Master Chief Roy B. Carthen

1922-2017



It is with heavy heart that I announce the passing of a great man, my Dad, Roy Burton Carthen.
A truly great man who had his priorities in life correct.

First and foremost his relationship with Jesus Christ his Lord. From a young age
after giving his heart to Christ he served him with pleasure where ever and
in whatever capacity he was call to serve.

Second was his family, to his first wife Angie, my Mom for 62 ½ years.
To his second wife Bertie the best second Mom I could have for 12 years.
And to me and my sister Angelia for all of our lives.

Thirdly he served his Country for 23 ½ years in the U. S. Navy
He was the second man ever to receive the rank of E9 Master Chief.
Earning numerous awards and citations during World War II and Korea.

He continued his career at Cape Canaveral writing technical manuals
for the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo Space Missions.

He obtained his Florida real estate license and developed and
sold mobile home parks throughout Central Florida.

He will be greatly missed.

In lieu of flowers, the family graciously requests contributions be made in memory of Roy
to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Samaritan’s Purse.
