William was rescued in Lifeboat 4, and survived the sinking. The rest of his family also survived.
His favorite part of the ship was probably one of the decks because all of the classes could be on it, not just the First Class passengers. His least favorite part of the ship was the Grand Staircase, because people are always on it like they own it because they were in First Class.
William Thornton Carter II died on January 28th, 1985, at the age of eighty-four. He was the last Titanic survivor to die before the wreck was discovered on September 1st, 1985.
