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.

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!
