He was a former employee of Burlington Industries and a member of the Second Baptist Church of Monticello.

Mr. Carter was an avid Razorback fan and enjoyed playing the guitar and banjo. He had a huge heart, loved everyone and loved being involved with whatever others were doing. He brought joy to everyone he was around and never met a stranger.

He was born February 29, 1960, in Dallas, Texas and was the son of Mary Bernice Hall Carter and the late Olen Odell Carter.
