Gregory “Gregg” Allen Carter was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 15, 1947. He was the first of six children to Ernest and Eva Pearl Carter.

Gregg met Elizabeth in 1979 and after a brief courtship they were married in 1980. He was a Bridge Enthusiast and later became a HAM Radio Operator.  He had a love for cooking and was known for creating the best ribs ever.  He built computers in his spare time, often giving them to his grandchildren for school. He was a Star Wars fanatic and was first in line at every movie premiere.  Gregg was funny and brought laughter to his family at every event.  He loved helping people in times of need.  He was always very proud of his family.  When his health started declining, he never complained. He always pressed on and lived life on his own terms.
