He was born in Selma, Alabama on March 5, 1952 to the late Herbert E. Carter, Sr. and Jeane Davidson Carter.
He was a millwright by trade for GE, a farmer, and avid wild game hunter.

He and his brother, Jim, spent a lot of time hunting together. They loved to hunt whitetail, doves, ducks, and many other things. In his younger years he farmed soy beans and later was a cow farmer. He always said, “GE paid the bills and the cows paid for the hunting trips.”
