Mr. Carter was my Math and Computer Science teacher at NTCI as well as the coach of our varsity badminton team. I owe my introduction to both engineering and athletics to him. He was a great person to learn from, and incredibly funny at times. My first trip to NYC was organized by him as our Computer Science team was chosen to compete that year in all an North American programming contest. Thank you, Mr. Carter. I will miss you dearly.

I am very saddened to hear of John Carter's passing. He was my Computer Science teacher at North Toronto Collegiate Institute. I have fond memories of hanging out in the Computer Science room with my friends getting the first exposure to e-mails, working on the school phone directory and his Pascal text book. He was kind and funny and a great teacher. He will be missed. My deepest condolences to his family.

I was very saddened to hear about the passing of John. He was my department head at North Toronto CI, and he was my role model when I left to become a department head. He was funny, intelligent, warm. We also shared a CUSO experience in West Africa,different countries and different decades, but this was somethingelse we had in common and it certainly changed my life. My condolences to the Carter family.

John and I have been part of the Engineering Strategies and Practice course for many years. He was one of the most dedicated and caring instructors I know. Everything he did in the tutorial was based on what was best for students' learning. He was warm friendly when a nervous first year student needed a little reassurance that they should be there, but also firm but fair when a student needed to be guided back to the right path. He will be sorely missed by his student and all of us who had the pleasure of learning how to be better teachers from his example. - Jason Bazylak

I remember when I started teaching the Introductory Programming course, APS105. John had written the course textbook, and he generously provided me with all his teaching materials: everything from past tests, assignments, even his lecture notes.

This morning, ahead of today's party in honour of him, I took out my copy of John's original programming textbook, Problem Solving in Pascal, from 1989. Years back, I asked John to sign it and he kindly and unassumingly wrote:

// Khoman,
// Thank you for honouring me by asking me to sign this
// book and, more importantly, with your friendship.

John was a caring instructor and a good friend and will I miss him dearly.

A few years ago, John and I co-taught the first-year Discrete Mathematics course in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto. He cared deeply about his students. I will miss his positive attitude and great sense of humour.

I am so very sad to hear of John's passing. He and I had a strong working relationship over several years, and his calm, wry sense of humour often kept me grounded amid some frustrations. I will always remember his kindness and friendship.

In fond rememberance,John,

Laryssa and Michael: So sorry to hear the news. I wrote to John on October 4th wondering if he was okay since we hadn't heard from him for a while. I have a nice picture of John and Toby from Feb. 2010 which I will send if you would write to me at [email protected] I can't seem to attach it to this guest book. Bob Stocker
