We attended church and school with the Carver's for many years, my mother worked with Coach at Lee Freshman, and he taught my daughter in driver's education just a few years ago. Coach was a truly awesome man with a great family. Praying for y'all in this difficult time.

Coach Carver ranks in my all time 5 best coaches. Ranks #1 as the absolute funniest and coolest of them all. The unspoken bond we developed is hard to find in this day and age. He coached me the fundamentals of life and in sports. The easy part of the game that many pros just don't know. Throw your elbow coming out of your stance, for example, will help propel you to a college scholarship. "Throw the bow up" as he would say, when you fling the discuss, will help you set a school record. Run over that cone, and you've flunked your driving test. Coach Carver was a friend when he didn't have to be. He was a coach because it was meant to be. He was a teacher of life because God let him be. Ranks #1 in my book.

Dear Family I knew and met your father in his latter days. He was hanging out in Marathon with the “grands”. I saw joy, delight and some frustration in those eyes because they only saw in part the stories that would be of life for these before him. I recognized it as my dad to looked at his “grands” too. Prayers as you all look into each other’s eyes and see …may you see his love in all the days you journey without him. Love, Peace, and Grace, Martha and Beth
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I coached with "coach" Carver at Stephenville H.S. Texas in the mid 1970's and enjoyed getting to know him. May he rest in peace.

Jim Carver was a great man, teacher and Coach. Nobody coached offensive lineman like Coach Carver. Coach Carver had more success with coaching football and track than anyone else. Jim had great skills in the classroom and invested in his students with all the caring and love he could give. All the Lee family loved Coach Carver and he loved us back. May God rest his soul in Wildcat country and forever know we will never forget Coach Jim Carver. A great man !

My memories of Jimmy Carver focus on his frequent laughter, skeptical chuckles, big smiles, and our shared passion for food!!!! He could have been a pro lineman or pro linebacker, with just a bit of luck! He was a giant of a man with a big heart!

Jim, was a GREAT neighbor back on Circle Dr. back in the late 50’s. Jim, Milton and I always had a basketball game going in his backyard. We did have a small problem with his little sister always getting in the way!😄😄 I know he will be missed by his family, but looks like he was a very good man.
