After a year-long battle with cancer, Carroll passed away at home surrounded by family. He will be remembered by his huge smile and great sense of humor. You never knew what he had up his sleeve. 

He loved his family so much. He leaves behind his loving wife, Birdie, of 59 years; three children — Caroline, Craig, Crystal — and son-in-law Clyde Dalton. He also had 10 grand children and 13 great-grandkids and many good friends.

Carroll had a great love for hunting, fishing and archery. He loved doing these things with his kids and grandkids. He also loved spending time on his houseboat. You could always count on him to know how to fix anything. He loved and cherished the old cars that he restored. He loved old Corvettes, and had restored many, but his real love was a 1934 Ford pickup .

The family would like to thank everyone for all the cards and phone calls. It is a real blessing to all of us to know he was loved by so many.
