Still waters run deeply with you.!! You always had the knack for coming up with the best and funniest ways to see things. Made me laugh all the time. I would look at you with surprize and "say now where did you come up with such a clever wise crack answer and come back." So funny, kind, gentle, smart and willing to do anything and everything all the time for everyone!! A true and outstanding gentleman, father, husband and friend. So hard working would never give up on a project until perfection was the result. Oh boy.. you could create and build things to make our lives better and easier!!! Thank you, thank you !!! I thought about you on the 5th out of nowhere you just popped into my mind. You will be dearly missed. One of the best most honorable people I ever met! I am so sorry for the loss of you in the world and I will continue to pray for his beloved wife, daughter, family, pets and friends during this time of overwhelming grief for all of these special loved ones.
Heaven is a much better place with wonderful Joe Carrington there sitting with Jesus and smiling at us with our loving God. Joe Carrington had me at hello, a sweet guy named Joe!! Rest in peace with God's loving angels...

The Carrington’s have been such an important part of my life and childhood on Marco. Their love and friendship is contagious and is such a big part of the community that I call home. Mr. Carrington was always there for Elizabeth and I with a comforting hug and words of encouragement throughout so many life events. From big moments like graduations, to small like family dinners, his warmth and love would fill the room. My heart is so heavy but filled with love and appreciation for all the joy and memories we shared together.
