Donald Wayne Carter, 74 of Wells walked into eternity on November 4, 2021. He was born
February 28, 1947 in Jacksonville, TX. He attended Kilgore college for one year before enlisting in the Army.
He served in the Americal division and received two purple hearts for his service in the Vietnam War. He shared 45 years
with his wife, Peaches Carter, and home with her was his favorite place to be. He could grow
anything and ran a successful hay farm even this year. He was a husband, a father, a brother, a
grandfather, a soon to be great grandfather and friend. He was one of the last true cowboys and
possessed a kind humility that rarely exists. He loved watching video services from home, read
his Bible faithfully and served God in his kind and gentle way with his family. He had sage
wisdom and preached living your faith and patriotism to those who knew him.
He was preceded in death by his mother Laverne Grogan and fathers, Wilson Grogan and R.D
Carter, his brother Michael Carter, an infant son and his son Danny Carter.
He is survived by his wife Peaches Carter, son Dustin Carter, daughter Renelle Carter, daughter
and son-in-law Clint and Christen Creel, daughter and son-in-law Bradley and Tristen Henson,
brother and sister in law Tommy and Terri Grogan and a sister and brother in law Ronnie and
