He is survived by his devoted and loving wife of 62 years Edna; daughter Debbie Sapp (Ron); sons William Peanut Carter Jr. and Mike Carter; granddaughter Saralyn Grass (Gabe). He was preceded in death by his parents Elsie and Norman Rock, as well as his first born son, Gary Carter. Willie drove stock cars back in the 50's and 60's and won many races at Jax Speedway and other tracks. Known for his fearlessness, he was known far and wide as Wild Willie Carter.

The family would like to add a special thanks to his caregivers; Annett, Kat, and Martha, who assisted his wife in giving him the most excellent care over the past several years and to the VITAS Hospice Staff who lovingly cared for the whole family.
