Carter B. Stewart Jr., aka Buck, fell accidentally on May 5th in McCall. He was life-flighted to Boise with a traumatic brain injury. He died on May 14th. Many thanks to those EMT/medical personnel in McCall and Boise that worked to keep him alive.
Carter was born in Bellevue, NE on October 10th, 1954, to Bobbie O. and Carter B. Stewart. His birth order was between three sisters, Beth, Nancy, (Carter) and Diane. His early years were spent in the flux of a military (Air Force) family, moving from NE to AL to GA to Guam to NY and then to ID. In 1966 his parents retired in Boise, where he attended school and graduated from Borah High School. In 1975 Carter enlisted in the Marine Corp among those in HMH-361, MAG-16. He was a participant in the evacuation efforts in Vietnam and Cambodia.
His military enlistment ended, and Carter returned to enter college at Boise State University, earning a Bachelor of Science in 1984. Carter joined the workforce at Micron in Boise in the layout group. In the 2003 layoff, he sought other types of jobs, among them long-haul trucking and working for the city of McCall. He returned to work for Micron in UT in 2007 in the Yield Enhancement Group until 2012.
At that time, Carter moved to Cascade where he held various jobs. He spent time with many friends golfing, skiing, snowmobiling, riding motorcycles, biking, fishing, and hiking. He was also a certified scuba instructor for many years. Carter was a member of Chapter 13-2 Combat Veteran’s Motorcycle Association, and a member of the VFW Post #60 in Cascade.
