In Memory Of John W Carr


On Sunday, July 13, 2010, I was privileged to attend a memorial service in Georgetown, KY at the Toyota Plant. My son, John W. Carr, an employee at Toyota when he died was one of the person's remembered. As you may recall, John was the cyclist who was killed by a hit and run driver while riding in a Triathlelon in Louisville, Ky on August 1, 2009.

The service that was held in his honor as well as his fellow workers who died during that year was beautiful and very tastefully done. He was remembered with an eulogy by one of his co-workers and his wife was presented with a small gift, a glass paperweight with "In Memory of John W. Carr" engraved on it. There was a prayer offered for the deceased workers.

After the service everyone was invited to go to the monument, Toyota has graciously erected a monument in honor of their emplyees upon which all the names of deceased employees is engraved. It is a beautiful monument and does these people a great honor.

Toyota is to be commended for their caring of their employees. Toyota is truly is family,
