Brian Carr passes away, former director of John Carr Liverpool Ltd
It is with great sadness that we report the death of Brian Carr, previously a director of John Carr Liverpool Limited.
Brian was a staunch supporter of the UK factory-produced mortar industry. In the 1970s he was a founding member of the Mortar Producers Association, today known as MPA Mortar and recently attended the association’s 50th annual lunch as a past chairman. He worked hard for the association, always remaining cheerful and was an active supporter of its aims and objectives.
He will be sadly missed by his friends and colleagues in the building and construction industries where he was well liked and respected for his sound, straight-forward advice, humour and kindness.
Our deepest condolences go to his wife Alma and his family.
A private family funeral is being arranged. Chairman of the MPA Mortar executive committee, Stuart Russell, said: ‘Brian was a proper gentleman of the industry, I always found his manner open and welcoming and he was always keen to offer support and advice to anyone in need.
His presence and personality will be sadly missed. My thoughts go out to his family at this time.
