Dugless Carter

September 2, 1933 — June 15, 2020

Dugless Carter passed away on Monday, June 15, 2020. He was born September 2, 1933 in Harper, TX to Tom and Sophie Carter where he was raised and was a star athlete. He served in the U.S. Army 2 years at the end of the Korean war. He married Leta Fay Daughtrey and lived in Junction, Texas. They had 3 children, Deborah, Ronald and Clay. They moved to Medina, Texas where Dug was Foreman of the Circle R Guest Ranch. He later built many fences in Bandera County and took pride in his work. \r\n\r\nDug was known for his uncommon physical strength. However, following the stroke on January 6th, having his left foot partially amputated twice, pneumonia and excruciating pain, he faced each with a mental and spiritual strength like few others. He taught his family to face the future bravely, no matter the circumstances.\r\n\r\nHe attended Wild Ride Ministries Church in Harper, Texas many years. \r\n\r\nDug loved his family and friends. He loved horses, horseraces and goats, good food and cooking for others. He believed in cleanliness. He loved fun and laughter, (which may have included a cerveza or two), camping and a good game of pitching washers and horseshoes. He insisted on good, right and fair. Lord help you if you caused trouble. He was very proud of his country, the red, white and blue and made it known. \r\n \r\nDug was preceded in death by his parents, his youngest son, Clay, brothers Orville, Lloyd, Aubrey (Dusty) and Ray and an infant sister, some nieces and nephews, and his late wife, Bobbie Carter.\r\n \r\nHe is survived by his special friend, Janice Haag, 2nd born, Ronnie, daughter, Debbie and husband Jim and grandchildren Kayla and Travis, nieces, nephews and cousins.\r\n \r\nDug and his family are grateful for the Kerrville VA CLC Rehab, Dr. Sammel, his staff, New Century Hospice, Kerrville Medical Equipment, Audie Murphy VA Hospital as well as Dug's bosses, Jeff and Dan and co-workers, especially Karla and Joe, Janice Haag, Michael and Tammy Haag and others for watching over Dug's affairs in his absence. It was a joyful reunion when Dug was allowed to go to his daughter's home from the Kerrville VA on June 5th. The family had not been allowed to see him since March 10th. They are so thankful to our Lord and Savior for arranging that homecoming. \r\n \r\nPallbearers are Bobby and Hunter Salyers, Jack and Cody Tripp, Rocky Hubble and Travis Chastain. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for memorials to the National Kidney Foundation or any Senior Citizen Meals on Wheels or program to assist children in need.\r\n\r\nVisitation at Grimes Funeral Chapels, Bandera, Texas, Friday, June 19, 2020 from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM.\r\n \r\nDug's graveside celebration of life with Military Honors will be Saturday, 11:00 AM, June 20, 2020 at Tres Lomas Ranch. Take Kyle Ranch Road between Bandera and Medina. Follow the red, white and blue. Burial will be next to his youngest son, Clay. A service in Harper is simply too difficult with Father's Day.\r\n \r\nAS MUCH AS THE FAMILY WOULD LIKE TO HUG, HANDSHAKE AND BE CLOSE DURING THIS TIME, THEY MUST INSIST THAT EVERYONE OBIDE BY THE CLC GUIDELINES FOR THE CORONA VIRUS/COVID-19. IF YOU ATTEND THE SERVICE, PLEASE WEAR YOUR MASK AND KEEP THE SIX-FOOT RULE. IF YOU CANNOT WEAR A MASK, PLEASE KEEP A FURTHER DISTANCE. THIS WILL BE DIFFICULT HOWEVER; WE HAVE OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS TO PROTECT.\r\n \r\n \r\n
