BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – 53-year-old EBRSO Lieutenant Terryl Carter, Sr. died on Tuesday night.

EBRSO says the death of the 27-year veteran was ‘unexpected’ and he leaves behind a wife, daughter and long list of accomplishments in public service.

One of the many roles that EBRSO Carter held was “as Lieutenant over the School Resources Officers assigned to the Central School District,” according to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office.

To say that his loss is felt by the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office family is an understatement.

Carter’s wife, son and nephew all serve with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Sid Gautreaux had this to say about EBRSO Lieutenant Terryl Carter, Sr.:

I am forever grateful to Terryl for his service; and I am blessed to call his family, my family. Please join me in praying for all that loved him during this most difficult time. I have no doubt that Terryl has impacted the hearts of many. He will be forever missed.
