Celebrating the life of Howard C. "Kip" Carter
Thank you for signing Howard C. "Kip" Carter's Guestbook
I cannot begin to say enough about Kip. I began my work at USC with Kip while I was a student. He saw potential in me and moved me up through the ranks. He later hired me as Production Manager setting me on a career path I truly enjoyed. His bright smile and constant enthusiasm opened many doors for our department's growth. We wired Williams Brice Stadium for television in 1971 setting in place the elaborate video system we all now enjoy. We installed television studios in the BA school, the College of Education and Engineering School. Under Kip's oversight, the University of South Carolina had one of the premier distance education programs in the country; it was sad to see poor leadership higher up waste away that vision. We were so highly regarded at that time that Stanford University called us in as consultants when they were setting up their own distance ed. Kip was a visionary and very intelligent man; he taught me professionalism that became my own standard. I miss you, old friend.

Words can not due justice to the kindness Kip showed to others on a daily basis. He was always quick to help others and was a treasure trove of anecdotes on the history of the Bahá’í Faith in SC. You lived your "dash" well!

God cares for those who are brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them. Psalm 147:3 says: "He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

We were saddened to hear about the passing of dear Kip. He was a true gentleman with a pure, kindly and radiant heart and the embodiment of Southern kindness and love for mankind. He would always go out of his way to show care, friendship and offer help to anyone in the community regardless or gender, race or socioeconomical background. We will never forget how when we first arrived to Columbia, SC in the late 80’s and we contacted him. He and Cindy showed up at our doorstep within the hour and helped us settle and meet other friends in the community. We shared with him and his family innumerable memorable moments of laughter and fellowship. We were blessed by having had Kip and his family touched our lives for so many years.
Be assured of our heartfelt prayers for the progress of his soul and comfort for his family. With deepest love and sympathy, Marta, Chaden, Alma and Maya Djalali
