Rev. Carter R. Dobbs, 79, moved to his eternal home on May 17, 2020.

Carter was born August 19, 1940, in Cooperative, Kentucky to his parents Rev. Ross and Jewell (Phipps) Dobbs. Although born in Kentucky, Carter lived most of his life in Muncie, Indiana.

Carter married the love of his life, Carolyn (Koger) Dobbs on March 7, 1958 and they celebrated 62 years together. Their marriage was blessed with one son, Carter DeWayne Dobbs.

He had been employed and retired from the Muncie Chevrolet Plant in 1990 after 20 years of service. Carter was also a member of the Whitney Masonic Lodge.

He was a member of the Gospel Travelers singing group for many years and after leaving the group continued to use his singing talent at the home church.

Carter was ordained into the ministry on March 31, 1979.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his son Wayne, also a sister and brother-in-law Vina Jean and Ralph Gregory.

Although Carter will sadly be missed by his family and friends, his days of poor health and sadness are now left behind. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning!

I'm sorry to see that Carter has gone on to Heaven.
I knew his father Ross in his mother at Coop. Ross married my parents Orville Gregory in Flora Winchester Gregory.
Mom told me that her in Daddy was running later for Ross to married them. Daddy had a big horn outside on his car. Daddy began to blow that big horn so Ross would know that were coming.
Now Cater has gone on to see see his son in parents in Heaven.
We are also kin on the Dobbs side.
Rest in Heaven.
