James Carter

December 6, 1971 — February 6, 2021

James M. Carter, age 49, of Perrinton, passed unexpectedly on Saturday, February 6, 2021.

James wasn’t just a truck driver; he was a trucker. He loved being on the road and seeing the different parts of the country he traveled too. When he wasn’t on the road, James loved going camping, fishing, and hunting. He was a master in the kitchen and loved to bake and cook; his apple crisp and spinach lasagna were some of his family’s favorites. James was also an ordained minister. However, what James loved the most on earth was his family, especially his children and grandchildren. James will forever be remembered by those who loved him and deeply missed by everyone who knew him.

Surviving James is his dad and stepmom, Bob & Marsha Carter; fiancé, Shannon Wetzel; daughters, Sierra; Gabrielle; Jasmine (Richard); Della; sons, Travis (Adrianne) and Trinity (Annalise); 8 grandchildren with 3 soon to be born grandchildren; many sisters and brothers; lots of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

James was preceded in death by his son, Justin Carter; mom, Rosemary Patterson; and grandparents, Bud & Juanita Carter.
