Jacob Anthony Carter

Jacob Anthony Carter was born June 13‚ 1992‚ in Amory‚ the youngest son of Jerome and Myra Carter. Jacob‚ being a person who was always eager to help anyone who asked‚ decided to join the Becker-Athens Volunteer Fire and Rescue in his community. He always loved doing this for his fellow members of the community. On April 17‚ 2011‚ on his way to a fire call‚ there was a tragic accident‚ and Jacob lost his life at the age of 18.

Jacob’s accomplishments in life were being a great son‚ nephew‚ brother‚ uncle‚ and brother-in-law. He loved being with family. When he was with his family he was always smiling and playing with this nieces and nephew.

Jacob was a very loving son. He is missed by his family and friends deeply. Jacob told his mother each and every day how much he loved her. We miss that precious smile that he always had on his face and the big bear hugs he always gave.

Christmas was the most memorable time of the year. You could not hide a present from Jacob. He always found them. He was always the first one under the tree on Christmas morning. He was the first one in line for the turkey and dressing. We all hoped and prayed he left enough for us.

Jacob loved playing with his nieces and nephew‚ pulling them around the yard in the big‚ red wagon‚ and jumping on the trampoline with his nephew‚ Bradley‚ who was his pride and joy. The look on his face the first time he saw that baby boy was priceless. Jacob was such a proud uncle. He always called him his Brad Brad. He always got so excited when Halloween came. He loved carving the pumpkins and taking Bradley trick-or-treating.

Jacob was a huge George Strait fan. Every time one of his songs came on the radio‚ Jacob would sing it word for word.

We love and miss you‚ Jacob.
