This website has been established in memory of our son & brother, Christopher Clayton Carr, who died on Thursday, January 20, 2011, at the age of 18 years old, just a few days shy of his 19th birthday. As a Boy Scout, Chris achieved numerous awards including the rank of Eagle Scout in 2009. A Charter Student at Claudia Taylor Johnson High School in San Antonio, TX, he achieved District 5A All-Area Honorable Mention Offensive Lineman. Chris was a June 2010 graduate of Claudia Taylor Johnson High School and worked at the JW Marriott while studying at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).

Every relationship is a work in progress

as you walk through this life. Sometimes the walk is in unison, side-by-side, at other times, it is on different paths moving in the same or opposite directions. People describe relationship statuses differently; it may be casual, acquaintance, best friend, spouse, partner, teammate, coworker, intimate, etc. And most only share our deepest feelings with those that we are intimately involved with, those that we have a very deep and close relationship with. So unlike the intimate relationships where we share our souls, our actions must speak louder than the words that come from our mouths.

Christopher had his own personal relationship with God and walked with Him. At times his walk was in unison, side-by-side and at other times a little off the path as he learned and grew. But just like you'd expect a loving Father to do, God's commitment to love Chris never wavered. If Chris never shared with you his deepest thoughts and his love of Christ, just remember his actions spoke louder than words. His actions exhibited through that incredible smile, his caring and compassionate nature and the genuine love he showed for all around him allowed him to let Christ shine through him. "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16 (NIV)




"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight" (Proverbs 3:5-6).

C2014 CCC Scholarship Recipients'

Christopher Clayton Carr, a 2010 graduate of Johnson High School, lived every moment of his young life to the fullest. He was an Eagle Scout, and his Eagle project is the flagstone pathway located in the front of the school campus. In January 2011, Chris left behind a school and community who had benefited from knowing him and his zest for life. He was well-known for his caring ways and a big smile that would melt your heart.

In his honor, the Christopher Clayton Carr Memorial Fund was founded by friends and family to help carry on Christopher’s memory through various areas that played a significant part in his life. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide recognition and financial assistance for a graduating senior from Johnson. The student selected for the scholarship must have demonstrated their ability and desire to achieve academically, and shown involvement & leadership in school activities and in the community.

The two students selected are Danielle Renee Diaz and Hunter Joseph Rittimann. Both students will be attending Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.
