He was married to his late wife of fifty two years, Elsie Marie Gardin Carter. For three years, Micah served his country proudly in the United States Navy aboard the USS Kankakee. He also served in the United States Air Force, with whom he retired after twenty one years of dedicated service. Micah was an avid bowler and regularly participated in the Senior Bowling Games. He was a loving father and grandfather who will be greatly missed.

I will miss you dad, if it weren't for you I don't think I would have made it through basic training. I love you.
