Cartter died Dec. 1, 2022, in Flintstone, Ga.

He came to us from Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tenn., where he wrote for The Baylor Notes, acted in school plays, played on the soccer team, and was a military captain and class salutatorian. At Princeton, he majored in history, was varsity soccer manager and a Chapel deacon, and ate at Tower Club.

Following graduation, he worked in the investment department of Volunteer State Life Insurance Co. While there he married Lee Weigel in 1965, and they had three daughters, Ashlee ’90, Bethany, and Avery. Cartter and his twin brother, Bryan, founded the Patten & Patten investment firm. After 43 years the partnership was dissolved, and Cartter joined with his daughter Ashlee to start the Patten Group, an investment advisory firm.

Beyond work, he enjoyed travel, hunting, fishing, and hosting events at his home, Ashland Farm in Georgia. His philanthropic interests centered on the environment and education.

He is survived by his wife, Lee; and daughters Ashlee, Bethany, Avery, and their families. The class extends sympathy to all.
