VANCE CARLYLE CARTER
Vance Carlyle Carter, 59, Knoxville, died peacefully Jan. 10, 2019.
Vance, son of Bertha Elizabeth and William Lloyd Carter of Clinton, was born in Knoxville. Vance graduated high school from Culver Military Academy in Culver, Ind. Vance attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville where he received a degree in electrical engineering and a bachelor’s degree in architecture in 1988.
Vance was the sole proprietor of Big S Farms Hot Sauce and Salsa Company, which was started in 1999. He crafted unique recipes for his products utilizing habanero peppers grown in Cocke County. Three flavors of sauce were produced, including Tennessee Mountain Green, Tennessee Lightning, and Tennessee Thunder, along with three levels of salsa from medium to extra hot. Mild was not an option. Vance's renowned products have been distributed throughout the East Tennessee region for many years. Vance joined Ken Bronson Construction Co. Inc. as Designer, Senior Project Manager and Estimator in 2000. His devotion to this company was unprecedented. Vance's love of architectural design often found him diligently working through the night on projects that required his level of focus. He had the unique ability to visualize projects in three dimensions, which allowed him to create details that far surpassed two dimensional drawings. One of his favorite projects was The Children's Defense Fund Chapel, designed by Maya Lin, and constructed on Alex Haley's Farm in Norris. Here Vance designed templates to create canted siding to be applied to skewed arched exterior walls, thus allowing a truly horizontal appearance.
Vance was a brilliant man, and will be greatly missed.
Vance was preceded in death by: Parents, William Lloyd and Elizabeth Plummer Carter; brother, Kent Carter.
He is survived by: Nephew, Aden Carter; niece, Sarah Elizabeth Carter; and great-niece, Aaralyn Carter.
A very special thanks to good friends Sandy Foster, Ellen Robinette and Ken Bronson.
A private burial will be held at a later date.
