How Did Justin Carr Passed Away?
I’m writing to let you know that Justin Carr, a student of ours and a member of HW’s 11th grade, passed away tragically. Justin passed away suddenly this afternoon. I am unable to adequately capture everything that Justin was in a few short paragraphs. He was an amazing young guy by any standard: scholar, athlete, singer, actor, and effervescent kid.
Huybrechts stated, “Our thoughts and prayers are with Justin’s family, especially his parents, Darrell and Susan.” Carr joined the swim team and was chosen as one of 42 students for the 2012–13 Harvard–Westlake Chamber Singers.
‘Grease’ and other plays at the school featured him as a lead actor and a student leader, according to KTLA News. He served as the club’s leader and was instrumental in getting Samuel L. Jackson, an accomplished actor, to speak on campus during Black History Month.
