Belmont --- Rev. Kenneth Edward Carr of 5 Norton Street and a former resident of West Eaton went to be with his Lord and Savior on Monday, June 20, subsequent to an operation which revealed an inoperable condition. He was born on April 2, 1941 in Oneonta, a son of the late Kenneth and Jeannette Foster Carr.  He married Edith Burch Utter on July 24, 1970 who predeceased him.  He later married Anita Baird who survives.


Ken was a graduate of Hamilton High School, attended Bob Jones and Letourneau Universities, and graduated from Liberty University. He founded the Tri-County Septic Service.  During the course of his lifetime, Ken was a pastor at Columbus Quarter Baptist Church, West Eaton Baptist Church, First Baptist Church in Oswegatchie, and Second Baptist Church in Bowdenham, ME.  In addition, he was a North County Association Baptist Association Moderator.

In 1987 he was awarded a plaque as the Georgetown Fireman of the Year.   He was also an EMT, serving as Georgetown Squad Chief. He was Georgetown Town Councilman for 12 years and Water Superintendent for four years.  He was the author of the book entitled Preparing for my Departure. 


Ken and Anita enjoyed traveling around the country in their RV.  They also traveled to Puerto Rico three times, St John’s in the Virgin Islands and Israel.  While living in Belmont, Ken continued to preach occasionally, led Bible studies, and was president of the Board of Stewards at Knight’s Creek Evangelical Methodist Church in Scio.

Sorry to hear of Ken's passing. My condolences to Jim and Family. Lost touch with you all over the years, and was sad to see of his passing. I will not be able to attend as my step daughter is being married this Saturday. Our Dad's
were great friends and I remember to trips to visit as a young man. A lot of great memories. God Bless you all !

I am so saddened by the Homegoing of my brother and friend, Ken. Our friendship and fellowship go back - perhaps almost 30 years - to the times I was pastoring in Beaver Meadow, NY, and he was still at home schooling with Liberty University. It was an honor to be his proctor for his final exams. Through the years, we have done much together! I've spoken at his installation service, he spoke at mine here in Earlville just over 7 years ago. We emailed regularly - and yet he was always reminding me that we need to communicate more often. To Anita and the family - we grieve with you. I'm glad we met at my installation service. May the Lord be your comfort, and may the assurance - "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord" - be your daily hope, strength, and comfort. Thank you, Lord, for giving us such a good friend - to Your glory.

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your husband, Anita, as well as the step-children. Ken was a bright, intelligent guy who belied his appearance and I had a good deal of admiration for him. It sounds like his passing was not entirely expected, making everything harder for all. God Bless you all. I know he is still with you. Karen
