Stan Tarr Obituary, Death – Stanley Tarr, who was 91 years old and lived in Grand Rapids and Ludington, Michigan, passed away on Monday surrounded by his loving family. He had lived in Michigan all of his life. He lived in both of these cities at the same time. He was born in the city of Muskegon in the state of Michigan, and his parents were William Tarr and the late Maude (Fisher) Tarr. His wife of 71 years, Marjorie (Mardy), their children Steve (Ann) Tarr, Susan Churchill, Patty (David) Roys, and Michael (Elizabeth) Tarr, as well as four granddaughters and two great-grandchildren, make up his family.
His marriage to Marjorie (Mardy) began in 1946. His wife, Marjorie, is the only one he leaves behind (Mardy). After receiving his degree with high honors from Ferris State University, Forrest went on to achieve great success while serving in the United States Marine Corps. Forrest was a wonderful husband and father, as well as a prosperous businessman, as evidenced by the fact that he served as president of PB Gast and was the founder of Preferred Building Maintenance.
The kind and generous nature of Forrest is what people remember him for. He has a wickedly amusing sense of humor and was impelled by an intense want to find joy in all aspects of his life. Forrest and Mardy were a joyful couple who made the most of everything that life had to offer. This included going on adventures together, playing golf at both Sunnybrook and Lincoln Hills Country Clubs, and spending their entire lives as members of Westminster Presbyterian Church.
Both clubs are located in the San Fernando Valley. Forrest was a highly creative individual, as shown throughout his life by the outstanding paintings and carpentry he produced. He found great joy in being able to spend time with his loved ones, whether it was taking in the breathtaking scenery of Ludington or traveling for extended periods of time to a variety of destinations around the world. In lieu of customary flower tributes, the family would appreciate it very much if you could make a contribution to the American Heart Association.
