Charles Columbus Carter, Sr., 80, of 810 Walters St., went to his heavenly home on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at his home surrounded by his loving family.
Mr. Carter, known as “Monk” to his CB radio friends, was born August 11, 1940, in Reidsville, NC. He was a truck driver for Watkins and Burton Motor Lines until a motorcycle accident disabled his legs. A handyman at heart, he could just listen and know how to fix anything you put in front of him.

He was a Christian who believed that “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
