Evan Dale Carter Sr. was born on May 11, 1961, in Jefferson County, Kentucky. He was the son of the late Franklin D. Carter and is survived by his mother Kathy Carter Siebe. He was the father of Evan Dale Carter Jr. (Crystal), Kevin Scott Carter, Justin Tyler Carter and Jacob Horvitz. He was the brother of Shirley Harrington (David), Michael Carter (May), Janice Carter Levitch Humphrey (Steven) and Earl Franklin Carter (Miriam). He was a grandfather to Katie A. Carter, Evan D. Carter III, Ethan S. Carter, Eli Taylor Carter II, Jesse J. Carter, Bentley C. Carter, Karmyne Rayne Traxler and Jayden Jose Carter. Evan was also an uncle to many nieces and nephews who loved and adored him. 

Evan passed away in the comfort of his home on November 20, 2020, with the loving presence of his Mother by his side. Evan was a retired Machinist and spent most of his career working with his brothers at the Carter family business A.C. Tool & Machine Company in Louisville, Kentucky, that his Father founded and bequeathed to his children at the time of his passing. 

Evan was a cool and unusual soul and will be remembered by many that were touched by his unique persona. Especially his other family, his family of motorcyclists: known as his biker buddies. This family rides on two wheels and shares a common love of the highways, by-ways, pit stops and sunsets. Riding with them was one of his greatest pleasures. Evan will be deeply missed by family members and friends that will cherish his memory and giving spirit.
