Shaw Carter remembered: Gainesville, world 'has lost a bright light
Loved ones celebrate humor, courage of heart recipient, cancer survivor
Shaw Carter, shown in 2015 after returning to Young Harris College following his bout with lymphoma, died Wednesday. He was 24.
Family and friends remembered Shaw Carter for his humor and ability to “take everything in stride” while battling a heart condition that led to a transplant, and later contracting lymphoma in his young life. Carter, 24, died Wednesday, according to Little and Davenport Funeral Home in Gainesville. After his son was born with a heart defect, Doug Carter asked the cardiologist if Shaw would live to graduate from high school and college.
