Aidan Carter, the son of Joe and Rosey Carter Cope, of Gloucester County, died at Riverside Regional Medical Center on May 2, 2022, as the result of an auto accident. He was only 22 years old. Aidan was a 2018 Gloucester High School graduate and an employee of C.A. Barrs Contractor. Family and friends have said he was the light everywhere he went with his smile and contagious laugh. Aidan loved his family and friends more than anything. He was a big shy guy, but once he got comfortable, he was wide open. He loved all sports, but the New York Yankees were his jam. He was always listening to loud music and making up silly dances. He enjoyed going to the beach and out on the boat, but not necessarily getting in the water unless it was a pool. Don’t mess with his shoes and hats. He was always watching Barstool Sports and documentaries. He loved moving dirt in his air-conditioned machine. Aidan loved life! He will be missed by all who knew him. Even though we lost our big sweet boy, he went on to help others by being an organ donor. Great-grandfather, Calvin Rhea, and great-grandmother, Genelle Carter, preceded Aidan in death. Survivors in addition to his parents are siblings, Quwas Carter and Mariner Cope; maternal grandparents, Al and Denise Carter; maternal great-grandmother, Rachel Rhea; paternal grandmother, Arlene Cope; uncles, Zac Carter and Eric and Monique (aunt) Cope; special cousins, Brodie and Brooklyn, and a huge extended family that adores him. A gathering of family and friends was held Tuesday, May 10, 2022, from 5-6 p.m. at the Abingdon Ruritan Club, 8784 Guinea Road, Hayes, Va. 23072. A special Memories Tribute will begin at 6 p.m.
