January 23, 1965 – April 29, 2023
Mark Anthony Carter, age 58, passed away Saturday, April 29, 2023, surrounded by his family in his home in South Holland, Illinois. He was born on January 23, 1965, in Chicago, Illinois. He was preceded in death by his father Cliff Williams and his mother Mae Carter. Mark was a serial entrepreneur, wearing many hats over the course of his long career, first as a fundraiser, consultant, real estate investor, and much more. Mark was known not only for the incredible depth of knowledge he brought to any subject, any business, but also for the warmth of his personality, kindness, deep regard for others, and a radiant optimism. He embodied the very best characteristics one would want to have in a spouse, friend, and father.
Mark is survived by his wife of 29 years, Raneigh M. Carter. All four of his children Francis McCall, Stephanie McCall, Marcus Carter, and Anastasia Carter. His grandchildren Laila Robbins and Jada Lynn Hogans. His Uncle Jerry Bender, cousin Jerry Bender Jr., cousins Ron and Joyce Bender, Nicky, Ranita, their grandchildren Marcus, Mya, Aiden, and Mylan. His Father-in-Law Fred Wilson, Sister-in-law Miki Wilson, and nephew Roderick Hatcher and a host of extended family members and friends.
