On March 19, 2020, Gary E Carter traveled from this world to Eternity. He was surrounded by his loving family and left this world with a smile knowing he was so loved. He was a believer in Jesus Christ and always had many questions. Now he has all the answers.

He leaves behind his loving wife of 30 years, Mary Anne, 6 children, Natalie (Michael) Dempsey, Roudey (Jessica) Carter, Jonathon (Miriam) Swearingen, Justin Carter, Nathan (Courtney) Swearingen and estranged daughter Michelle (Vasco) DeMello and her 3 children Sasha, DeMitri and Mia.

He has 10 grandchildren, Zachary (Ary) Dempsey, Samantha Dempsey, Kyle Dempsey, Rain, Addie and Grace Mesecke, Micah and Gabriel Swearingen, Scarlet Steadman and Felix Swearingen, 2 great grandchildren Carter Rae and Aiden Dempsey.

He always said how blessed and grateful he was for his sobriety and the program that led him to a life of peace, love and friendship.

He was humbled to have such good friends and family that loved and supported him.

He is dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. Rest in Peace Carter, until we meet again.

A celebration of Life will be held at the Wheeling Vineyard, 647 Warden Run Rd, Wheeling, WV 26003 on November 10 at 600 pm.
