Schuyler  Carter

Obituary of Schuyler Kevin Carter

IRMO—Schuyler Kevin Carter, 32, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family in prayer on Thursday, August 25, at Lexington Medical Center.  

 

Born in Columbia and raised in Bluffton, SC, Schuyler graduated from Bluffton High School and attended the University of South Carolina’s Beaufort Campus. When only a few courses shy of graduating with a degree in hospitality management, he was diagnosed with Melanoma that eventually took his life at such an early age. Schuyler was a dedicated Christian, devoted father to his son Conway, and a huge Gamecock fan. He was, and remains, the light of his mom’s (Mandy Mills) life. His siblings adore him as do all who had the privilege to have crossed his path. 

 

Schuyler worked in F&B most of his life where he met and made many friends including his beloved Bekah Johnson. More recently, he attained his realtor’s license and worked with Metro Realty Group. Schuyler loved the Lord, his family and friends, and his Monte Carlo.  

 

Schuyler taught us all that our time on this earth should absolutely be spent laughing! 

 

Schuyler leaves behind his beloved Bekah Johnson of Chapin; his son, Conway Schuyler Carter and Conway’s mother, Laura-Jane Faulkner of Bluffton; mother, Mandy Mills of Irmo; father and step-mother, Kevin and Hope Carter of Pomaria; Step-father, Douglas Delaney of Bluffton; brothers, Reynolds (Amy) Carter, Sean Delaney, Paul Carter, and Daniel Carter; sisters, Breck Delaney, Marlow Delaney, and Fallon Delaney; paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Carter; paternal step-grandparents, Marvin and Marilyn Miller; maternal step-grandmother, Bonnie Hammond; and nieces and nephews, Hunter, Skylar, and Madison. 

 

He was predeceased by a paternal grandfather, Paul C. Carter; maternal grandfather, Wayne H. Hammond; maternal step-grandfather, Larry Fowler and maternal grandmother, Harriette Fowler.
