Scott Carter, 50, of Fayetteville, Ga., formerly of Alcoa-Maryville, passed away Sunday, June 9, 2013, following a riptide current drowning on Wednesday, June 5, 2013.
He was a graduate of Alcoa High School in 1981 and will be remembered in the area of sports. While growing up, he was a faithful member of Monte Vista Baptist Church of Maryville and was very involved with the youth group.
He was employed by CVS as a store manager. Though he was a Georgia resident, he was a Tennessean at heart and an avid Vols sports enthusiast, which he shared with everyone, especially his dad. He was a family man, a true Christian, and was loved by everyone. He attended Southside Church in Peachtree City, Ga., with his family.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, John and Margaret Douglas, and Earnest and Cassie Carter, all of Alcoa.
He is survived by his wife, Melissa; daughters, Whitney and Landry; parents, E.J. and Brenda Carter; sisters, Melinda Owen (Rod), Fayetteville, and Tamara Fischer (Jimmy), Senoia, Ga.; parents-in-law, Robert and Faye McCartt, Harriman; as well as extended family, friends and coworkers who will miss him greatly.
A funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 15, in Mowell Funeral Home, Fayetteville, with the Rev. Barry Thompson and the Rev. Chris Patton officiating. The family will receive friends from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 14.
