Jarrod Wayne Carter, of Pymatuning Twp., age 35, entered into the presence of his Lord and Savior on Tuesday June 11, 2019 following a 6 year battle with brain cancer.

He was surrounded by his loving family and friends at home. His devotion to his family and his firm belief in God supported him in his struggle and ultimately gave him peace. Jarrod was born September 7, 1983 in Greenville, PA a son of Diane (McClelland) and Richard Carter.

Jarrod was a 2002 graduate of Mercer High School where he was voted the most talkative. During high school he was in a band with his friends called Armed Battery. He was known for his ease in frequent conversation with even total strangers. He possessed a contagious smile and an entertaining sense of humor. Throughout his life he maintained a sweet and simple demeanor that won the trust and hearts of many, who even now are being changed by his witness of constant nurturing of love and faith. His signature gift of joy, shown through his constant smiling, laughter, and joking around, will never be forgotten. Jarrod worked at Joy Cone Company for 8 years and then went on to work at Greenville Metals until he was diagnosed.

He met his wife, Andrea Carter, when they worked together at Joy Cone. They married on March 9, 2007 and had two children Chloe (10) and Jacob (7). Jarrod was a dedicated and loving father. He helped coach his daughter's softball team since she was 3 and helped coach his sons wrestling team. He also stayed actively involved in their schools PTO and had various volunteer roles. Throughout his entire life, he held an unwavering faith in God, which he shared with his children. Jarrod was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Greenville. He was a talented craftsman/handyman which he learned from his stepdad Ben Dawson. He enjoyed shooting guns, photography, 5K races, and had a love for trees.

He will be sadly missed by his family, his wife, Andrea, his daughter, Chloe Carter, and his son, Jacob Carter. Loved ones left to cherish his memory is his mother, Diane Dawson, his stepfather, Ben Dawson, his dad, Rich Carter (Bobbi), his mother in-law Janet Gardner (Bill) and his father in-law Johnnie Cook (Mary), his brothers Jeremy (Katie) Carter, Rikki Carter, Jason Dawson, his sisters Alex Dawson, Lisa Dawson, Harmony Dawson, Renee O'Rourke (Bill), Shirley Harris, and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
