CARTER, Pastor Roy Carter - Obituary | Print |

CARTER, Pastor Roy -

Carter_RoyAt the Haliburton Hospital on Tuesday morning, April 14, 2015 at the age of 85.

Roy will be sorely missed by his children Ruth, Jo-Anne (Glenn) Johnson, Lynn (Selwin) Gentle, and Stephen, 20 grandchildren, and 22 great grandchildren.

Predeceased by his parents Clifford and Lillian, his wife Clara, and two grandchildren.

He worked many years for Kodak Canada, where as the top service man, he repaired and maintained business contract machines in Toronto and made many trips across Canada troubleshooting problems. In addition, he spent several years as an instructor in their training department.

After taking early retirement, he became a chaplain at Pearson International Airport, and in later years, served as pastor at the Eagle Lake Community Church.

He played many roles in his life: runner, pianist, repairman, teacher, preacher, pastor, counsellor, photographer and photo editor, computer expert, comedian... but he is best defined by what he was — an encourager, a prayer warrior, and a man of faith. And it is those three qualities that made him the caring son, husband, father, and grandfather whose memory will be held dear by his family and friends.

Arrangements out of Haliburton. A Celebration of Roy's Life will be held at a later date.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Eagle Lake Community Church, West Guilford Baptist Church, HHHSF - Hospice, or HHHSF - Palliative Care Unit would be appreciated by the family.
