Charles Lynn (“Lynn”) Carter was born in Eureka, Utah on June 25, 1936, to Charles Lynn (“Pete”) and Ruth (Twitchell) Carter. He passed away peacefully on August 22, 2018, at his home in Moab, Utah.

Lynn was always quick with a joke and was a quite a prankster in his youth. He served honorably in the U.S. Navy from 1957 to 1961. In addition to other jobs, Lynn worked mostly as a heavy equipment operator in copper and uranium mining and, later, for the Federal Aviation Administration, from which he eventually retired. Over the years he worked in numerous western states. Lynn married Shirley Pipkin on November 15, 1966. They were happily married for 51 years. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, and loved to golf. He was a great dancer and a good bowler.

Lynn was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Bruce Carter, his daughter Wendy Carter Daniels, and his granddaughter Stephanie Carter.

He is survived by his wife, Shirley; his siblings LaGrand (Barbara), Sherry, LaDean, Craig (Denice), and Karen Carter; his children Bill (Beth) Carter, Jodie Peltz (Steve Smith), Randall Carter, Starla Johnson and Mitchell Carter; his grandchildren Katie Corcione, Kerri (Brandon) Kirk, Samantha Carter, and Eric (Amelia) Peltz; great-grandchildren Sierra Corcione, Kobi Corcione, Phoenix Kirk, Avie Hansen, Ashton Peltz, and numerous nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, September 1, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. at the Monticello cemetery.

He will be greatly missed.


Dear Shirley,
I saw Lynn's obituary in last weeks SJR. Just want you to know that our prayers and thoughts are with you at this sad time. I'm glad that we got to know Lynn at our last reunion in 2017. I was very impressed with Lynn's fine personality and sincerity. He seemed to genuinely love and appreciate you. I know that you will miss him terribly and it will take a long time getting used to him being gone. May the Lord bless and comfort you. Sincerely, Ed and Ann Barton

Lynn will be missed at the golf course, I know that Bill will miss his golf buddy.

Shirley & family - Bill and I send our love and sympathy to you. Bill had golfed with him the day before and said that he could tell that he didn't feel well. He will certainly be missed and especially at the golf course.
- Bill & Inalyn Meador

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
