Read more about the life story of JOHN and share your memory.
John Carberry, 67, of Wheatland, Wyoming, passed away on Sunday, September 10, 2023 at Platte County Memorial Hospital in Wheatland.
John was born in Wheatland to his late parents, Don and Olive “Dolly” (Baker) Carberry on Friday, May 18, 1956.
John was an incredibly hard worker, known for his dedication and perseverance, often setting out before sunrise to provide for his family. Throughout his life, John held various titles including concrete foreman, worksite superintendent, and business owner. However, these titles were always secondary to the ones he cherished most: husband, dad, uncle, grandpa and ‘old fart.’
John had a strong passion for sports, particularly the Denver Broncos. However, his true affinity lay with Bulldog athletics. He spent countless hours traveling to and from sporting events for his children, cooking for the teams with the help of his wife, Jean, and even directed the remodel of the Wheatland High School weight room when his boys were in school.
John will be deeply missed by his loving wife of 41 years, Jean; sons, Matt and Mark; daughter-in-law, Anna; grandchildren, Griffen, Bastian, and Isla; and as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
John is preceded in death by his parents, Don on June 1, 2001 and Dolly on October 7, 1965; brothers, Kenny Lipps on September 14, 2002 and Jack Lipps on January 29, 2022.
A memorial service will be held to honor John’s life and legacy at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to Platte Valley Bank, 200 Sixteenth Street, Wheatland, Wyoming 82201, in memory of John Carberry, to support Wheatland High School Athletics.
The Gorman Funeral Homes – Platte Chapel of Wheatland are in charge of the arrangements.
