Keiffer Gage Carter
1991 ~ 2015
Keiffer Gage Carter of Cottonwood Heights, Utah, passed away on Thursday, December 3, 2015 in a tragic car accident. He was 24.
Keiffer is survived by his mother, Julie Ann Carter; his grandmother, Janeil K. Benson; his uncle and aunt, Jay and Carrie Carter; and his cousins, Ceanne and Austin. He will also be missed by his dogs, Polly, Snickers, and Alana.
He was preceded in death by his great-grandparents, Orvel and Evelyn Eppling, and his grandfather, John H. Carter.
Born on August 25, 1991 in Salt Lake City, Utah, Keiffer was known among family and friends for his creativity, his contagious smile, and his ready willingness to help others. Many from his neighborhood remember fondly the roaming barefoot boy with a baseball cap who would come over to "supervise" the building of their homes. They also remember with gratitude that as Keiffer grew up, he would show up on winter mornings with a snow shovel, eager to clear the walks and driveways of those who lived nearby. Keiffer was optimistic, observant, sociable, and a natural-born storyteller. He loved eating with chopsticks.
Keiffer attended the Academy for Math, Engineering & Science (AMES) and graduated in 2010. He was currently a student at Salt Lake Community College. In 2008 he attended Chinese summer camp at BYU, which influenced his love for Chinese culture. He was an avid reader and also enjoyed music, video games, photography, and cooking. He loved to draw and write short stories. Since he was a baby, he especially loved spending time with his family and beloved dogs at their cabin in Aspen Acres near Kamas. Keiffer's best friend and companion was his grandmother, Janeil; he was known for his tenderness and affection for her.
Keiffer was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and participated in the High Point Young Single Adults Ward. He enjoyed his time working at the Waterford School, as a docent at Hogle Zoo, and at the Living Planet Aquarium. Keiffer loved animals.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00am, Wednesday, December 9, 2015 at the Union Second Ward church located at 1535 East Creek Road (7830 South), Cottonwood Heights. A viewing will be held Tuesday evening from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at the church, and Wednesday morning 9:45am - 10:45am at the church prior to services. Interment at Mountain View Memorial Estates.
