Mr. Carey was a wonderful coach during my teenage years. I look back fondly at those memories and learned a lot. My thoughts and prayers are with you Mrs. Carey and family,

Dear Carey family. Great memories of Donald - teaching with him, playing tennis with him and of course 4-square at recess. Rest in peace.

I learned so much without even knowing it, seeing his family live over my teen years. In all it’s craziness, he provided, engaged with them, extended that engagement for himself and family to the world around him, even the occasional stray. You’ll be missed, mourned.
