He was preceded in death by his grandparents John and Margaret Douglas, and Earnest and Cassie Carter, all of Alcoa.

He is survived by his wife Melissa; daughters Whitney and Landry; parents EJ and Brenda Carter; sisters Melinda (Rod) Owen of Fayetteville and Tamara (Jimmy) Fischer of Senoia; parents-in-law Robert and Faye McCartt of Harriman, Tenn.; as well as extended family, friends, and coworkers who will miss him greatly.
