Charles Carter Passes Away

Written by SGN Scoops on December 14, 2011 – 4:29 am -

Charles Carter, father of long-time Pfeifers’ member, Mary Jane Carter, passed away on Sunday, December 11. Mr Charlie, as he was affectionately known, had suffered a stroke in November, and passed away, peacefully at home, surrounded by family and friends.

Charlie and wife, Ethel, enjoyed 70 years of marriage, and even those who never had the privilege of meeting Charlie personally, felt as if they knew him. Almost nightly, during Pfeifer concerts, his daughter, Mary Jane often shared funny stories about Charlie and Ethel’s antics.

Charlie was a great lover of Gospel music, as Mary Jane so often has testified. He sang with numerous groups over the years and was a great supporter of The Pfeifers’ musical ministry.

Charlie is survived by his wife, Ethel (Lewis) Carter; two sons, Phillip and wife, Dawn Carter of Colorado Springs, CO; Charles Jr and wife, Vicki Carter, of Chillicothe, OH; one daughter, Mary Jane Carter of Washington Court House, OH; five grandchildren, 11 great grandchidren, including Zach Lloyd, audio engineer for The Pfeifers; four great, great grandchildren, two step grandsons, four step great grandchildren, four brothers, one sister and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends from 4:00pm to 8:00pm on  Wednesday evening, December 14, at Grace Community Church in Washington Court House. Funeral service will be held 1:00pm on  Thursday, December 15 at Grace Community Church in Washington Court House, OH, with John Pfeifer and Todd Kritzwiser officiating.  Burial will follow in Highlawn Cemetery, with military rites to be performed by the Fayette County Honor Guard.

Cards and notes of encouragement may be sent to Mary Jane Carter and the Carter family in care of The Pfeifers, PO Box 93, Washington Court House, OH 43160.
