Teddy Allen Carter

Teddy Allen Carter

November 14, 1982 ~ June 3, 2017

Teddy Allen Carter, 34, passed away on Saturday, June 3.

Teddy was a loving son, a good brother and a fun uncle.

He was born in Temple, Texas on November 14, 1982, and was  a graduate of Burnet High School, Class of 2001. 

He spent the last several years living in Austin.

He was a part of the community that most people don’t want to see, but are driving by and walking around everyday like they are invisible.

Teddy spent his time trying to bring a face to the homeless people in Austin by being his own delightfully funny self, always making people smile.

We may not have understood him and his ideas all of the time, but we will all miss his crazy laugh and bright smile.

Jesus knew when to take him home and now he’s home forever in our hearts and in Heaven with our Lord, met by all those who went before him.
