Philip D. Carter

Irving, Texas — Philip D. Carter, 56, of Grapevine, Texas, passed away April 8, 2014, at Los Colinas, Texas.   He was born November 13, 1957, in Henryetta, Oklahoma, the son of Richard and Erma Carter.

Often referred to as “Quickdraw” or “Quick” for short, for his athletic ability, Phil attended both Seminole Junior College and East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma, on baseball scholarships. He graduated from ECU with a master’s degree in education.

Phil’s joy in life was doing things with and for his three children. Phil knew everyone in the neighborhood and everyone knew him, and it wasn’t uncommon to see Phil with all the neighborhood kids tubing behind his Sea Doo.

He was the kind of guy who would step up and take care of things that needed to be done for friends or family, without being asked and without expecting anything in return. Phil was an avid golfer and enjoyed spending time on the lake. He loved to cook and entertain.

He held the title of Vice President of Ram Jack of Texas, where he worked for 27 years.

Cherishing his memory are his wife, Janine Carter of Grapevine; his children, Ryan Carter of Irving, Austin Carter and Savannah Carter, both of Grapevine; his parents, Richard and Erma Carter of Dewar, Oklahoma; brothers, Carroll Carter, Eric Carter and sister Alice McGowen, all of Dewar; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, the Ram Jack family and many dear friends.  

Funeral services will be held Saturday, April 12, 2014, 2 p.m. at Christ Church Irving, 1750 E Airport Fwy, Irving, TX 75062, with Pastor Keith Luttrell officiating.  Interment will follow at the Grapevine Historic Cemetery.  

Memorial donations may be made to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, 2222 Welborn Street, Dallas, Texas, 75219, Attn: Development Department.  Arrangements are under the direction of J.E. Foust & Son Funeral Home, 523 S. Main Street, Grapevine, Texas.
