John David Carter, III 59, of Sanford, died unexpectedly at his home on September 20, 2020.

He was born in Sanford on October 31, 1960, the son of John David and Carolyn V. (Evans) Carter, II.

John attended elementary school in Florida and Alfred. He graduated from Massabesic High School, Class of 1978. Following high school, he enlisted into the U. S. Navy and following an injury and unable to fulfill his service obligation, he received a medical discharge.

Shortly after being discharged, John took an adventurous trip to California where he worked various jobs including being a bartender on the Naval Base. After 17 years of being away from his family, John yearned to be back home in Sanford and gained employment with a cable company and was a dedicated worker for many years.

John was a proud member of the Sons of the American Legion and he loved riding his Harley and spending time with his family and friends.

He is survived by his father John David Carter II and his wife Sharon of Auburndale, Florida; his brother Garry Junkins and wife Nancy of Sanford; sister Terry (Junkins) Gray and husband Carl of Alfred; brother Ronald (Gator) Junkins and wife Teresa of Alfred; and Anna (Carter) Desrochers of Sanford.

Also, his lifelong, best friend Chris Yates. Chris was by his side through the good times and bad; he is the embodiment of what a best friend is, and we will not forget Gloria. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we love you. And many nieces and nephews: Amy, Stephen, Eric, Jessica, Jared, Chris, Candace, and Jeremy; and great nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his mother and stepfather, Carolyn and Donald Tutor, grandparents, aunts, and uncles, also by his good friend Eric Howes.

RIP Brother. . . We Love You. . .
