Thursday, October 26, 2017

PAWTUCKET – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement today:

“I am deeply saddened by the death of my friend, John Carter.”

“John Carter embodies the ideals of service and civic leadership that all of us should aspire to. As an inventor and entrepreneur, he helped create economic opportunity for hundreds of employees both here in Rhode Island and across our country. Alongside his wife, Letitia, he became one of Rhode Island’s most respected philanthropists. He gave generously to so many worthy causes and institutions throughout his life. There are few organizations that have not benefitted from his endless generosity.”

“John’s civic virtue was without parallel. Rhode Island will not be the same without him. My thoughts and prayers are with Letitia and the entire Carter family.”
