PHOENIX — Funeral services have been set for a Phoenix firefighter and former professional football player who died in a vehicle crash in September.

Chris Carter, 35, died Sept. 23 in a crash on Highway 93 north of Kingman, according to the Phoenix Fire Department.

Funeral services for Carter will be held Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. at Christ’s Church of the Valley Peoria, located at 7007 W. Happy Valley Road.

“Chris will always be remembered for his humble and hardworking attitude,” the department said in a press release.

Carter had been with the department since February 2019.

Prior to his time with Phoenix Fire, Carter was a member of the 2012 Arizona Rattlers team that won the Arena Football League championship.

Carter also had a short stint with the Seattle Seahawks, although he never played in a game for the NFL team.

Carter is survived by his parents, sister, and four nieces and nephews.
