John Terah "Johnny" Carver, born May 4, 1943, died peacefully Tuesday, July 31, 2018.
Johnny was born and raised in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi and resided in Fairhope, Alabama the last four years of his life. He loved to watch old black and white western movies and was an avid fan of John Wayne.
Johnny was a man of few words, but had kind words for everyone, including funny one-liners.
He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Edith and Warren Carver; and his infant brother, Paul.
He is survived by his brothers, Warren Carver and Dennis Carver; and his sister, Dianne (Dave) Fish. He is also survived by his 11 nieces and nephews; as well as 28 grand-nieces and nephews.
His personality was reflected in his laughter and permanent smile. Johnny worked over 40 years in the family business, Monti-Carver Plumbing Co. in Bay St. Louis and never met a pipe he couldn't fix.
Mass and visitation is planned for Saturday, Aug. 11, 2018 at Our Lady of the Gulf in Bay St. Louis.
Visitation will be from 9-10 a.m. with funeral mass at 10 a.m.
