David Lee Carter, Jr., 69 of Smyrna, DE, passed away on September 5, 2021, at Lorien Harmony Hall following a courageous battle with brain cancer with his daughters at his side. He leaves his wife of 40 years, Lucille (Bonnette) Carter.

David took great pride in his family, embracing the “yours, mine and ours” while still being a very young man. Regardless of his children’s ages, he was there to pick them up and move them forward with advice and encouragement.  He enjoyed the many family gatherings, and will always be remembered for his willingness to help and his infectious laugh.

In addition to his wife Lucille, he is survived by three sons, David L. Carter III and wife Lissette of Oxford, MA; Matthew D Carter of Seattle, WA; and Stephen J. Feige and wife Katherine of Cambridge, MA. He is also survived by three daughters, Carrie A. Stacey and husband Eric of Lugoff, SC; Cherie L.
