Arnold "Arnie" Ray Carrier Obituary

Arnold (Arnie) Ray Carrier, age 72 was born Saturday, March 3, 1951, to the Rev. Alfred & Elizabeth Coffman Carrier.  Arnie was born at home in the Geneva Community of Lincoln County, Kentucky.  He left his earthly home for his great reward in Heaven on Thursday, January 11, 2024.

To mourn his passing, Arnie leaves behind two children, whom he raised, Peggy (Tommy) and Timmy (Leanne); three grandchildren, who were his pride and joy, Michaela (Greg), Daniel (Stephanie), and McKenzie (Joey); two brothers, Joe (Jane) and Mike (Pam) Carrier; a niece, nephew, two great-nieces, a host of cousins; special cousin and life-long friend, Ron Patterson; and one aunt, Peggy Coffman.

Arnie was preceded in death by his parents, Rev. Alfred & Elizabeth Carrier; and grandparents, Thelmur & Martha Coffman and Joe & Fanny Carrier. 

Arnie was of the Pentecostal faith.  He was faithful to his God, loved going to church, and feasting on the word.

Arnie was a kind and gentle man.  He loved his children, but his grandchildren were his pride and joy.  In his 3 ½ year stay in the hospital, he loved when his kids, family, and friends came to visit.  However, his grandchildren put the real smile on his face.

Arnie also enjoyed Southern Gospel music, Bluegrass, and Bluegrass Gospel music. In his younger years, he also attended several concerts and Bluegrass festivals.

Arnie worked for “Chandler Egg” for 20 plus years and owned and operated it until its closing.  He then went to work for “Papa Johns” in Danville for 20 plus years, until his retirement because of health issues.

If you didn’t know him by “Arnie” then chances are you knew him by “The Egg Man”, “The Pizza Man” or to his close friends and family, “Barney”.
