CARPENTER, JOHN GEORGE, 91, of Morristown, died Monday, May 22, 2006, at his home. Born Sept. 19, 1914, in Morgan County, he spent most of his life in Harriman. A quiet, soft-spoken, self-educated man of many talents, he moved in with his older sister and brother-in-law, Dorothy Carpenter and Joe Murphy, at the age of 15 after his parents died.

He joined the Navy Construction Battalion, otherwise known as the Seabees, during World War II and was a proud member of the 24th Navy Construction Battalion who attended reunions year after year. He was a retired TVA steamfitter with many years of service; however, his passion was his artwork. For many years in the evenings and on the weekends, he could be found on his back porch, paints in hand. His artwork brought him a fair amount of local notoriety. In addition to drawing satirical cartoons for Paul Page, former publisher of the Roane County News, he was commissioned by many people in the community to paint portraits and scenes. His pictures hung in area restaurants, attracting the attention of many tourists, and several of his paintings won awards in local and regional juried showings. He donated one of his paintings, The Good Samaritan, to his Sunday school class at Trenton Street Baptist Church, Harriman, where he was a longtime member. For several years he taught an art class for Harriman City Schools’ Community Education program. He was involved in woodworking, building several grandfather and mantle clocks as well as the cradles for his grandchildren. Another of his interests was the ham radio. After learning Morse code and passing the licensing test, he spent many hours talking to people around the world and collected several hundred cards from those with whom he shared a long-distance friendship.
He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 61 years, Ida Belle Carpenter, in 2003.
