Vale Len Carr Respected Honorary Member of ANZROC Victoria

 

Fiona Cranny, daughter of Len Carr advised of her father’s passing on 27/09/2020 aged 82 years after a short illness with late diagnosis of lung cancer. Fiona said that her father joined the bank in Bendigo followed by a journey around country Victoria that included terms in Bendigo, Ballarat, Pakenham, Mildura, Geelong and suburbs and on retirement Len had been manager Corio and finally Belmont in Geelong.

 

Apart from his career in banking and caring for his family he had two passions in life. The first was his love of music and singing, often  performing in musical theatre and light opera in Bendigo and Geelong Light Opera groups. His second was the Belmont Bowls Club where after retirement he served in management and treasurer roles for more than 20 years.

 

Our condolences were extended to Fiona , her mother Norma and the family.
