Mike Steve Carter, 54, passed away on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2019 at St. Patrick Hospital, from complications due to brain cancer.
He was born on July 3, 1964 in Dexter, Missouri to James and Judy Carter. Mike’s family moved soon after to Hamilton, Montana. Mike was raised in the Bitterroot Valley where he took up boxing while in high school, winning several competitions.
Later, Mike married Shelly Coalpits and had a daughter named Vanessa. They later divorced.

Mike worked for over 20 years with Norco Products building furniture for America’s schools and offices.

To the family of Mike Steve Carter. When anxieties overwhelmed me, you [Jehovah] comforted and soothed me.”​—Ps. 94:19. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I am deeply sorry for your loss. I'm reaching out with some encouragement as I too have lost many loved ones in death. One thing that has helped me to cope many times is a promise made by in the Bible at Acts 24:15. Here it says that we can have a “hope toward God” for He promises that “there is going to be a resurrection.” What a comfort to have “a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago.” (Titus 1:2)

The prophet Isaiah also spoke of future world conditions under God’s Kingdom rule that are very exciting. At Isaiah 33:24, it says that “no resident will say: ‘I am sick.’” I lost my own grandmother to cancer and this scripture has been close to my heart always. I hope these verses comfort you as they have comforted me. My heart and prayers go out to you.

Below is a link to a very encouraging Bible-based brochure entitled, When Someone You Love Dies. Please use your personal Bible with this brochure as you read it in the months ahead.

Deepest Sympathies,
