He was a 1977 graduate of Greencastle High School. Mike was employed with Pools of Fun for 15 years, and he recently began his dream of owning and operating Tailgaters BBQ.

Mike lived his life to the fullest, loved late model racing, fishing, duck hunting and shooting trap. He always had a good time and never met a stranger. He enjoyed hanging out with friends at the Cataract Yacht Club, and was an active member of the Spencer Moose lodge. He also enjoyed cooking and spending time with family and friends.

He is survived by his wife, Sally Jo (Dowell) Carter; son, Greg Fulk (Chrissy); daughters, Kimberly Stutler (Josh), Jamie Pursell (Marc) and Nikki Nunnally (Benjamin); father, Michael E. Carter Sr.; stepmother, Louise Carter; stepfather, Cecial Dallas Johnston; brothers; Rick Johnston (Jeanna), Bruce Johnston (Tammy), Brian Johnston (Lynda) and Matthew Carter (Jessica); sisters; Rita Day (David) and Judy Hampton (Kenny); grandchildren, Gerald “Brad” Fulk, Devin Fulk, Josie Stutler, Spencer Stutler, Jason Pressler, Parker Nunnaly, Jase Stutler, Vanessa Pressler and Josiah Stutler.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Marvelle Watson-Johnston and a brother, Toney Johnston.

The world is a much smaller place without this man beloved by so many. Thoughts and prayers for the family and friends are greatly appreciated.

A celebration of life ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 29 at the Spencer Moose Lodge.

Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Southern Indiana Cremation Society.
