Saturday Morning Quarterback

Billy Carr's life touched generations of Little Leaguers

Billy Howard Carr's career at The Lebanon Democrat bridged the era when newspapers were put together by hand and today's world in which everything short of the pressroom is done on the computer.

We lost Billy H. earlier this week after he spent some 65 of his 83 years watching this community change from his work place at this newspaper. Stories of his life have reflected on his career here and his military career, of which he was extremely proud.

Not noted as much, but just as important to Billy H. was his love of sports in general and baseball in particular. Some two generations of Lebanon youth played for his teams in the Kiwanis Little League.
