Brandon “Bub” Kiley Carter went to be with his Lord and Savior on March 13, 2023 at the age of 49 following a courageous battle against multiple conditions. He was a member of Indiana Avenue Baptist Church. He volunteered as a big brother at the Children’s Home of Lubbock.
Bub was born to Mark and Debbie Carter on March 1st, 1974 in Lubbock Texas. He graduated from Plainview High School in 1992 where he was involved in basketball and baseball. He enrolled in Texas Tech University and graduated with a Bachelor of science degree in exercise sports science in 1998. He entered into a career in sales in which everyone who knew him knew he could sell ice to an eskimo!
Bub was an avid sports fan! His favorite teams included the Idalou Wildcats, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Duke Blue Devils, Texas Rangers, Boston Celtics, Green Bay Packers and numerous WWF and WWE wrestlers over the years and he thought of himself as the Fantasy Football guru.
Bub was a family man. He was great to his parents, grandparents, siblings, nieces and nephews. Some of his greatest times were at family gatherings where he had the chance to crack jokes and pester his nieces and nephews! Bub could be found at just about every Idalou Wildcat sporting event cheering on his family. He was their number 1 fan! He especially enjoyed his time with the newest addition to the family, HB Carter.
Bub was good natured, funny, the life of every party and he stood strong in the face of adversity. He will be greatly missed by his numerous friends and family. He is proceeded in death by his grandparents and his nephew Harrison Joshua Carter. He is survived by his parents Mark and Debbie Carter, best friend and brother Josh Carter and wife Abby, sister Taylor and husband Justin, his nephews Kaden and Kash Koontz, and nieces Khloe Koontz and HB Carter and his beloved puppy Mini.
