Mr. Carr was a broadcaster and account executive from 1959 to 1969 at WIBG AM in Philadelphia.

Mr. Carr served in the 488th Light Pontoon Company as a bridge builder from 1943 to 1946 and earned two battle stars. He was discharged with the rank of sergeant.

A native of Gloucester, N.J., he graduated cum laude from Temple University in 1950.

William G. Allen Jr.

Steel worker

Services for William George Allen Jr., a steel worker who died Friday in a Middle River automobile accident, were to be held at 11 a.m. today at the Bruzdzinski Funeral Home, 1407 Eastern Ave. in Essex.

Mr. Allen, 43, spent more than two decades laboring in area steel mills. The Chase resident was an avid pool player, hunter and crabber.

Mr. Allen grew up in Baltimore near Memorial Stadium and left the city for a time as a teen-ager to live with an aunt in Frostburg, where he graduated from Beall High School in 1972.

As a young man, he returned to Baltimore and got a job with Eastern Stainless Steel Co. in Essex, where his father worked. He worked for the company through years of downturns in the industry -- parlaying experience and hard work into a fragile living.

"He was a good man," said his brother, Donny Allen, 42. "He had about eight years left until retirement, but they were selling off the company, and it was getting tougher and tougher to hold onto a job.

"He was really looking forward to hitting 50 and moving to West Virginia with his family. All his life, he loved hunting and the solitude of the woods."

In addition to his brother, Mr. Allen is survived by his wife, the former Marlene Hollern; three children, Bill, Donna and Tommy, all of Chase; his parents, Donna and William George Allen Sr. of Aero Acres; and a sister, Jennie Gosnell of Essex.

Elizabeth J. Andreae, 100, who many years ago loved to take steamships to visit a 200-acre Calvert County tobacco farm her family had owned since 1752, died of pneumonia July 7 at Union Memorial Hospital.

She was born Elizabeth Jones in Baltimore and took secretarial courses before marrying C. Norman Andreae Sr. in 1927. Mr. Andreae, a pajama factory manager, died in 1957.

Mrs. Andreae, who lived in Tudor Arms Apartments in North Baltimore, belonged to the Greenway Garden Club, Three Arts Club, and the Women's Club of Mount Washington. Services were to be held at 11 a.m. today at Roland Park Presbyterian Church, 4801 Roland Ave. She is survived by a son, C. Norman Andreae Jr. of Mount Washington.
