Michael Donovan Carrington was born on the beautiful island of Barbados, West Indies on November 26, 1950 to Victor and Esther Carrington. In his early professional life he worked as a mechanic for The Barbados Transport Board and later in the engineering department at the Hilton Hotel. He immigrated to the United Stated in the late 1970s and became a naturalized citizen of the U.S. in 1985. For the past 18+ years he worked as an valued member of the MTA Bridge and Tunnel Authority.
Michael died unexpectedly on June 5th 2020. He is predeceased by brothers Anthony and Ronald Carrington. He is survived by brothers: Jeffrey Carrington, Collin Carrington, Andrew Carrington and Dennis Roberts; sisters Margaret Carrington, Marcia Carrington, Sherril Watt, Patricia Rock, Aileen Allman and Maureen Ward. He is also survived by scores of cousins, nieces and nephews, here in the US, England and Barbados.
Though he was quiet and reserved, Michael was a man of many talents. He was a skilled mechanic by trade and a surprisingly great dancer. He loved to tell jokes and build kites from scratch. He loved classical music, "golden oldies," collecting watches and coins. He was extremely well read and could inform you on many topics. Michael will be missed dearly and will live in our hearts forever!
R.I.P. Beloved Brother, Uncle, Cousin and Friend.
