Tony B. Carter, 87, of Mechanicsburg, passed away Friday, June 7, 2019 in Hearth and Home, Urbana.
He was born June 27, 1931 in Greenup, Kentucky, the son of the late Covey and Emily Frances (Young) Carter. Tony was a builder by trade. He began his career, first with Clemens Brother's Construction, then with Earl Love Builders and finally owning his own construction company, Tony Carter General Contractor.
He was a devoted Christian, who in the past was a member of the Oak Grove CCCU, Woodstock Free Will Baptist Church, Kennard Church of the Nazarene and most recently, attended the Urbana CCCU.
Tony was a devoted husband and loved spending time with his family. As our hearts ache for the physical loss of him, we find solace knowing that he is now with God. He is at peace. And for that, we are grateful.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Frances (Blevins) Carter; sisters, Rosabelle, Virgie, Gertie, Nancy, Stella Mae, and Martha; and brothers, Walter, Millard, Willie, and Jay.
