September 24, 1928 - December 28, 2021
John Howard Carter, Jr. age 93, passed away December 28, 2021. John, also known as Jack, was born September 24, 1928 in Canton, Ohio, the second of 4 children. His family moved to Perry, Ohio, where he excelled in academics and sports including track, football, basketball and baseball. He began his early career in the nursery industry, forming lifelong friends and a strong work ethic. John worked for Uniroyal for 40 years until his retirement as Commodity Manager. John married Jean Williams on July 17, 1948. They enjoyed a life of 5 children, square dancing, hugs, travel, and “ taking a drive around the block”, until her passing in 2004. Both were active members of the Painesville United Methodist Church. He married Rosemary Chiappone, an elementary school classmate, in 2005. They enjoyed bowling, golf, biking, and old movies, especially Westerns. He is survived by his wife, Rosemary; his children, Carl (Barb), Kathy, Kevin (Kathy) and Bill; as well as four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. John was preceded in death by his first wife, Jean; brothers, Robert and Donald; sister, JoAnn; and his son, John. John was well loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was a generous and compassionate man, helping others with his technical skills, blood donations and physical care of loved ones. He will be remembered in a private gathering for a life well lived. Celebrities go in 3’s; Betty White, John Madden and, in our opinion, John Carter. Arrangements entrusted to the Brunner Sanden Deitrick Funeral Home & Cremation Center, 8466 Mentor Ave., Mentor, OH 44060. Please offer condolences at www.brunners.com.
