Michael Alan Carter

January 31, 1955June 10, 2018

Michael A. “Mike” Carter, 63, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 10, 2018, after a courageous fight against cancer. Mike was born on January 31, 1955, in Odessa, Texas, as the second son of Bill and Patricia Carter. His family moved to Conroe in 1968, where he continued to reside most of his adult life. Mike was a graduate of Conroe High School and attended the University of Texas. Mike was known for his strong work ethic, his personal integrity and his deep loyalty to his family and friends. He began his business career while still in high school as the co-owner of the local Charles Chips delivery franchise he operated with his younger brother, Mark. Mike built on those experiences as a salesman to launch his life-long career in the industrial construction field where he achieved many years of success, managing projects both domestic and abroad. Mike enjoyed playing golf, hunting the outdoors and endlessly traveling the Texas highways. He was always up for an adventure as long as he was behind the wheel. Mike recently traveled to the Texas coast to spend time with family and take in the beauty of the Gulf. Mike was soft-spoken but could pull off some of the best practical jokes, particularly those that involved farm animals anonymously left in the backyards of family members. He will be fondly remembered by his friends as “one of the good guys.” Mike’s greatest joys were his children. He is survived by his son and best friend, Cole and his daughters, Rita, Sarah and Rose as well as Luke Martin and Brandi Herrera. His larger family includes grandchildren, loving brothers and sisters, their spouses and children, aunts, cousins and dear friends. Because Mike was a man of faith, we look forward to a sweet reunion with him in heaven. Until then, we know he is smiling and watching over us. A memorial service for Mike will be held on Friday, June 15, 2018, at 12:30pm, Cashner Funeral Home, 801 Teas Road, Conroe, Texas. Visitation will be held on Thursday evening from 5pm until 7pm at Cashner Funeral Home.
