- Ronald E. Carter, 78, of Etna, passed unexpectedly on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018, at his home. He was born in Bangor, on March 15, 1939.
Ronald attended Hermon High School. Upon graduation, Ronald began a career in the wood cutting industry, where his reputation of cutting wood was unparalleled and his skill with a cable skidder was like no other. Ronald also plowed roads for the town of Etna and took great pride in doing so. Even in the midst of blizzard, his plow route was sure to have some of the cleanest roads. In his later years, he was kept in the best of company by his loyal dog and companion, JoJo, who never left his side. During his retirement, he loved to frequent Etna Village Variety where he held very special regards to his 'girls' who always took great care of him and ensured he left with a smile on his face.
He was predeceased by his wife, Carrie Anne Carter; his parents, his son, Ronald C. Carter, a set of infant twin siblings, Dana and Darlene, and a grandson, Jeremy Butterfield.
Ronald is survived by a son, Paul and wife, Melissa, of Etna, daughter-in-law, Catherine of Jackson, daughter, Wendy Butterfield and husband, Mike, of Newburgh, and daughter, Sheila and husband, Vincent, of Texas. Ronald was the grandfather to eight, and great-grandfather to four. He is also survived by his brother, Clair Carter and his wife, Ann, of Etna; three sisters, Patricia Pearl of Palmyra, Linda Guidi and her husband, Mike, of Gorham, JoAnn Henderson and her husband, Charles, of Etna. He was looked after in his later years by many special friends.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date and burial will take place at Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Etna this spring.
