Jeffrey Donald Carter, 61, passed away Friday, July 16th 2021
following a stroke he had while playing in The Northern Utah Amatuear
Golf Tournament. Jeff is the son of Donald and Elizabeth Carter. He
was born in Charleston, Illinois on March 18th, 1960. Jeff spent most
of his life in Scottsdale/Phoenix after he married the love of his
life and wife of almost 34 years, Jenny, and there they raised their
two children, Jessica and Jacob.

He was an avid golfer, entrepreneur, financial advisor, investor, and
commonly known by his loved ones as a craftsman of all trades whether
it was on the golf course, or helping his wife out around the house,
Jeff was certain that every job he did was executed to its purest
form. Jeff was an ardent ice cream lover, gardener, Cubs, Bears and
Bulls fan, and some would say a "clean freak". Above all he was a very
proud father of his two children.

Jeff lived a life filled with gratitude, an unwavering moral compass,
amazing accomplishment, and dedication that was apparent to all who
knew him. He was his family's north star, their guiding light, and his
giant presence will continue to carry them through life. His sense of
humor, booming laugh, and big smile were known by all whose lives he
touched. Jeff was always focused on evolution, having perfected the
ability to reinvent himself, he was constantly changing for the
better, waking up each day a better man than the day before. He will
be greatly missed and will be remembered fondly by friends and family
as a smart, strong, thoughtful, persistent, and caring man. Jeff's
passing is a stark reminder to all that life is a precious gift, not
to be taken for granted, and to be lived to the fullest with a smile
and grateful heart.

He is survived by his wife Jenny Hamilton Carter, children Jessica
Rose Carter and Jacob Stewart Carter, his mother Elizabeth Carter and
siblings Ellen Foster and Mark Carter, as well as nieces, nephews and
extended family. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that
donations be made to Crossroads Inc., of Arizona
