Titus Sherude Carter was born on April 13, 1959, to the parents of Charles and Lorraine Carter, in Jacksonville, Florida. He entered into eternal rest on Sunday, July 14, 2013.
Titus was raised in Williston, South Carolina and graduated from Williston Elko High School Class of 1977. In South Carolina, he accepted Christ as his personal Savior while attending Union Baptist Church. Titus was brought up in the church and knew that he wanted to do more personally for God; that is when he truly began to study the Lord’s work to become a deacon and eventually a Preacher of the Gospel.
At the age of 18, Titus joined the United States Marine Corps. He served, honored and protected his country for 9 years. Titus had the opportunity to appreciate the blessing of traveling around the world in the Marine Corps. Titus retired with the rank of Sergeant and received his Honorable Discharge after his tour of duty.
On July 4, 1992, he was united in Holy Matrimony to Annita Lorraine Smith. With this union, they were blessed with three loving daughters, Stephanie, Danielle and Brittany. From the moment Titus joined hands in marriage with his wife and when his kids were born, Titus dedicated the rest of his life being a devoted husband and father.
Titus was a resident of Riverside, California, for 17 years. He worked at Vitran Logistics as an Operations Manager for 7 years. Prior to his employment there, he worked for Geiling Transportation for several years.
Titus was the type of person who put his family and friends first. He was a man of perfection to the best of his ability. Titus also enjoyed golfing, watching NASCAR races, watching all types of sports, listening to music (especially jazz), discussing politics, reading books and scriptures, and staying current with the local news.
Titus leaves to cherish his memories, his loving wife, Annita Carter; three daughters, Stephanie, Danielle and Brittany; a beautiful mother, Lorraine Carter; one sister whom he adored tremendously, Cathy Petignat; two brothers whom he could always count on, Timothy Carter and Darryl Carter; his mother-in-law who was always there, Annie Smith; and a host of cousins, other relatives and friends who will miss him dearly.
