London "LC" Cass Carter, Jr.February 11, 1942 ~ October 15, 2017 (age 75)
London Cass Carter Jr (better known as L.C., THE MAN, THE LEGEND)
Was born in his family home in Evergreen, NC on February 11, 1942. He graduated High School in El Cerrito, California.
For 17 years LC "Rebel" worked in the construction industry for Ironworkers Union 377, later becoming superintendent. He laid iron from the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco to the great telescope at the McDonald Observatory in Texas – there are too many projects to list.
LC returned home to fulfill his childhood dream to take over the family farm. He took it to greater heights– from farming 100 acres of tobacco to producing 6000 hogs a quarter. Known as one of the hardest workers in Columbus County, and for helping to raise many young people in the community.
Through farming he taught kids common sense, hard work, blood sweat and tears, giving them heart and drive to become true professionals. He was always there to lend a helping hand and could fix anything and make anything run.
Final rites will be held 11:00 am Saturday, October 21, 2017 at Worthington Funeral Home with Reverend Warren Hill officiating. Interment will follow in Chadbourn Memorial Cemetery.
The family will receive friends 6-8:00 p.m. Friday at Worthington Funeral Home.
He was the son of the late Edna Juanita Thompson Carter and London Cass Carter, Sr. and was preceded in death by his previous wife, Miriam Martinez Carter.
