William James Carr

May 07, 1948 - April 01, 2023

"Bill" was born in Chicago, Illinois, to James and Genevieve Carr. He was a longtime resident of the Spokane Valley area. Bill excelled at many careers throughout his lifetime. He began as a diesel mechanic during which he became a lifetime member of Machinist Local 86. Most recently he was proud to work at Event Rents with Brad and associates, where he was treated with extraordinary dignity and respect. We will dearly miss his sense of humor and love of family, cooking, golf, and Husky football. Bill is survived by his wife, Anne Vigesaa-Carr; stepchildren, Leanne (Marty) Ambrose, Leslie (Mark) Lloyd, Kurt (Mandee) Vigesaa, Nicole (Mike) Orrino; 10 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister, Mary Ann Carr (Dale Cox); and many nieces and nephews. Bill was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Patrick and Michael; and his sister, Sr. Kathleeen Carr, BVM. A Celebration of Life will be held later this summer.
