Carter Underwood Obituary

Carter Joseph Underwood was born on January 27, 1995 in Miami, Florida.  He passed away on January 16, 2024 at Vanderbilt Medical Center from Necrotizing Pancreatitis. 

He is survived by his parents, Jeff and Jana Canington Underwood; his brother and best friend, Clayton (Callie) Underwood; his loving nephews, Jaxson and Wyatt Underwood; grandparents, Dolores Underwood and Paul Bismarck; aunts and uncles; Rick and Donna Underwood, Vickie Stone (Dean Iacono) and Jeni  and Steve Hahn; cousins, Jason (Stephanie) Underwood, Justin (Rebekah) Underwood, Nicole (Chris) Schroeder, Shannon (Matt) Carnes, Scott (Nicole) Stone, Dylan (Jasmine) Hahn and Dannyelle Hahn.  Also surviving are numerous great aunts and uncles, extended family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Thomas Underwood and Lamar Canington, his nana, Kay Bismarck and grandmother, JoAnn Underwood.

Since Carter was born, he has always been laid back.  He has been a kind and loving son.  A natural at everything including wakeboarding, skating and diving.  All sports came easy for Carter.  He was so intelligent, talented and he was a great carpenter.  He always had a smile on his face, laid back and easy going.  Carter was very quiet like his great grandfather, he would just sit back and observe.  He didn’t like to make small talk but if he had something to say it was important. 

He had many fun adventures.  He loved to Kayak and go diving when he lived in Florida and he always enjoyed riding his four wheeler.  He was a loving son, brother and uncle to Jaxson and Wyatt.  We are thankful that he kept Jesus in his heart.  

After graduating from Cannon County High School, Carter began working at Johnson Controls (Adient) where he became a team lead.  An opportunity for him to join General Mills (Pillsbury) came in September 2021 and he accepted.  He enjoyed working and he made many friends at both places of employment.  When you eat those wonderful cinnamon rolls from Pillsbury, please think of Carter.

We, as his family, are thankful for the lives he touched by just being Carter.
