James "Mickey" Michael Carter passed away in Clearwater, FL on June 2, 2020. Mickey was born in Nashville, TN on January 20, 1942. Mickey's death was preceded by the death of his wife of 50 years Jacqueline "Jackie" Woodall Carter who passed only a few weeks previous on May 4, 2020. A forever devoted husband and father, Mickey was just beginning his battle with pancreatic cancer found only after Jackie's passing. Mickey is survived by his two sons, Scott Carter and Thad Carter; daughter-in-aw Jennifer Carter; and his grandchildren, Blake Michael Carter and Caylin Joy Carter. Mickey was a graduate of University of Florida's College of Pharmacy and practiced retail Pharmacy until 1972 at which time he moved into management with his Eckerd's career culminating as a Vice President of Loss Prevention. After retiring Mickey worked for BuzzeoPDMA as a consultant and enjoyed his time traveling, fishing and spending time with his wife and family. Many will remember his calm demeanor and quick wit, he was well known for always having a smile. His boys will remember his inexhaustible patience, his kindness and trust, and taking too many photos of the fish that he always seemed to catch more of. Due to Covid, a Celebration of Life will be scheduled for both Mickey and Jackie in the future for friends and family to attend. Please contact MickeyJackie2020@gmail.com if you wish to be added to the list for invitation.

We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Mickey. Just saw him the end of February at the ECU annual meeting. Enjoyed working with him at Eckerd and the many years of playing golf in the Eckerd Golf League.
