Don Carter


American bowling champion, considered America's first top bowler. He was the employee of a large sporting organization where he worked as an instructor, advisor and general assistant. Relaxed and poised, he seldom lost or got flustered. In 1964 he signed a million dollar endorsement contract, the largest contract signed until then.

He married LaVerne Thompson in 1953. After ten years of marriage and one child, the couple divorced. He was happily married to his second wife Paula Sperber, another topflight bowler, until his death. They had one child together. He died of pneumonia at his Miami, Florida home on 5 January 2012 at age 85.
