Jack Carter was born on November 16, 1934 in Liverpool, England. Some things that Jack enjoyed doing in his free time were fishing, reading, hunting or really anything that had to do with the outdoors. He was a true outdoorsman. Jack was also a gun collector and was even a Captain in the Shelby County Sheriff Reserves. Most of all, Jack would do anything for anyone and was always there when you needed him. Jack was a culinary artist and enjoyed cooking and eating. Jack will truly be missed for his quick wit and dry sense of humor.
