Dr. Carpenter resides in Eagan with his wife Colleen and dog Rambo. His grown son Ryan is engaged in the business world and his daughter Meagan attends the University of Minnesota. Skiing and jogging have been activities Dr. Carpenter has enjoyed, and he maintains a salt water aquarium as a hobby. At one time he had as many as eight sea horses to watch over.
