I’m Coming Home Lord, Don’t Call My Name Until I Get There.
“For those I love and for those who loved me
.”

Jerry Allen Carter, a much-loved son, brother, father, grandfather, uncle, and cousin was born August 5, 1953, in Monroe, Louisiana, to the union of Essie Bea Simmons Carter and the late Aaron Carter. Jerry dedicated his life to Christ at an early age and believed that through the Lord all things were possible. He attended Thomastown High School in Tallulah, Louisiana, before continuing his studies at Central Texas College in Killeen, Texas.

Following the completion of his education, Jerry joined the United States Army, proudly serving his country for 22 years including during Operation Desert Storm and retired from the military as a Master Sergeant in August 1995. Still, his love for this country was deep-rooted and remained an important aspect of Jerry’s character well beyond his years of duty. Jerry had a deep passion for hunting and fishing that he inherited from his father who was also an avid outdoorsman. For the past eight years, Jerry was a member of a hunting group called Bucks-Are-Us. He looked forward to the hunting season each year and the opportunity to hunt with group members he called his great friends.

Jerry made his transition on November 15th, 2018, in Huntsville, Alabama. In addition to his father, Jerry is also preceded in death by his stepfather Frank White, Sr. Celebrating a life of cherished memories are his mother, Essie Bea Simmons White of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, two loving daughters, whom were the apples of his eye, Chantal Jadine Carter (Radcliff, Kentucky) and Shana Edwards (Akron, Ohio), one grandson, Jacoby Ellis Mclane, four sisters, Ollie M. Carter, Shirley Faye Carter-McAfee (Donald), Joyce M. Carter-Boyd (Tommy) and Jackie J. Carter, three brothers, Henry L. Simmons (Gloria), Kenneth W. Carter and Frank K. White Jr. (Angenika), a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and extended loved ones, as well as his dedicated and devoted Huntsville family Robert and Gladys Lewis, goddaughter, Kimberly, and his four-legged companion, JoJo Carter. Jerry was extremely excited to have a grandson. He talked about how much he looked forward to passing along his passion for hunting and fishing to his little buddy.

Jerry’s love for people, faithfulness to his daughters and grandson, and devotion to his loved ones made him a pillar of his family and widely beloved by all those that knew him – no matter how briefly. Although he is no longer with us in the physical form Jerry has made a lasting impression in the lives of all he touched and will be remembered as the remarkable man that he lived his life as.

The Carter family will receive guests from 6:00 P.M. – 7:00 P.M., Saturday, December 1, 2018, at the Royal Chapel of Memories.

Public viewing will be held from 11:00 A.M. – 8:00 P.M., Saturday, December 1, 2018, at the Royal Funeral Home.
