Michael James Carr, 61 years of age, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 17, 2022 at Kenosha Memorial Hospital.
Michael was born September 18, 1959 in Kenosha, WI to LeRoy Carr, Sr and Dorothy Marie Bardwell. Michael was struck by a car when he was 18 years old causing severe brain trauma and diagnoses given to his parents were grim. But he fought his way through it and not long after, he earned his high school degree from Tremper High School. This was a testament to who Michael was. He went on to have challenges for the rest of his life, but he lived a life in which he was always peaceful, kind hearted & loving. Affectionately known as “Muss” whenever you saw him, he was never causing trouble or harm to anyone, but love to tease and harass his family. He was loved by everyone who knew him.
Michael was preceded in death by his parents, Lewis & Dorothy Cotten & LeRoy Carr, Sr.; one brother, Darryl Carr Sr. He leaves to cherish his memory four brothers, Orlando Lee, LeRoy Jr., Duane (Lisa) Carr all of Kenosha; Brian (Cassandra) of Jacksonville, FL; five sisters, Alice Leggett, Sherry Cotten, Lilly Cotten, Minne Beal all of Kenosha, Kimberly (Adrian) Pittman of Lawton, OK; two Aunts, one Uncle, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
A Celebration of Life for Michael will be held on Saturday, February 5th at 11:00 a.m. at the Bruch Funeral Home. Visitation will be held at 10:00 a.m. until the time of service.
