Benjamin John "Jay" Carter

April 22, 2013 

Benjamin John Carter, 39, passed away at home on April 20th, 2013. Born March 17, 1974 in Fayetteville, NC, he was a loving husband to Rebecca Ann Carter, and amazing father to Madison Drew Carter & Hannah Leigh Carter. In addition, he was the strong son of Juli TePaske & Jack Carter, younger brother to a wonderful sister, Jessica Carter Reed, Uncle Bubba to her twin daughters, and brother-in-law to Major Raymond Lowell Reed, III of the US army. He is also survived by both of his grandmothers, Charlotte V. Carter of Des Moines, IA and Yette TePaske of Sioux Center, IA.

Jay served the USMC from 1993 - 1997. His passion for his country is difficult to describe. He was born & bred a North Carolinian and a Tarheel through & through. He bled Carolina Blue. Jay never met a stranger, he always made a friend where ever he went. There will be a private viewing for his immediate family and a wake held at his home in Raleigh, NC. In lieu of flowers, please send memorials to The Wounded Warrior Project, in his loving memory. Hoo Ra!
