“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” ~ II Timothy 4:7
Albert Jacob Carter was born to the late Willie R. Carter and Kate Flippen Carter on May 25, 1942, in Cumberland County, Virginia. He transitioned from this life at home on October 4, 2023.
He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings, Betty J. Copeland, Robert Louis, and Harrison Carter. At an early age, he accepted Christ and joined the Midway Baptist Church where he remained a faithful member until his passing. He served diligently as an Honorary Trustee and a meticulous landscaper. Albert was a dedicated and hard worker who was always willing to give a helping hand wherever it was needed. His contagious smile and sense of humor was sure to leave a lasting impression. Throughout his life, Albert worked several jobs. Early in his career, he worked as a transporter for Martin Chevrolet and a logger for different logging companies. While working, he completed training at the Richmond Technical Center. After more than 20 years of dedicated service, he retired from the Town of Farmville, where he was well-known for operating the zero-turn mower cutting each lawn to absolute perfection.
On December 15, 1979, he was joined in holy matrimony to Ruby Trent. He leaves to cherish his many memories: his loving and supportive wife, Ruby T. Carter; children, Gerry (Leila) and Stan (Jennifer); three brothers, Osborne Carter, Sr., Terry Carter (devoted friend, Velma), and Jerry Carter (devoted friend, Elaine); two sisters-in-law, Gertrude E. Trent and Sarah T. Coleman; two brothers-in-law, Sidney (Eleanor) and Robert Trent; six grandchildren, Devonda, DeNetra, Tristan, Jasmine, Renita, and Jalesa; thirteen great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; two goddaughters, Latrese Lee and Kanisha Nash-Davis; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
