Robert Carter was a friend to all. He was loyal, genuine, and an all around amazing person. He never judged you for anything you could have done. He didn’t hesitate to put a smile on your face and make anywhere feel like home. He was a very simple man with an enormous heart. He loved his family more than anything. Every year he looked forward to going to the Nutcracker with his family, listening to the music, watching the dancers and especially enjoying the company of his family being together. He loved the little things, such as, Sunday lunches with his wife, flying kites, driving his truck, working at USTER, going to Ehrhardt, and most of all, being there for his family. He was the kind of man that didn’t like being taken care of. He wanted everyone to know that he was there for them whether the situation was rough or easy. He would give everything he could to those that needed it. He never lost connection with anyone, he made sure that you knew he was there for you and he was never going to leave your side. Although, he never finished his projects that he swore he was going to, he loved starting them. Anything, no matter the difficulty, he believed he could do on his own. It must have been very hard to accomplish all of the things that he would do. He mastered the art of being two places at once. This man was loved by so many. He was the most amazing father, husband, grandfather, and friend that anyone could have ever known. Although his passing will affect many, he would have loved to see everyone coming together as a family. He will forever remain in our hearts and our thoughts. His kindness will never cease to touch others. This man will truly never be forgotten. His memory lives on to inspire others to be a better version of themselves and always remember the true meaning of life, love, and happiness. (Written by Carter Connolly)
