Carlton was born Aug. 8, 1923 in Blytheville, Arkansas, to Tommy and Mamie James. In 1942, Carlton joined the United States Marine Corps. After serving his country for four years he returned home to Arkansas where he met the love of his life, Bernice James. Carlton relocated his family to the Central Valley in 1961, where he began his life's work as a mechanic on agricultural equipment.
