More Praise For the Late Don Carter

"He was also one of the most generous people; he and his wife Paula helped many children of drug addicts by loaning them housing, helping them with their expenses and their education. They did this without any fanfare. Anything worthwhile, Don was there." ~ Chuck Pezzano, USBC and PBA Hall of Fame writer

"In my opinion, Earl Anthony, Dick Weber and Don Carter are the three iconic people in the history of our game, and you can flip that order any way you want it. Don was that good. Back when he was in his prime, he was the rock star of bowling. He was hanging out with the Mickey Mantles and stars of that caliber. He was a larger than life figure." ~ Marshall Holman, USBC and PBA Hall of Famer

"I have often said that what made me become a pro bowler was when I was 13 years old and I went to Madison Square Garden to watch Dick Weber and Don Carter do an exhibition. From that day on, I wanted to be like them, I wanted to be a pro bowler. And through the years Carter has always been such high class. He was really a great guy who never lost his temper or treated you any differently than anybody else. Just 100% class." ~ Johnny Petraglia, USBC and PBA Hall of Famer

"There has only been one rock star in bowling, and that was Don Carter." ~ Barry Asher, USBC and PBA Hall of Famer

"This was the most influential man in the history of our sport. Back in the 1950's, the combination of the advent of the pinsetter, television, and Don Carter brought the sport of bowling into the modern era." ~ Larry Lichstein, PBA Hall of Famer
