CARTER, William Nelson, 99, of Ruther Glen, died Monday, July 19, 2021, at the home of his daughter. Mr. Carter was a lifelong member of Zion Christian, where he had served as deacon and elder.

Carter and Martha Samuel (Warren); three grandchildren, Rachel Bennett, Delaney Carter and Alex Samuel; as well as five great-grandchildren. Nelson was the ultimate "fix anything person" and could always create something out of nothing. He loved his God and his family and enjoyed helping whatever needs there were in his community.
