Vernon Twp., NJ: John R. Carter, 54 years old, died unexpectedly at home on Sunday, December 29, 2019. Born to James and Gloria Carter in Amityville, NY, he lived in North Bellmore, NY before moving to Vernon Twp., NJ a year ago.
John was a self employed arborist and took great joy in what the outdoors offered including hunting, salt water fishing and riding his motorcycle.

John is the beloved husband for 2 years of Kathleen Carter(nee Ryan) of Vernon Twp., NJ. Father of Jonathan Carter of Maine, Robert Carter of Maine, Nicholas Carter of Glen Spey, NY and Jack Carter at home. Grandfather of Haylee. Brother of James R. Carter of South Carolina and Gurni Lee of PA. Cherished by his 10 dogs.
