William Calvin Carter
May 07, 1947 – Nov. 28, 2021
On November 28, 2021, William “Bill” Carter, Jr., loving husband, father, brother and friend passed away peacefully in Chesterfield, Virginia. Bill is survived by his loving wife Yong of 47 years, their sons Hasani and Brian, Grandchildren Trinity and Christian, his siblings Diane and Wayne, Brother-in-law Jose Negron, Daughter-in-law Shanida, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by his mother Lillian Wright and brother Fred Carter.
Bill was known as a generous, light-hearted and compassionate soul. He loved spending time with his family and friends and helping others. His commitment to service was evidenced in his decision to serve his country by working within the U.S. Army for over 47 years. He is a proud graduate of Trenton Central High School and St. Leo University. As many will attest, Bill was always someone who you could call upon for help or guidance.
He will be greatly missed by his loving family and friends and will always be remembered in our hearts. We are sincerely grateful to the many friends who have given us support and comfort during this time of loss.

My dearest Uncle Bill,
You will be sorely missed. You were truly a leader and protector of our family and went out of your way to take care of everyone around you. You set a high standard for yourself and others which inspired many of my life’s decisions to try more, do more and work harder. Your acts of kindness were unprompted and meaningful. You always did the right things at the right times. Many times unbeknownst to others. I will never forget the last day we shared together. Seeing you revel in joy as you reminisced on your pentagon career will live forever in my heart. Your smile, your light, will love forever in my heart.
Love your niece,
Tyonna (Tee Tee)
