I met Carter at the Hacienda in the early 80's when I worked with Sandy. In 1995 I had the pleasure of working with Carter at the Desert Inn until it closed in 2000. I am grateful and feel blessed to have been a part of their lives. May peace be with you Michaele Bunata

We worked together for a while and he was great stagehand and IATSE #720 member. I will miss his gravelly voice and humor. RIP Carter!

I'm so sorry to read this. We haven't seen each other in at least 45 plus years but we were friends at Valley High School and we lived in the same neighborhood. I used to come over to your apartment and I wrote to you when you were in Vietnam. I'm sure I have your letters still. You were a really nice guy and I'm sorry you're gone . RIP. Condolences to your family and friends.

Carter and I hung out a lot in High School(Valley) for years. We partied hard and enjoyed life. When Uncle Sam decided to draft us, Carter enlisted in the Air Force and I became a draft dodger. We joked about how he became a radio operator and they put him on the ground to tell the planes where to go. Carter was a great guy and a great friend. Sad to hear of his passing.

Carter loved his family and was so proud of his children. May you feel his presence watching over you now.
I can remember when we were kids staying at Grandma Bea and Grandpa Kenny's house. Carter was always ready to keep us laughing and in trouble. I've always loved my cousin Carter. Knowing he was a good man and was loved by others brings me and, I hope you, a sense of peace.
Please let us know if we can help with anything.

My sincere condolences to Carters loving family. I have very fond memories of Carter from our days at J.C. Fremont Jr. High School in Las Vegas. He played tuba in the band and I played violin in orchestra! Together we attended the Beatles concert at the Convention Center, of course you couldnt hear anything except for the screaming! His heart was pure gold, as all who knew him will agree. Prayers for love and strength to all.

Carter, you were a great influence on me as I began in the AV industry in the late '90s. You showed me how to have high standards while simultaneously showing patience and kindness. Rest in peace, friend.
