months of your life to ensure that you and Mom were comfortable and happy. I believe I succeeded. Jesse, don't worry about Mom. As I always say "I've got this!" She will be looked after and deeply loved every single day. Love you FOREVER Dad. xxxooo
