The Kent Island Bay Times - - Bay Views -

KENT IS­LAND — Charles Wayne Carter, a hus­band of 66 years to Joan Bev­erly Carter and fa­ther to Craig Wayne Carter, served in the Ma­rine Corps and then as a Mont­gomery County po­lice of­fi­cer for 26 years. Charles re­tired from the county po­lice in 1981 as a sergeant.

In re­tire­ment, he op­er­ated a con­ve­nience store and served as a bailiff in a Mont­gomery County court. Charles, who lived on Kent Is­land for more than 20 years, had two grand­sons: Denny and Corey Carter; and three great-grand­chil­dren: Xavier and Eleanor Gangi­nis Carter, and Lilly Green.

Charles was born to Aubrey and Chris­tine Carter on Dec. 30, 1927. He was raised by Aubrey and his step­mother, Agnes, in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., un­til he en­tered the Marines, when he was sta­tioned for three years in China.

Charles, in his later years, was a mem­ber of Galilee Lutheran Church. He was an avid grass mow­ing en­thu­si­ast, a vo­ra­cious reader of U.S. his­tor y books, a long­time fan of the Wash­ing­ton Red­skins and Bal­ti­more Ori­oles, and a ded­i­cated eater of hard shell crabs. He had a no-non­sense ex­te­rior and a lov­ing, car­ing in­te­rior he re­vealed in pri­vate mo­ments. Charles will be missed by fam­ily and friends who knew him as a loyal, ded­i­cated friend, hus­band, fa­ther, and grandpa.

Ser­vices will be held on Wednesday, April 4, 2 p.m. at Galilee Lutheran Church in Ch­ester, MD.
