    My father was a fun loving man. whether it was his electrical company or his haunted house he was always hard at work. One thing for sure is myself and many others never went without. He was always looking out for the next man, so much so it sometimes cost him dearly. My father too me will best be remembered for his teachings and directions. Today iam so blessed to be able too call Terry Carter Sr. my father. You were loved by many dad. Rest easy big guy…

    Terry is my uncle and what a great uncle he was. From helping me if I had an electrical issue to letting me go behind the scenes of Death Valley Haunted Woods. He never let anyone scare is great niece, Skye. He was a funny uncle. He loved the holidays from Halloween to Christmas. Family get togethers where so much fun as when the adults played the dirty Santa gift exchange. He always tried to cheat to get what he wanted and if someone took it he would pout… we would always laugh as it was all in fun with him. He always made me smile. I am glad he chose his favorite day to go home. I am happy he is no longer suffering and laying up in a hospital bed in a nursing home with no family that could visit. He is home with family and that is an answered prayer. He was well loved and will be truly missed

    I remember Terry in junior high and high school. I had a crush on him in the 8th grade. We had math class together. We had so much fun. I am so very sorry that he has passed. I remember his motor cycle, I still have a couple of pictures of him at Neely’s Bend jr High. He always had an “easy smile”. I will miss him.
