Anderson Edward Carter, Sr. son of the late Harry A. Carter and Helen E. Quarrels - Carter “McMillan” was born on June 13, 1943, in Washington, DC. Anderson has been blessed in so many ways that he had an angel riding on his shoulders long time. On January 27, 2022, Anderson gained his wings. He is doing other new adventures and seeing some old friends he has undoubtedly missed. Anderson was preceded in death by his son Anderson Edward Carter (Jr.) and his sister Rita O. Carter - Bragg. He attended school in the District of Columbia. He became active in many community settings. His level of education covered a lot of ground. He received a B.A. in Criminal Justice and a Master of Science in Criminal Justice, including “History Buff.” Anderson went on to join the Military at an early age. He started in the NAVY, serving six years, and later worked with the General Services Administration (GSA). He joined the DC. Department of Corrections, from which he retired after serving 32 years. During his time with the Department of Corrections, he served under D.C. National Guard and retired from the Army Reserves. He found the love of his life, Janice L. Clark, and married in 1967; from that union, two children were born, Anderson Edward Carter (Jr.) and Andrell E. Carter. Anderson was the big brother and mentor, always ready to assist family and friends. Anderson loved music, in particular, to dance. Anderson was usually the first on the dance floor and the last to leave, splitting many many pants in the process sometimes. Anderson had a zest for life and adventure. He loved playing chess, pool, drawing, traveling, watching movies, martial arts, riding his motorcycles. You name it, and he probably did it, including riding a camel. Anderson was always a hard worker. He was a member of the Kiwanis in Landover, Maryland. In addition, he was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), a Prince Hall Freemasonry, and a member of East Coast Busas Motor Cycle Club; in which they referred to him as “Ol Skool.” He was very proud to be a member of Prince Hall Freemasonry, just as his father and other family members. Anderson leaves to cherish his memories, his; wife Janice Carter; Daughter; Andrell Carter; Brother; Steven L. Carter; Aunts, Uncles, Sisters-in-law and Brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews, and friends.
