Tripp was born on May 29, 1975 in Orangeburg, SC to the late Lynn Wells Carter, Jr and the late Myrna Croft Carter. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased in death by a brother in law Douglas Townsend of Aiken, SC.
He was a 1993 graduate of Andrew Jackson Academy and a 1995 graduate of Orangeburg Calhoun Technical College. He was employed by Dominion Energy as a Line Leader.
Tripp loved his family, his friends and life in general. He had a big personality and an even bigger smile. He was never without a story to tell. Most weekends he could be found surrounded by friends at his second home on the water in Land's End.
He is survived by his loving wife Jami Filyaw Carter and his fur baby Hampton Carter of the home; Mother and Father In Love Carlisle and Susan Filyaw of Barnwell; sister Cindy Bone and brother in love Mike Bone of Cope, SC; sister Ginger Townsend of Aiken, SC and proud uncle to his nephew Specialist Carter L. Townsend of Aiken, SC.
To say our world will be a little less bright without him is an understatement.
