Obituary For Brendan D. Coarr

On Sunday, September 18th 2022, the veil between the worlds lifted and Brendan D. Coarr crossed through. Surrounded by his family and close friends, he left to join loved ones already lost. Being only 52 years old, Brendan leaves behind his loving wife Florence (Ebbe) Coarr (52) and his two daughters, Brianna Coarr (21) and Olivia Coarr (19), and family dog Chief. His best friend/brother in law John Ebbe and numerous good Friends that stood by his side. His mother Mary Carey & Brother Francis Coarr. On the other side he will be reunited with his late Father Louis (Frank) Coarr & Sister Theresa Coarr, along with several other family members, friends, and faithful four legged companions Bandit, Buddy, and Siku. Born April 7th 1970, Brendan grew up in Rockland Massachusetts with his family. He spent his youth causing chaos at local fishing holes, spending time with his friends, biking around town, and swimming at Hartsuff Park where he first met Florence(Flo) around the age of 5. In 1988, Brendan graduated from South Shore Regional Vocational Technical High School from the Culinary Arts program. As he grew, so did his friendships and the number of crazy adventures that took place. More fishing, this hobby never went away. Camping trips where he often wandered around the camp barefoot causing the famous bump. Skiing trips, where our sources say he crashed a lot. Making his Station Wagon a convertible by sawing the top off. Hanging out in bars playing darts. Starting to fall in love with Flo. On September 14th of 1996 the two got married. On that day Brendan made his promise to Flo to make her laugh at least once a day. In 1998, they bought a plot of land to build a house in Halifax and the day the papers were signed they enjoyed a pizza dinner while sitting on the floor. In 2001 Brendan became a father and again in 2003. Brendan was well known around all of the courts and fields in town, for the girls’ sports games. Wearing a team shirt, cheering from the sidelines, and volunteering to help with any tournaments his girls were in until they aged out. He often disappeared on walks only to be picked up by friends and go missing for hours forgetting to let his family know. He was a regular at the Halifax Cumbies where he’d always get a large iced coffee, cream, no sugar, at least twice a day.

“It’s time for me to go walk Siku”

The family is having a wake for Brendan on Friday, September 23rd 2022. At Magoun- Biggins funeral home in Rockland from 5-8 all are welcome. In memory of him we invite those attending to feel comfortable wearing shorts and boat shoes (and no socks!) as this was Brendan’s signature look after his back surgery.

    Dearest ALL family and close friends of Brendan's- These words come from the pain as well as joy in my heart. Strangely, I never met Brendan but have known all about him through my dearest Glenn , who I lost just a year ago. He always spoke so highly of him. I know he was a good husband, father, and friend. I did, however, have several chances to speak to Brendan when trying to connect with John and he was so sweet helping me get messages to John and then following through with messages back. I told Glenn to watch out for him and do some fishing with him. I am so sorry to you all for your loss and I will be including Brendan on my daily THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS list. Simone

    Thinking back I cant believe how lucky I was to be apart of this family, but also to been seen as apart of the family by everyone. Livy and I were always inseparable and Brendan and Flo never failed to be there to make anything we wanted possible. Brendan and Flo pushed harder than any parents I know and you could see it even being as young as I was. If I was anywhere, I was at their house or supporting a softball game and her was always there cheering the loudest. I'm grateful to say that many of my favorite memories are with this family and that I'll always have those to help keep his memory alive.

    Dear Flo, Brianna & Olivia. My deepest sympathies for the loss of your husband, partner, Dad and friend. He was taken from everyone who knew & loved him way too soon. Take comfort in knowing that he is no longer suffering and God has taken him in. He is now watching over all of you. Brendan/Dad will live on in all of your wonderful memories you created together as a family. Flo, Happy Anniversary (belated). Such a gift to find one's partner in life. Peace & love to you all.

    Brendan, You fought the good fight. Knowing what the end result might be. Now you are at peace fishing wherever and whenever you want. I'm glad we hung together not as cousins but as friends. Although not as much as I liked or should have.. Thanks for attending WSA game dinners and pig roasts and the after hours get togethers with me over the years. You were missed at this year's on Saturday before you kept for the promised land. I'm glad you attended our wedding as I remember us singing Knockin on Heavens Door karaoke Guns and Roses version. Now here you are there looking down on us. Eventually we will meet again on the other side at peace with no worries. I will keep you in my heart and will continue to send prayers and love to Flo,Brianna and Olivia Peace cuz May the four winds blow you safely home
