Richard L. Carter – April 17, 2018

Dick was born November 27, 1926, in Beaver Co., OK, and born again at the age of 21, in the spring of 1947.  He passed away, Tuesday, April 17, at the age of 91.

Dick attended PAMC (now PSU) in Goodwell, OK, on the G.I. Bill as a veteran of the USMC in WWII.  He met Mary Ruthe Neufeld in college.  She attended on the bill of her parents.

Dick and Mary Ruthe were married for 71 years.  Their union resulted in daughter Becky and her husband, David Haigler, of Dallas, and son Dan and his wife, Denise of Amarillo, 5 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.

Dick was a wonderful husband, an excellent Dad and grandpa and a faithful friend.  He loved God, his wife and family, and the church.  He was faithful, generous, humble and good-humored, even on his last day on earth.  He left big footprints.

    Sorry to hear about your dad. I read the obituary in the paper and it sounded just like you talking. Love you all.

    Dick Carter was a pleasure to work with. I knew him through Amarillo Public Library for over 30 years. I was secretary to the Director of Library Services and worked with him on various committees. He was always so sweet and courteous to the employees there. He was greatly respected and appreciated.
