Alton Parker Carter Sr., 74

Alton Parker Carter Sr., 74, of Wake Forest, North Carolina lost his fight with cancer on Oct. 29, 2020, surrounded by his family.

Alton was born to parents Lewis and Ruth Carter, on May 20, 1946, in Warrenton, North Carolina. He enjoyed retirement after many years in the propane industry. He was an avid sports fan who enjoyed watching all types of sporting events and loved to talk about them with his sons. He loved Alabama Football (Roll Tide) and Duke Basketball (Let’s Go, Duke). He had strong political beliefs and enjoyed following current events. You always knew exactly where he stood. One of his best friends was an Australian Shepherd named Ellie, who he loved to spend his days with.

He will be missed dearly by his wife of 37 years, Doris Carter. They enjoyed spending time together in retirement. There were many joyous years spent in Wake Forest, where they raised their family.

Alton was preceded in death by his father, Lewis, his mother, Ruth, his brother Lewis Hunter and his son Glenn Carroll. Left to cherish his memory are his sister Hilda Green (Bill); his children Alton Carter Jr (Brandy), Danny Carroll (Clara), Kim Wood (Greg), Robbie Fleming (Kaleena); his grandchildren; and his great grandchildren.

A service celebrating Alton’s life was at Bright Funeral Home on Sunday, Nov 1. Visitation was at 10 a.m. with the service following at 11 a.m. immediately followed by a graveside service at Pearce Baptist Church, 4634 Pearces Rd, Zebulon with Pastor Alan Skinner officiating.
