Benjamin Wesley Carter of New Berlin Illinois died unexpectedly January 26, 2024 at his home with his fiancée Kim at his side.

Benjamin was born April 15, 1976 the son of Renea and David LeMar of Mountain Home Arkansas and Donald Carter (Sue Zahnow) of Rochelle Illinois.

Weekends would find him enjoying friends and family and a big campfire at the campground in Shelbyville. He enjoyed boating, fishing and hunting. Winter weekends included competitive Mario Kart with friends. He would always brag about being able to pop a wheelie at the start of every race!
