ELWOOD – Cory Joe Carter, age 22, of Elwood, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2022.
He was born on April 19, 1999, to his parents, Thomas Carter and Lucina (Owens) Carter.
Cory grew up in the Elwood/Tipton area, as well as Noblesville, and graduated in the Class of 2018 from Tri-Central High School. Cory was employed at Dan Young Automotive in Tipton as a service technician.
Cory was his parent’s fourth child and was responsible for adding a lot of laughter, fun and joy to the lives of his parents, as well as his four siblings. Cory had a personality that people were simply drawn to. He was happy, outgoing and believed in leaving people better than how he found them.
In Cory’s spare time, you may have found him fishing or admiring one of his antique tractors.
Cory was a bright young man, with a strong work ethic, as well as an unwavering dedication to his family. Recently, Cory became a father and was able to experience the love and adoration of being a parent. Even though he only shared six weeks with his beautiful little girl, his love will follow her throughout her life!
Cory will be so greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him!

Cory was welcomed into Heaven by his brother, Kevin Carter; grandma, Shirley Owens; Nana and Gramps, Russell and Mary Eppelheimer; and Mamaw and Papaw, Eathel and Francis Carter.
