Michael Louis Carter

January 20, 1948 — June 11, 2020

Michael Louis Carter, age 72, of Talihina, Oklahoma, passed away on Thursday, June 11, 2020.

He was born on January 20, 1948 in Houston, Texas, the son of Michael “Monk” Louis Carter, III and Hazel Florence Hoglan Carter. He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Johnny Dale Carter; and two sisters, Barbara Jean Carter Laas and Junita “Juanita” Marie Carter.

Mike was truly a professional truck driver. During the 90’s, he deliberately wrecked his truck in order to avoid hitting a van which was full of people. These actions saved those lives but left him with severe back injuries. He enjoyed playing dominoes, watching football and drinking Dr. Pepper. Mike was a Baptist in his faith.

He is survived by his son, Frankie J. Carter; his niece, Gloria Jean Martin; his uncle, Freddie Roy Hoglan; his aunt, Ina Ruth Sulzer Hoglan; and lots of cousins.
