Nelson Carter Obituary

Nelson Alton Carter, 58, of Kinston, passed away on Saturday, December 23, 2023 at UNC Lenoir Health Care. He was preceded in death by his father, Nelson Alton Carter; mother, Irene Blanche Herring; and aunt, Maxine Smith.

Nelson is survived by his sister, Ann Carter Scott, of Virginia; nephew, Thomas Westbrook; nieces, Candice Sutton and Jessica Westbrook; four great nephews; four great nieces; several aunts and uncles of Lenoir County, along with other close family members and friends.

Nelson worked at Neuse Enterprises for over 30 years and knew practically everyone in Kinston. He loved spending time with his family and friends. He especially enjoyed going to church and singing praises to his Heavenly Father. He enjoyed participating in special Monday Night Bible Study sessions with friends from various churches. Nelson’s love for Jesus and his glorious voice were a blessing to all who knew him. Our lives were better because of him and he will be greatly missed.

For the last three years, he resided at Howells Enrichment Center. On that Saturday morning, Nelson informed his staff that he was going to sleep; as soon as his eyes closed, he was welcomed in Glory. As he had sung so many times before, he didn’t cross Jordan alone, Jesus was there waiting for him.

A memorial service will be held to honor Nelson at Howard-Carter Funeral Home on Monday, January 29, 2024 beginning at 2:00 p.m.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
