Read more about the life story of Mark and share your memory.
Mark Allen Carter of New Hampton, NH, passed away in his home on February 24th, 2023, at 54 years old. He was surrounded by his wife and his children. He was born in Franklin, NH, on 9/15/1968
Mark was a good man. A generous man. A truly loved man. He grew up as a Navy kid and traveled the country with his family. His grandfather taught him to fix cars and Mark learned how to fix pretty much anything. He loved his grandmother’s cooking and was so very close with both of them. He cherished those memories. You would always hear how his love of motorcycles and cars stemmed from the memories with his grandfather teaching him to love what he did. He moved several times and met his wife Julie Carter when they were just teenagers in Connecticut. He asked her to dance and she said yes.
Moments passed and life moved on. She went on to have two beautiful children of her own and he went on to have 3 beautiful children of his own. Mark never forgot their time together.
He taught his kids to fish and the value of hard work. Anyone that knew Mark knew how much he valued work and was dedicated to providing for his family. He loved his motorcycles and his coffee. Oh boy did he love coffee. He would light up the room for his friends and family and also play pranks on all of them; never leaving anyone out.
He would go on to work at Freudenberg in Bristol, where he dedicated many years while watching his children grow. He played softball and loved being outside. Every time he had a chance he was watching the patriots on tv and celebrating his love of football. He made kielbasa and it was one of the best things you would ever have tasted. He had fires in his backyard and celebrated bike week every single year without fail.
One day he decided Freudenberg was no longer for him and he needed a change. He completely swapped careers and became a truck driver for Prime. His love of the road led him to see every part of the country; he traveled all the states and one day he ran back into his high school sweetheart Julie. They went on to dance their life together; their families blended into one big family and they decided to get married on June 21st of bike week in 2014. They shared laughter, tears and all of the things they enjoyed including World of Warcraft-they both loved to play together.
He was able to watch his daughters and son grow; He was there to support and cherish all of them. He shared his love of cars, jokes and laughter with everyone he came in contact with.
He then started working for Walmart, a company which he loved driving for and allowed him to be home with his family far more often. In September of 2022 he got his wish he thought he would never receive, he welcomed his first grandchild into this world. He absolutely adored him. From feedings to naps he made that little boy know he was so loved.
Mark danced through his life as a strong man, a loving man. A truly good man. From his first dance with his high school sweetheart to his last dance through life he showed anyone and everyone that to be a good person you didn’t have to try, you just needed to love. He will be sorely missed by everyone that ever got the chance to know him. He may be gone, but he will never be forgotten.
Mark was predeceased by his maternal grandfather Freeman Patten and his maternal grandmother Villa Patten.
Mark is survived by his wife Julie Carter of New Hampton, NH. His daughters Jessica Prescott and her husband Nathan Prescott of Puyallup WA; Morgan Jean Carter of Canaan, NH; Paige Sayles of Atlanta, GA; and Kaitlyn Timon of New Hampton, NH. His son Robert Timon of Portland, ME. His only grandchild, Madix Allen Jaxcel Dane Carter-Clemmerson of Canaan, NH. His mother Betty Carter. His Father David Carter. His 3 sisters: Lori Carter of Missouri; Jennifer Carter of Connecticut; Rebecca Renner of Washington; aunts, uncles, cousins, and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of life will be held for Mark on June 17th, 2023 to honor his love of bike week. The time will be decided at a later date.
