King-Tears Mortuary, Inc. Obituary

Ed (Buddy) Carter was born October 31, 1933 in Austin, Texas to the late Charlotte Rose Alexander and Edwin Carter, Jr. in Austin, Texas. He attended the Blackshear School and was a smart student. He later married Fay Jackson in 1964 and was a faithful worker in Austin, Texas. They became the parents of six children. Pastor Carter had a troubled young marriage for several years. He was married, but lived as if he was not. One night he got incarcerated in the County Jail, where he had a miraculous experience with the Lord Jesus - - this changed his life forever. He was born again in the County Jail in December, 1971. After being released, he went to New Testament Church and learned what he had done. He had repented and received a new life. He was passionate about Jesus and placed great value on his new life in Jesus. He could be seen in East Austin witnessing, passing out tracts at stores, street corners, jails and nursing homes. He pastored a small community church in East Austin, Christian Full Gospel Church for 15 years. He was a strict disciplinarian with his children, but did an about face with the grandchildren. He had a stroke in May of 2000 and asked his wife and daughter to respect his dignity and "don't let anyone in my room." His wife obeyed his wishes. She surrounded him with his six children and 19 grandchildren and 2 great grands. Pastor Carter was a strong and proud man who was passionate about God and his family and never wanted to do anything to bring dishonor to Jesus and the kingdom. He believed we should live a life that glorifies God, and be people of character and integrity, and lift up Jesus in the earth. Pastor Carter entered his eternal rest on May 11, 2009. He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Fay Carter; six children, Sharon Plummer (Clyde), Pamela Carter, Tracy Monroe, Jacquelyn Carter, Jeremiah Carter, John Mark Carter (Regan); Nineteen grandchildren; two great grandchildren; one brother, Freddie Carter of Los Angeles; and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
