John C. Carter, 81, of Stillwater, died on September 23, 2017 at Maria Hall in Danville.

Born in Mt. Carmel, he was the son of the late Mae and George Carter.

After graduating from Bloomsburg High School, he proudly served his country in the U. S. Navy for 11 1/2 years, including on a minesweeper, on a cruiser, at several homeland duty stations, and lastly with the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon.  He saw the world and twice became a member of the Royal Blue Nose.  John would want all of us to honor our servicemen and women, respect our flag, and support our country.

After 32 years in the book printing industry, he retired from Bloomsburg Haddon Craftsmen to enjoy his hobbies of music, art, fishing, gardening, building model airplanes for children, and cheering for the Redskins and the Phillies.

He is survived by his loving wife, Kay, Abby (his companion paws), two brothers:  David and Burton; two sisters-in-law:  Beverly (Sam O'Brien) and Gwen (Gordon Schuit); nephews and nieces: David, Karen, Katie, Brian, Burt, and Ingrid, and very special friends:  Nancy, Tim, Hannah, Holly, Timothy, Larry, Bob, Henry, Ken and Janet.

At the request of the deceased, there will be no visitation or service.  Private interment will be at the convenience of the family with military honors.
