  • Brutally Honest Obituary of Shawn Carter - How Heroin Took His Life

    Obituary of Shawn Carter - Colchester, VT – Shawn Michael Carter, 32, was taken from this life way too early due to an accidental overdose.

    Shawn was born on November 15, 1983, in Burlington, the son of Harry Carter and Anne Marie Paquette. He was predeceased by his mother and both set of grandparents – Norman and Ruth Carter and Richard and Mary Somerville, his uncles Billy Carter and Robin Turner.

    Shawn is survived by the love of his life, his daughter Marlee Carter, her mother, Kelley Breeyear, by his father Harry Carter, and his best friend and brother, Levi Carter and niece Saebryn and devoted friend, James Bushey. In addition, Shawn leaves behind his aunts, Lori Carter Turner, Joanne Paquette, Mary Paquette, Sara Aiken and Lori Somerville and his uncles Chris Carter, Joseph Paquette, Paul Somerville and Chuck Corle and many cousins and friends who loved Shawn dearly.

    Shawn’s joy in life was to bring a smile to the faces of those he loved. He was always up for an adventure or to lend a helping hand to someone in need. He was a hard worker and jack of all trades including restaurant work and a talented self-employed carpenter. He loved to fish, boat and rock climb with his Aunt Lori and Uncle Chuck. He was a son, a father, a brother, a nephew, a cousin and a friend. Shawn was also a drug addict.

    Heroin promised Shawn the world – “I will make you feel accepted and loved and normal – like everyone else. I can make you feel nothing and make you believe that everything will be ok”. What it didn’t tell him is how it would devastate his family and tear them apart, how it would take jobs and places to live, how it would steal his baby girl right out of his arms, how it would take his smile, his laughter, his love for life and it would take and take and take until it took his life.

    Shawn fought a good fight but heroin took his life and forever changed the lives of his family and friends. If heroin or any other substance has you trapped and feeling like there is no way out - you are not alone. There is help for you. Your story doesn’t have to end the way that Shawn’s did. Ask for help.

    A Memorial Service will be held on Monday, October 10, 2016 at 6 pm at Cornerstone Community Church, 26 Bombardier Road in Milton, VT.
