Carl Salter

DOUDS — Carl William Salter, 93, of Port Charlotte, Fla., formerly of Douds, passed away May 7, 2013 at his home.

Carl was born Oct. 3, 1919, in Douds and moved to Port Charlotte 41 years ago from Norwood, Mass. Carl was a World War II veteran who served proudly in the U.S. Navy. He was one of the few who had survived the sinking of his ship, the USS Buck DD 420, in 1943 during the invasion of Salerno, Italy. After recovering from his injuries, Carl taught gunnery at Annapolis until the end of the war. Carl was an avid fisherman, hunter, voracious reader and a hobbyist in radio and television electronics. He mainly enjoyed gardening, in particular the tomato. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend and will always be remembered by those who loved and knew him.

He is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Olympia; two daughters, Carole Hodges of Port Charlotte, Fla., and Deborah Chandler of El Sobrante, Calif.; two sons, Carl Salter Jr. of Long Valley, N.J., and Joseph Salter of Port Charlotte, Fla.; nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his son, John C. Salter, who passed away in 2002.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Roberson Funeral Home Port Charlotte Chapel with military honors by a U.S. Navy Honor Guard.

Arrangements are by Roberson Funeral Home & Crematory Port Charlotte Chapel.
