On Saturday, January 16, 2021, Reginald “Rabbit” Carter, Loving brother, beloved uncle, cousin and friend, passed away at 7:46 am at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.

Reginald was born on June 17, 1964 in Norfolk, VA to WIlliam and Odell Carter. He attended Norfolk Public Schools and subsequently completed his primary education, by obtaining his General Education Diploma through Job Corps. Rabbit was predeceased by both parents and siblings; Trent Carter (Brother), Jerry Carter (Brother) and Vanessa “Boojie” Carter (Sister). He leaves behind seven sisters and three brothers, Bonnie A. Carter, Terry Craft, Sharon Carter, Sheila Carter-Brooks (Richard), Channing Carter, Charlene Carter-Weeks, Barbara White, Champ Carter, William Lee Carter Jr, and Raven Stancil. Moreover, Reginald left behind a host of nephews and nieces, including: Joseph Yancey, Fabian T. Carter, Travis Carter, Jerry D. Cabarrus, Danielle Carter, Dwight A. Carter, Ricardo L. Cabarrus, Laquita L Carter, Teranesha N. Craft, Daquan Carter, Najee Carter, and Corey D. Carter. His death also precedes an extensive host of great-nephews, great-nieces and cousins by the dozens.

“Rabbit” was best known to family and friends as an avid bike rider, loyal family member and comedian, who have missed his calling, If it wasn’t for his sense of humor, unapologetic “roasts” and comedic relief, I’m not sure where our lives will be today. He will forever be loved and missed by all and may his soul rest in peace.

    Uncle Rabbit,

    You will be missed.

    Thank you for being an important part of my life story. You were like the sunshine on a rainy day because I could always count of you to make me smile.

    Your sense of humor and dependability was golden and very appreciated.

    I love you oh so much.

    May you rest in peace.

    Uncle Rabbit,

    You’ve always allowed me to be who I wanted to be and encouraged me to be great. I remember you always telling my brother Ricky and I that you are our dad. You showed us every chance that you had, that we was not the “forgotten sons.” I grieve your passing without judgement or limits. I love you and miss you forever. You will never be forgotten and may you live long forever. Rest in Peace Uncle Rabbit. We love you deeply!!!

    Love ,Nephew Jerry C.
