December 10, 1962 – June 17, 2021
With heavy hearts, we announce that Carter passed away on Thursday June 17, 2021, in the Grace General Hospital, at the age of 58.
Carter is survived by his wife of 18 ½ years, Deidre; stepdaughter Stephanie; brother Clare (Anne) and their children Mariah and Eric; as well as his many friends.
Carter, spending more than half his life working as a pressman, managed quite an array of hobbies and interests. Whatever he set his mind to, he did it fully. Numerous motorcycles throughout the years offered him the freedom of the open road. He was adventuresome with his cooking skills. He often harvested the bounty of his gardening talents. Home renovations and maintenance brought out his creativity as a handyman. Years ago, his freezer was stocked with an abundance of game from hunting conquests. He enjoyed socializing and slurping a barley sandwich at the community Fort Rouge Legion.
In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal services held. Carter’s family kindly requests that all of his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by watching the photo-biography above.

He is gone
You can shed tears that he is gone
Or you can smile because he has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what he would want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
