Carl A. “Tom” Carnagey, 82, died Sept. 27, 2006, at Baker City.

His memorial service was Saturday at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Baker City.

Tom was born at Blue Lake near Eureka, Calif., on July 17, 1924, to Carl S. and Mary J. Carnagey.

Tom will be remembered for his love of the outdoors and for his faith in his God Jehovah. Most of Tom’s employment was in the woods. He was a miner in the Prineville area and a timber faller in Oregon and Montana. He also worked in various sawmills around the Northwest.

Tom enjoyed playing country music. He played several instruments, including the fiddle, the guitar and the banjo. He even had his own band, The Blue Mountain Ramblers.

He also enjoyed raising animals on his farm in Eagle Valley and liked riding his mule, Abe. Tom especially enjoyed telling others about the promises in the Bible, including the hope of the resurrection and the promise that soon the Earth will be a paradise where pain, suffering and death will be no more.

Survivors include his wife, Connie; two daughters, Patricia and Barbara; two sons, Joseph and Philip; a sister, Laura Bell; and several grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, and three sisters.

Memorial contributions may be made to The Watchtower through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home, P.O. Box 543, Halfway, OR 97834.
