Memorial services for Virgil Dean Carter, 67, of Sperry, were held Monday, August 24, 2015 at Skiatook Freewill Baptist Church in Skiatook, OK. Reverend Mitchell Leonard and Reverend John Seaton officiated. Honorary casket bearers were Jeff Ray Carter, Timothy Dean Carter, Larry Dean Carter, Maxwell Moore, Jeff Carter, Melvin Blue, Billy Carter, Rex Carter, Allen Carter, Rickey Carter, Jim Seaton and Tom Seaton.
Virgil was born May 15, 1948 in Tulsa, OK to William Edward and Rose May (Dick) Carter. He passed away August 19, 2015 in Sperry, OK.
As Virgil would say, he was a “Jack of all trades, Master of none”. Virgil was a heavy equipment operator, mechanic, framer, plumber, and an electrician. As long as it didn’t involve a computer, he probably did it.
He is survived by his wife, Sherry Carter; children, Larry Dean Carter of Tulsa; Jeff Ray Carter and wife Tonya of Hot Springs Village, Julie Yvonne Carter-Pearson and husband Darrel of Sperry, Jeffrey Wayne Carter and wife Mindy of Broken Arrow, and Timothy Dean Carter and wife Heather of Sperry; 14 grandchildren; 4 great-grandchildren; sister, Linda Lynn; brothers, Billy Carter, Allen Carter, Rickey Carter, and Rex Carter; and many other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his sister, Nelda Carolyn Carter; brother, Timothy Dale Carter; father, William Edward Carter; and mother, Rose May Carter.
