John W. Carter, 88, passed away on August 6 at the Hospice House in Poland, Ohio. He was born October 7, 1932 the son of Pearl (Houlettte) Garrod Carter and Wilfred Carter in New Waterford, Ohio. He was a 1952 graduate of Fairfield High School. He grew up working on the Carter farm, after leaving the farm, he first worked on a Local railroad, then as a field service engineer at the NRM corporation in Columbiana, OH; his own business at Carter’s Mobil Service, Canfield, OH; as a field service engineer at Miller Printing out of Pittsburgh, PA; and Gaylord printing in Detroit, MI; Manager at Signature Villas Apartments in Ann Arbor, MI; and finally with his wife, Betty, operated the Landmark on Madison Bed and Breakfast in Lebanon, IL.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his two sisters Dorothy Whitaker and Mary Flowers; his three maternal brothers Henry, Wilber and George (Judd) Garrod and two maternal sisters Louise Webber and Edith Ward; his paternal brother Willis Carter and five paternal sisters Marie DeLashmutt, Erma Rinkleib, Gertrude Jacks, Lois Carter, and Esther Reed.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 69 years, Betty Jane Noling Carter, whom he married on June 22, 1952, two sons Roben (Bonnie) Carter of East Liverpool, OH and Dennis Carter of Berlin Center, OH; Five grandchildren; John G.(Melissa) Carter of East Liverpool, Oh., Roben L.(Marlene) Carter II of Salem, Oh., Christina M.

Carter of Austintown, Oh. 12 great grandchildren; Brooklyn, Olivia, Emily, Zack, Issac, Timothy, Isabel, Matthew, Destiny, Haily, Chase, and Bobby and 3 great great children; Jackson, Luke, and Myles.
John was Methodist by faith and was active in the Churches where he lived. He especially liked to sing. He sang in the Church Choirs, in quartets, and sang solos in Church, at weddings and funerals. He was an active volunteer in city activities while living in Lebanon, IL. He was not one to sit around and stayed busy his whole life working second jobs, working around the house, and wood working. He did most of the work building his own family house in Columbiana Ohio and spent three years with his wife repairing and remodeling the house that was to become the Bed and Breakfast. It seemed to his sons that he could do almost anything or fix anything.

John was easy going, never lost his temper, and spent his life devoted to his wife. If she was happy, he was happy. She returned the devotion by endlessly caring for him when he could no longer care for himself.
Services will be held at the Martin Chapel of the Care Funeral & Cremation Specialists in Calcutta, OH on Thursday, August 12, 2021 at 5:00 PM with his son, Roben, officiating. Friends may call on Thursday afternoon from 3:00 pm until time of services at 5:00 pm.

    The family of Dave and Peggy Garrod, John’s nephew offer our deep felt condolences to the Carter family. My fondest memory of John is his carpentry skills which he exhibited while helping to build the cabin in Canada with family members. He had no fear of heights and volunteered for the job of roofing the cabin. He managed to wrap his legs around rafters and work with two hands on nailing roof decking. A true carpenter.

    I met John when he first moved to Lebanon. He and Betty bought the Home in Madison and immediately started preparing it for their B&B. John often stopped by my office which was stone’s throw from his home to talk about what he was doing. I always enjoyed his visits. Like his obit said he was always doing something. The project of making his home a B&B wasn’t easy and I know he had a live hate relationship with the task over the several years he worked it. He and Betty were so proud when they were ready to open and whether people told them or not I know the town was proud of their dream of a B&B. They were good people and I know Betty will miss John especially after 69 years together. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Betty and other family members as you remember John as the wonderful man he was. May God bless his family and bring them comfort diluting this time.
