Dr. Carter LeMaster Nicely Tucson, AZ, Dr. Carter LeMaster Nicely, died October 20, 2006, after an eight week battle with cancer. Born September 4, 1947 in Winchester, VA he grew up in Germany and various cities throughout the United States following World War II as a part of a military family. Graduating from Ohio Wesleyan University in 1970, he moved to Annapolis, MD assuming the role of an educator and mentor lifting the aspirations for students and colleagues alike during his 33 years of service. During his tenure as an educator, he completed work leading to his Masters and Doctorate in education from George Washington University, Washington, D.C. He retired in 2003 to travel and experience life and became passionate about his boxer dogs beginning the process of showing and breeding Champions. It fit well into his plans, as a boxer club became instant family in any city visited. His journey seemed to settle when he arrived in Tucson where he found peace and tranquility. He resumed teaching at nearby Pima Community College in Tucson, with a local boxer club providing roots and the Reveille Tucson Gay Men's Chorus rekindling a passion. Surviving are his brother, Christopher Lane Nicely, Chris' wife Shanda F. Nicely and nephews, Clinton Robert Nicely, Cody Franck Nicely and Christopher Carson Nicely of Knoxville, TN, and friend, Alan Kelly Tucson, AZ with many other wonderful friends throughout the country.
