Coach was a wonderful man who deeply loved his beloved Mary. He was an extraordinarily talented coach who enabled his players to play their best.
He was a devout man who delighted in his family and hie trips with Mary to Branson. Missouri.
I respected him and really enjoyed my lessons with him. Like so many others, I will always remember him with joy and admiration.
Hugs and Kisses to Mary and the rest of his family.

Jimmy was the number one tennis player at Wichita State University and Missouri Valley Conference winner in 1958. He was a close friend and I enjoyed his acquaintance and will miss him greatly.

Coach Carter epitomized all that was good in coaching and tennis. He was a man of great integrity and I am a better person for having known him. I am saddened beyond words. The world lost a great man and coach.

I had the great honor of playing tennis for Coach Carter in the mid 1970's.
I'm now 60 years old, but when playing my USTA matches I can still hear his words of wisdom.
This special man made me a better tennis player, but more importantly, a better person.
Thank you Coach Carter for being such a positive influence on my life. I will never forget you!
