Carter Everett Wilson
28 October, 2000 – 9 January, 2021
Carter Everett Wilson, age 20, passed away suddenly on January 9, 2021. The beloved son of Mary (Seat) and Paul Wilson and older brother to Drew and Louise.
Born on October 28th, 2000, Carter was raised in Nashville, Tennessee. He graduated St. Paul Christian Academy and Brentwood Academy, and was a participant in JV hockey and varsity football. He was a sophomore at Auburn University and member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity.
As Carter aged in his young life, he developed a passionate sense of adventure and a true admiration to see the world. He traveled with Moondance Adventures to the Big Wild Montana, Northern Lights Alaska, and Iceland. In addition, Carter visited Belize, Mexico, England, Scotland and Greece with family and friends. His most treasured memories were summers fishing and golfing in Pawley’s Island, S.C. and snow skiing with his family and friends. He was venturesome and always willing to try something new.
Aside from his enthusiasm for travel, Carter will forever be remembered for his contagious love and affection he gave for all who shared the pleasure of knowing him. He would look to visit home as frequently as possible during his time at Auburn. Despite the lengthy trip, he remained unfazed with the contagious smile on his face when he walked in the door back home in Nashville. Carter’s presence was truly appreciated by all around him. Though he never sought the spotlight, Carter always had a witty and clever sense of humor that had the ability to captivate all who listened with his amazing stories. Carter’s company was a divine light to all around him, and his presence in the world was a gift to all.
Most importantly, Carter loved his family more than anything else in the world. Throughout his whole life he expressed unconditional love for his parents and his two siblings. The unbreakable bond they shared was special, and all the memories they made and the adventures they had together will always be remembered. Carter treasured his family over everything, and his beautiful soul will never be forgotten. Carter is preceded in death by his grandfathers Gary L. Wilson, James G. Seat, and Roger H. Willoughby. In addition to his parents and siblings, Carter is survived by grandmothers Mary Beth Piper Wilson of Murfreesboro, TN, Martha Brown Willoughby of Vero Beach, FL, aunts and uncles, Julie and Adam Wilson (Nashville, TN), Allison Wilson Ventura (Nashville, TN), Jennifer Shigei and Jay Seat (Laguna Hills, CA), and Elizabeth and Ed Moser (San Antonio, TX). Other surviving family members include cousins Piper Taylor, Beatrice Ventura, Emma Moser, William Moser, Darrin Seat, Reese Seat, Stacy and Daniel Piper, Sara Shipp, and Ashley Pratt. Carter will also be missed by many friends who consider him family and his loyal and loving German Shepard Cash.

Paul and family,
I can only imagine the loss you are feeling. Even though I have never met Carter, you always spoke highly of him, Drew, and Louise. May God give you and the family peace during such a difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

To Carter's family and friends:
You have all been in my prayers, and that will continue. I am so sorry for the agony and heartbreak that all of you are going through at this time. When my mother died, I didn't get a chance to say goodbye. That was painful. Instead, I wrote her a letter "telling her" all the things I wish I could have said before she passed. I also mentioned some of my favorite memories with her. Writing the letter was very therapeutic, and I still refer to it from time to time when I am missing her more than usual. I hope you can find some peace during this difficult time, and I pray that God will bless you all.
