Carter, Micheal Burton 11/08/1954 - 02/02/2007
Micheal Burton Carter, 52, of Waldoboro, died peacefully at home on Feb. 2, following a long illness.
He was born Nov. 8, 1954, in Damariscotta, a son of the late Burton E. and Esther F. (Harvey) Carter.
He attended Waldoboro schools and was a graduate of Vinalhaven High School in 1974.
In his younger years he worked as a lobsterman and boat builder. For many years he worked for Keene Narrows Lobster in Bremen. Micheal retired after several years as a bus driver for S.A.D. # 40 in 2001 due to illness.
He loved being in the outdoors, especially on the water, gardening, and spending time at his home away from home on Swanâ€™s Island. He loved going to lawn sales, traveling and looked forward to trips to Santaâ€™s Village in New Hampshire with his grandkids. He loved to cook and was well known for his yeast rolls.
Micheal was known as a person with a big heart. When a person was down he could always make them smile with a little friendly teasing.
He was fun loving and outgoing. Micheal had many life long friendships. He would give you the shirt off his back, and will be remembered as a devoted father and loving grandfather. He loved being around people, spending time with family and helping anyone in need.
All who knew him will miss him, and his favorite saying, â€œfifty cents.â€
In addition to his parents, Micheal was predeceased by a brother, Paul Carter, in 2001.
