Don Richard Carter was born in Gonzales, Louisiana on July 13, 1943 to the late Thurman and Annie Louise Krebs Carter. He proudly served our country in the United States Air Force, and retired as a Supervisor from Columbian Chemicals. Don was a longtime member of Highland Baptist Church, and always put God first in everything he did. He loved the Lord with all of his heart, and the love for his family was immense and unconditional. He loved hunting and fishing, and would take off to Toledo Bend every chance he got. He loved his wife, Connie above all else, and cherished every moment he spent with her. He will be deeply missed.
