Larry Eugene Carter, age 78, of Spartanburg, SC, formerly of Oakland, IL, passed away on Monday, March 2, 2020.
Larry was the son of William H. Carter Sr. and Winifred Hills, born on November 24, 1941 in Coles County, IL. He was married to Mary Ann Scott from 1959 to 1976, and they had four children together. He later married Shirley Anne Dart on April 2, 1984, and they shared thirty-six years together. She survives.
