Jasper "Clinton" Carter, known as Clinton or Clint, was born March 18, 1929, and went to be with The Lord July 14, 2013. As a veteran of the Korean War, Clinton served his country in the U.S. Army.
As a small business owner, Clinton provided for his family and displayed a great work ethic. After God and family, Clinton's love was music. As a 38-year member of Pleasant View Baptist, he sang in the choir and accompanied them on the guitar. Music attainments include induction into the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame in 2002; six years in the "Reach of Song" play at the Hiawassee Mountain Fair; and musical competitions all over the United States. Clinton was a wonderful, caring man who was loved by everyone.
