I would like to send out an honorable mention to all Paramedics and Medical Staff involved and Evergreen Cremation for all their services, very much appreciated, thank-you.
Carter enjoyed life to its fullest, he was well known for his cheerful disposition, extraordinary caring ways and his silly jokes. Carter was a defender of women and children and possessed a chivalry not often seen in men of his age.
Carter was cremated and a local service will be held with friends and family to commemorate his life on his birthday, July 4th 2023 , starting 6:00 pm at Swy-a-Lana Park in Maffeo Sutton Park Gazebo in Nanaimo,BC.
There will be a BBQ and Potluck (Spirit Feast) which I believe Carter would just love!
Carter will forever be PROFOUNDLY missed yet never forgotten...
The world was a kinder place with Carter on it. Remembered as a Good Man!
