Phillip Clark Canter, 58, of Sebring passed away Monday, Sept. 16, 2013, at Highlands Regional Medical Center in Sebring.

Born Nov. 29, 1954, in Brownsville, Texas, to Loretta and Clifton Howard Canter Sr., he moved to Lake Placid as a child and graduated in 1973 from Lake Placid High School. He was a rancher, an avid motorcycle rider and enjoyed flying radio-controlled airplanes at the Placid Lakes flying field. Mr. Canter enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He was a member of Broken Glass in Sebring, an outreach of Dunklin Memorial Camp in Okeechobee and the Cross Roads Church in Sebring.

Mr. Canter is survived by his wife, Cynthia; daughters Carmen Newbould (Jamie), Katrina Ficco and Stormi Canter; four grandsons and one granddaughter; a brother, Chris Canter Sr.; and his loyal dog Pig.

A service to celebrate Mr. Canter’s life was Friday at the Cross Roads Church, 605 State Route 66, Sebring, with Pastors Kenny LaGrow and Floyd Holland celebrating. The family suggests donations in Phillip’s memory to the Cross Roads Church.

Cremation arrangements were entrusted to Scott Funeral Home, Lake Placid.
