"We are so sorry for your loss, Mike was a very sweet and loving person. Our thoughts and..." Michael & Carol Sherwood
Richard O. Carter, of Manchester Center VT, died

peacefully at his home on December 21, 2014, after a truly extraordinary battle with cancer at the age of 68.

Richard grew up in Wethersfield, CT, the son of Richard O. Carter Sr. and Beulah Davis Carter. He graduated from Wethersfield High School. After serving his country in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam era, Richard returned to Wethersfield and began his career in the publishing industry, eventually moving to Fairfield Ct to work at the prestigious Glen Denning Agency. Recruited by MBI Marketing, it was with Richard's editorial and design expertise as Creative Director that the renown 'Worlds 100 Greatest Books' was published by Easton Press. Additionally, Richard meticulously documented the refurbishment of the Statue of Liberty. His countless hours of effort culminated in a beautifully bound chronicle of this historic event. It was from MBI that Richard retired and moved to Eastham on Cape Cod. The Cape remained a very special place for Richard and he returned and spent many happy times there at his family's home until his death. A highly accomplished photographer, painter, author and gardener, Richard moved to Manchester Center VT in 2004 and embraced his role in helping run the Seth Warner Inn. During this time, after becoming ill, Richard chose to continue his work and artistic pursuits and added to them the skills of carpentry, wood turning and barn building, all while undergoing treatment. He was a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Manchester, serving in roles from Chaplin to President. When asked of which of his numerous accomplishments he was most proud, Richard cited an ability to adapt and reinvent himself, despite what challenges life offered. Richard's great charm, quick wit and tremendous sense of humor will be missed by all who were lucky enough to have known him. Richard was predeceased by his parents and sister, Virginia. He leaves his devoted wife and owner of the Seth Warner Inn, Stasia Tetreault, sisters Lorraine J. Carter of Wethersfield, CT, Terry I Carter of Glastonbury CT, and nephew Ian Richard Carter-Sullivan, also of Glastonbury, and his much loved dogs Ryder and Watson. Heartfelt appreciation is extended for the excellent care provided Richard by Manchester Health Services. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of the Mahar and Son Funeral Home 385 Bonnet St in Manchester, VT 05255
