Grandpa, loved puttering around the house and making grandma crazy.  He was known by most as “Grandpa Carter” whether or not you were family. 

Earl and Shirley served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at the Lindon Cannery. Earl and Shirley were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple.
