He was a standout football star at Hazard High School. He had lots and lots of friends and if he were your friend you had it made. He would give anyone the shirt off his back. Everyone will remember his infectious smile that was so big that it would light up any room no matter how big or small. He has a special cousin that's known as his Gemini twin Ebony S. Carter. He has a host of aunts, uncles and cousins. God knows he will always be loved and will be endlessly missed.
