Don W. Carter

Don W. Carter, 69, a former resident of Corsicana and graduate of Corsicana High School, Navarro College, and University of Texas School of Architecture, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013 in Houston.

He is survived by his wife, Louise Nicholson Carter; daughter Heather Carter Gitterle; son Dustin Nicholson; grandchildren Aidan and Gabel Gitterle, and Ella and Thomas Nicholson; daughter-in-law Brandi, son-in-law Marc; three sisters, Vivian Elle Green and her husband Darwin, Frankie June Bressie, and Margie Hill, and her husband Bill, as well as Don’s 1974 Triumph TR-6.

Born Jan. 4, 1944 in Corsicana, Don was preceded in death by his parents, Vivian and Frank Carter and his brother, Ed.

Don was an award-winning healthcare architect known for his uncompromising approach to excellence, consummate respect for the people with whom he worked, as well as his devotion to mentoring design professionals to the highest standards.

He pursued all his interests with energy, passion and meticulous attention to detail, in a way that inspired others to greater excellence. He was a dedicated member of the Harris County Senior Softball League. Don’s lifelong passion for classic automobiles and autocross racing led to his most cherished friendships, memories and experiences. The Texas Triumph Register car club members were like his extended family. Don was deeply loved by all. We are far better for having had him in our lives. His legacy will continue, as we endeavor to honor him in years to come.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013 at St. Luke United Methodist Church, 2308 Bowie Dr., Corsicana. A Houston memorial service took place on Oct. 18, 2013 at Chapelwood United Methodist Church, and he is interred in Wimberley, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Don Carter Memorial Fund for charitable/educational scholarships, c/o Skyline Art Services, 6955 Portwest Drive, Houston TX 77024.
