Maurice was a graduate of Brainerd High School with the Class of 1950. Upon graduation, he enlisted and served in the United States Navy from 1950-1953. Upon his honorable discharge he returned to Brainerd where he became involved in local Veteran’s Service Organizations.

On behalf of the family of Alfred Carter, we are very sorry to hear about the loss of Maury. My dad (Al Carter) and Maury struck up a friendship after the Korean War. They developed a friendship when the Last Man Supper was created for a limited amount of soldiers home from war. Throughout the years our family got to know Maury and enjoyed his visits with my parents. His sister Lucille and my mom (Lorraine Young-Carter) were classmates. A year ago Christmas we lost our dad (Al Carter) at that time, Maury and my dad were the two last survivors of the Last Man Club and Maury was just starting his treatments and was very sad he could not attend my dads funeral. My last conversation with him, he commented he was the last man standing of the Last Man Club. May God Bless You Maury and may you rest in peace. It's saddens me to know the end of an era is complete. I can only imagine, there is a a Last Man gathering happening in heaven.
Wendy Shamp and Sandy Heino
