Charles K. Carter, 69

Church in Miami, FL, at a young age. He attended the Phyllis Wheatley Middle School and graduated from Booker T. Washington High School in 1958 where he was a good student and popular.
He spent his summers in Savannah and Collins, GA, where he was afforded the opportunity to bond with his extended family. While living in Miami, he discovered his passion for working with people who were in bereavement and thus started working at Frances Funeral Home as a mortician and funeral director. After doing this for some years he decided to get into Law Enforcement and made a big move to New York City to work on the New York Police Department. He advanced his career at the Police Department and within five years he became a Supervisor.

Jones where he was a manager and director of funerals until 2005. He also worked with Miller Funeral Home in Hinesville, GA, and Sexton - Hall. Before his unexpected death, he was looking forward to working in the funeral home business once again. Lead by the Holy Spirit, Charles re - dedicated his life to God while residing in Reidsville, GA, at the Springfield Missionary Baptist Church.
Charles heard Godís voice on April 11, 2008, when he entered into eternal rest. He was preceded in death by four brothers, Moses, Eric, Harold and Aaron.
