“The LORD is my strength and my defense ; he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
We were able to visit with Chuck and Mary Ellen Brister yesterday while we were visiting David’s brother, Donald, and his family yesterday. Please pray for both families.
Please pray for David’s sister, Bonnie, and her family as they prepare for Harold Newman’s services.
William Frederick “Freddie” Carter
March 01, 1936 – January 29, 2020
William Frederick “Freddie” Carter passed away peacefully on January 29, 2020 after losing his courageous battle with cancer. He was born on March 1, 1936 in the beautiful hills of St. Helena Parish where he was raised, made his life, and raised his family. He only left the farm a few years to serve his country as a US Marine, an honor he was extremely proud of. He was an insurance salesman for almost 60 years and a real estate agent and appraiser. However, he always considered himself a farmer, for he was happiest there. He is survived by his wife and “best girlfriend” of 57 ½ years, Glancy Palmer “Tiny” Carter; son, William Matthews “Matt” Carter (Kenya); daughters, Amy Lynn Carter and Cindy Ann Carter; granddaughter, Emma Lea Carter; and grandson, William Seth Carter. Preceded in death by his parents , Prentiss Henson Carter, Sr. and Rebecca Matthews Carter; brother, Prentiss Henson Carter, Jr.; and sister, Betty Jo Carter Koger. Freddie was proud of his many accomplishments, especially his hunting trophies that he gathered around the world. However, he was most proud of his children. Freddie was an integral part of the Greensburg Community where he served on many boards and organizations as well as a member of First Baptist Church in Greensburg. Visitation at First Baptist Church, Greensburg, from 9:00AM until religious services at 12:00PM on Saturday, February 1, 2020. Interment will follow in Greensburg Cemetery, Greensburg, LA.
