He was born in Indianapolis on December 10, 2003 to Charles Frederick Gorth IV and Amber N. (Butcher) Gorth-Sullivan. Carter was a freshman at New Palestine High School. He loved hunting, girls, fishing, girls, camping, girls, horseback riding, and girls. He loved his majestic hair, insisting it only be cut by professionals He was a beautiful young man that cared deeply about people and animals. He loved without hesitation and never carried judgement or grudges. He was the apple of his parents’ eyes. He didn’t care for sports much, even though he ran like lightening and could throw the perfect spiral. He was proud, patient, attentive, and protective in his cherished role as a big brother to a brother and sister just as he was in his role as a younger brother to his two older sisters. He was fearless yet cautious, he was intelligent, funny, and the world is a brighter place because of him. He will be missed but never forgotten and will remain a miracle forever.
