Alfa Watson Carr, 86, peacefully passed to heaven January 7, 2019 in Fruitland Park, Florida.
Alfa and her faithful husband of 67 years, both born in Hammond, NY, had quite an adventure covering the world living in Germany, Japan, Hawaii, Florida, South and North Carolinas, Texas, California, and New York; plus traveling throughout the United States, Pacific Rim, Caribbean Islands and Europe.
Alfa is survived by her husband, Garnard “Gary”; her brother, Richard “Dick” Watson; three children, Steve & Wendy Carr, Mike & Pam Carr and Debbie & Larry Hollingsworth, several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
Alfa earned degrees from Hammond Central, Canton ATM, Florida State and University of Hawaii. She taught school in Florida, Japan, and South Carolina.
Together they supported Gary’s 22-year military career plus owned enterprises ranging from digging lawn wells to a fleet of deep-sea fishing boats.
The family marker will be updated where her parents, Eddy “Dutch” and Harriet Watson, rest. Alfa’s ashes will be placed on the beach she loved so dearly.
