CARTER, Phillip Jul 3, 1951 – Feb 7, 2021

Phillip Brent Carter, 69, of Geneva, Florida, passed away Feb. 7, 2021. Phil was born in Sharpsville, Indiana, on July 3, 1951, to W. Dean and Evelyn Carter.
He is survived by his wife, brother, six children and 13 grandchildren.
Phil had a long career as a basketball player and coach. He was an alumnus of Jacksonville University, class of 1974.
He began his coaching career at Episcopal High School in Jacksonville, Florida. He then coached at Daytona Beach Community College from 1976 to 1980, followed by Baptist College in Charleston, South Carolina, from 1980 to 1983, Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, from 1983 to 1985, and University of Central Florida from 1985 to 1989. He finished his collegiate coaching career at Lake Sumter Community College in Leesburg, Florida.
After a long career in coaching, Phil went on to own and work for several auto dealerships. He worked for Sanford Auto Dealers Exchange and Adesa Auto Action.
Sports remained an integral part of Phil’s life. He enjoyed time on the golf course with friends, coaching his children and grandchildrens’ teams or simply watching the game at home with family.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to charity in Phil’s memory. Sports-related charities for children or agencies funding research for the treatment of colon cancer and multiple myeloma would have been close to his heart.
