Arlington Dems Mourn the Loss of Kent Carter

The Democratic Black Caucus of Arlington mourns the tragic and sudden loss of Kent Carter, who passed away Sunday, October 2, 2022, while vacationing abroad.

Kent was a father, veteran, accomplished real estate broker, and an activist and community leader well known for his dedication to and uplifting of the Arlington community. As First Vice President of the Arlington Branch of the NAACP, Kent embodied the spirit of service and worked tirelessly to advance the political, social, and economic welfare for people of color and all those impacted by injustice. He was a mentor and friend to many members of the Black Caucus. We will remember the countless hours Kent spent encouraging fellowship and investing in his community.

His civic engagement and commitment to service was unparalleled and will never be forgotten. The Arlington community has truly lost one of our brightest stars. A loss that is unfathomable and echoes not only throughout Arlington but throughout the entire Commonwealth of Virginia and beyond.

Our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies go out to his family and all those who had the honor and privilege of calling him friend. May God grant us all strength during this incredibly difficult time.
