Scott was born in Nashville, TN to Kenneth and Sue Carter on January 10, 1980. He attended Williamson County Schools and was a graduate of Centennial High School. Scott was a loyal employee of Rock City Machine Company for 21 years where he was loved and respected for the special person that he was. He was always the first person to arrive and would do whatever job he was asked to do with a smile. Scott was a faithful member of the Christ United Methodist Church. It was his custom to treat the Sunday school classes to doughnuts, volunteer to help in whatever capacity that was needed, and be an example to other young men and boys. Scott also loved to play softball for the church co-ed and men’s teams. He was a dedicated volunteer for the Williamson/Maury Counties Habitat for Humanity for many years. Scott was usually the first person on site and the last person to leave. He started helping as a construction volunteer and worked up to being a crew leader. He took great pride in his work and teaching construction skills to volunteers while building homes for others. Scott was an avid fan of the Nashville Predators. When he went to a game, he always wore his Predators jersey and hat. He would yell and cheer for his team whether they were winning or losing. Scott spent many hours working on puzzles, model cars, planes, and trucks. One of his joys was to spend time playing with Claire, Mason, and Avery. Above all, Scott loved serving others. Love grew everywhere that Scott went.

Scott is preceded in death by his grandparents: Ira and Addie Carter, Odell and Ellen Whitehead.

Scott is survived by his brother Russell Carter (Karen), parents: Sue Whitehead Carter and Kenneth Carter, nieces: Claire and Avery Carter, nephew: Mason Carter, aunt: Sylvia Dross, uncles: Dudley Carter, Robert “Bob” Carter, and Karl Whitehead, and several cousins and friends.

Pallbearers will be relatives and friends.

I was one of Scott's teachers during his middle school years. Scott was a continual pleasure and joy to be around. He had the quality of always thinking of others, always trying to please others, that stood out as exceptional in the middle school setting. He had a loving, giving nature that radiating from him at all times. No matter what, he always seemed happy and his happiness was contagious, he spread it like sunshine everywhere he went. I still cannot think of him without smiling. Full credit to his parents for raising such a considerate and joyful person.

Scott and I worked together for over 20 years. He started out as a helper but soon became my partner. More times than I can count I was struggling with what to do next on the jobs where everything was going wrong and he always had an idea. He had a way of seeing the big picture like the pieces to the puzzles he always like to do. I never wanted anybody else out there in the field with me. And I’m always gonna miss him. My homie. RIP buddy.

Dear Sue and Russ,

I'm a friend of Sylvia's. She has kept me in the loop of Scott and Russ as they have grown into Wonderful Young Men. She is such a proud Aunt.

I am looking toward the day we will be with Scott again, in all his splendor at that Great Reunion JESUS has made possible. That has kept me going these last 7 months, after loosing a nephew tragically.

For those that love the LORD, the Best is yet to come.❤️

Scott was the kindness soul I've ever met. I remember when Mike DeWeese and I was tearing down the racks one year at the clothes give a way. It would have taken us a very long time out of nowhere came Scott and he helped us with all of it. Never complained just jumped in and I can say he saved our tails that day. I'll never forget Scott. I had some good conversations at church with him. I'll miss him. RIP My friend, you deserve it.
