    I grew up living with Carroll and his family as my neighbors for almost 60 years. They are more than neighbors, I consider them family. Carroll was always a hard worker and willing to help. I have many memories within those 60 years. I will miss seeing that skinny man and his Big Red. Fly High Carroll. Love always, until we met again. Thoughts and Prayers for the family. Teresa and Dennis
