Everett Carter, 93, of Brevard, passed away Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2021.

He was born June 28, 1927, in Schenectady, N.Y., to the late Emmett and Charlotte Carter. He was preceded in death by his sister, Caryl.

He served in the United States Navy during World War II, and then attended St. Lawrence University in New York, where he graduated in 1950 as a chemical engineer.

He started his career in Towanda, Pa., where he became general manager for Sylvania Corp., and made many dear friends. His career ultimately took him to positions domestically and around the world. In every location he met and made friends that would last a lifetime. He loved people and they loved him.

His outside interests took him down many diverse paths. From serving as president of the St. Paul Winter Carnival for two years, to church work, to serving on boards of countless corporations and banks. He loved a challenge and his enthusiasm and commitment to getting the job done "right" was something you could count on.

Anyone who knew him had an "Ev" story, or two. He enjoyed dancing, and he and his wife, Sue, would often be found at a local establishment near their cabin in northern Wisconsin, dancing the night away if there was a great band playing.

The little cabin in the woods brought many years of joy to them. A deer and bear habitat was developed, along with a stocked trout pond, and when it came time to sell the property, it was put into the National Land Conservation Trust to preserve the natural habitat for years to come.

As an avid outdoorsman, he hunted and fished all over the United States and Canada. In 2005 he and about 20 of the members of the Monroeton Gun Club in Pennsylvania completed a new clubhouse, where they hunt turkeys, deer and bear. The club holds an annual pig roast, where members and friends gather to eat, relax and see old friends.

It is important to note that he was a diehard fan of the Green Bay Packers. He dressed in his Packer attire for each game and cheered with enthusiasm whether they won or lost.

He will be missed dearly by countless friends and his family. He is survived by his devoted wife, Sue, and a blended family of five children, four grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, no services will be held at this time.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
