We mourn the passing of Eugene Colter, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. Born on September 7, 1943 in South Carolina, He is the son of the late William and Sadie Withers-Glover. He attended the public schools of Orangeburg County, and graduated from George Washington Carver High School. Eugene was a proud Air Force Veteran of twenty years. He entered the military in 1965 and retired in Charleston, South Carolina in 1985 as a Staff Sergeant. Eugene traveled extensively during his time in the service. After retiring from the military he spent several years at Behr Corporation as a machinist.
He was preceded in death by his parents and six siblings, Willie, George, Earl, Betty, Clemons and Della.
Eugene was a man who loved deeply and was deeply loved in return. He was a devoted husband to Irene Colter, his wife of 47 years, and a loving father to Genene and Charles. His grandchildren, Erome, Kiana, Gabrielle, and his niece Rachel were the apple of his eye, and he cherished the time he spent with them.
He also leaves to cherish fond memories, two brothers; Frank Colter and Henry Colter, and one sister Sarah Gorey. Two brother-in-laws: Eddie Lee (Veronica) Glover, Jr. and Clary Edward (Curlener) Glover Sr., and a sister-in-law, Annie Ruth Jennings. He also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, and two special friends: Samuel Grey Mack and JoAnne Mack of Payallup, Washington. Eugene was an avid fisherman and loved nothing more than spending a day on the lake, fishing and telling stories with his family and friends. He was a generous man, always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. He was a kind and gentle soul who will be deeply missed. He will be remembered for his kind heart and generous spirit.
