Richard B. "Dick" Carter

Richard Carter of Auburn, Calif. passed away at home with his family at his side.
Richard was born in Seattle, Washington to Bart and Mary Carter. Most of his childhood was spent following his father and mother or living with his Grandmother in Port Town- send, Wash. while his father worked as an engineer building the Bonneville Dam and later in California on the Golden Gate Bridge project. The family settled in Livermore, California where Richard completed his high school education. Richard enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in Europe during WWII. After returning from the war, he met and married Evelyn Nunn in Livermore. He remained married and devoted to his "bride" for nearly 70 years.
Richard worked for many years for Kaiser Engineers and other heavy construction companies before settling in Auburn, Calif. There he began a long career as a systems engineer for Placer County Water Agency, until his retirement in 1989.
Richard was an avid golfer and a member of the Cornerstone Church, where he will be remembered as a "door greeter" on Sundays. A proud lifelong member of the California Free Masons (Masonic Lodge), he was humble, kind, loving and generous. Richard enjoyed his fellowship with his church and showed his love of God and family. He will be truly missed.
He is survived by his wife, Evelyn; sons Greg Carter and wife Susie of Florence, Mont. and Scott Carter and wife Judy of Loomis, Calif.; grandchildren Kasey Carter of Seattle and Kyle Cater of San Diego; and great granddaughter Nayella George of Seattle, Wash.
Memorial service to be announced at a later time.
