Thomas Watson Carter
LANGLEY - Thomas Watson Carter passed away Saturday, December 9, 2017. He was born April 17, 1927, in Langley, South Carolina, son of the late Florence and Thomas Carter.
He was married for 65 years to the late Vivian Strieby Carter and father to the late Thomas Carter, Jr.
He is survived by son, John and wife, Emily, and granddaughters Riley and Ryann Carter. He was the favorite uncle to many and dear friend to even more.
He was an Army Ranger during the Korean War. He was a Clemson graduate and spent his career in the field of Textiles, part of which was spent with United Merchants and Manufacturers and the remaining as a consultant through his own company, Tomahawk.
He will be remembered for his generosity, love for sports, and as the "king of the one liners." His absence will leave a space in our world as he could always fill a room with his stories and personality.
Tom will be laid to rest beside his wife and son in Levels, West Virginia, at a small, graveside ceremony on Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 1:00 PM. An informal gathering will be held on December 28 at 4-6 pm at Fitzpatrick's Pub & Restaurant in Greenville, South Carolina.
