Early life and education
Carry grew up in the Lake Meadows neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. He attended Hales Franciscan High School, where, at age 15, he joined the Spartan Players, an acting group. He discovered a love of acting with the group, performing in plays such as Hamlet and West Side Story. After touring the country with the Spartan Players, Carry joined the Chicago Actors Repertory Company, performing with them for four years. Afterwards, Carry stayed in Chicago, "basically getting into no good", he told writer Marc Shapiro. He attended Quincy College, but only for one year. His family encouraged him to move to California and live with uncle in Los Angeles to "get back on [his] feet."
Once in Los Angeles, Carry entered Loyola Marymount University, where he received a bachelor's degree in film and TV production. He stayed at the university, and completed a master's degree in communication arts.
In the TV series The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. with Bruce Campbell, which aired in 1993 and 1994, Carry played the part of Brisco's one-time rival and fellow bounty hunter Lord Bowler (a.k.a. James Lonefeather), who then became Brisco's best friend and sidekick.
He also portrayed the main villain Sho'nuff in the film The Last Dragon.
Carry's final appearance as an actor was in the season one episode "Eating The Young" on the CBS series The Unit in 2006.
He had also guest starred on three episodes of the ABC/Disney sitcom Boy Meets World, once as a college professor and later as Sgt. Alvin Moore, father of series regular Angela Moore (Trina McGee). As a result of Carry's death, the character of Sgt. Moore is revealed to have died as well (off-screen) in the years between Boy Meets World and the second season of its sequel series Girl Meets World, which aired on Disney Channel.
Carry's family included Ronald, his brother, and Helen, his mother, who is a minister with the Christ Universal Temple in Chicago. He married twice; his second wife was Naomi Carry. Carry died on August 19, 2008 of pancreatic cancer at the age of 56.
