John E. Carey

Norfolk – John Edward Carey, 78, of the 300 block of Faulk Road, went to be with the Lord and his Grandson Justin, on July 18, 2002. Born in Waterville, Maine, he was serving his country in 1945 when he married his wife of 56 years, Alice Carey and began to build a family in Norfolk, Va. John Carey’s devotion to his family and community continued throughout his distiguished career as an Aircraft Rework Supervisor at the NARF NAS, Norfolk. After retirement his days were filled with caring for his family, spending time with his wife, and his cherished Monday outings with the "over the hill gang".

He is survived by his wife Alice, his daughter Bonny Griffin, his son’s Dale Carey, Mike Carey and Timothy Carey, his sisters Claudette Belanger and Ruth Greenier, his brother Les Carey and his wife Lillian, his seven grandchildren: Shandra Witcher-Plourde, Eric Witcher, Carmen Carey, Jesse Carey, Joshua Carey, Jeremy Carey, Jake Carey, James Meehan, Scott Meehan, and his four greatgrandchildren: Dylan Plourde, Gabrielle Plourde, Chase Witcher, and Gavin Witcher. His loss is also felt by his many nieces and nephews, his cousins, his son-in-law and three-daughter-in-laws, and the many members of his church and neighborhood whose lives he touched.

He is predeceased by his mother Ester, his father and Distinguished Service Cross recipient Edward Carey; sisters Dorothy, Jannette, Antoinette; his brother James; and his beloved Grandson Justin Carey.

John Carey was a man of strength, wisdom, and compassion. He set the standard for family devotion that will be his legacy. His pride in his family, his unconditional love for each and every member, will forever be remembered.

A memorial service will be held on Monday July 22, 11OO am, at Aldersgate United Methodist Church, 5767 Sellger Drive, Norfolk VA 23502. Memorial donations may be made to the American Heart Association or the Aldersgate United Methodist Church.
