Bernard Carr (1923-2012)

Bernard Carr was born in Berlin, Germany in 1923. His family was not religious but he did attend a private Jewish school. His family had a summer home about 50 miles from Berlin. They fled Germany under unusual circumstances, partially because his father had a successful private banking business. They lived in Nice, France for two years and then Paris before coming to Portland, Oregon. He was an only child. He was very close to his cousin, Lorre Labby, who not only lived in Portland, but was also his business partner. Bernard married Eva Lehr and they divorced in 1970. They had two sons, Tommy and Leonard.
