Keith Carter

d. August 24, 2022

Keith D Carter born November 12, 1932 in Limon, CO to William Ralph and Myrtle Carter, resident of Redlands, CA and later Espanola, NM passed away on August 24, 2022 at his home in La Mesilla.  Outgoing, caring and generous he enjoyed his retirement from Los Alamos National Laboratory working as a greeter at Walmart in Espanola.  Always ready with a smile, a joke or just friendly banter he loved to brighten people’s days. As a Father and Grandfather, Keith endowed us with a true sense of what it means to be human. Never hiding nor disregarding emotions he taught us that it was okay to laugh, to cry, to feel joy, embrace pain, and above all, show humility. He is survived by his children David & Gretchen Carter of San Angelo, TX. Brian and Sherry Clark of Albuquerque, Belinda Tafoya of Espanola, Nolan and Anita Carter of Los Alamos, & Monica Carter of Espanola, and thirteen grand children and one great grand child.

Funeral services will be held at the National Cemetery in Santa Fe on Monday, September, 19, 2022 at 1:30 p.m.

The family of Keith Carter has entrusted their loved one to the DeVargas Funeral Home and Crematory Services of Espanola, NM.
