Caroll was Honorably Discharged from the Army November 30, 1956.

Caroll liked people of all kind. Conversation came easy wherever he was, whether employment, his church, serving as a Stephen Minister, or his time as a care giver to many family members throughout his life.

As a father, he never missed his daughter’s recitals, basket ball games, cheer, school events, birthdays, College Dad’s Day, and many late night calls from college.

A private burial is scheduled at Oklahoma City Resurrection Memorial Cemetery. A Memorial celebration of his life is scheduled at Church of the Servant, 14343 N. MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 2pm.

The family would like to thank Dr. Jon Axton and Nurse Mary Jo of Oklahoma City for their care and support during his battle with cancer and Tulsa Arbors Assisted Living for their care as well. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Grace Hospice Foundation.

  1. Learned of my long time friend Caroll’s graduation last evening 7/8/2014. My thoughts and prayers go out to you Gina and Vicki. I have often thought of Caroll as a brother, friend, fellow worker throughout the 40 years I was privileged to have known him.

    Some of my fondest memories include the Mr. Wizard game we played on countless unsuspecting folks we met. The Monday evenings while at Northwestern Mutual when making telephone calls for the week (interrupted by the occasional hiding under the desk scaring the wits out of each other) were certainly forever etched in my memory. When two grown men could have fun and laugh together doing that, truly that is a treasure reserved for friends.

    I look forward to the day when St. Peter opens Heavens gates for me and as I round the corner only to see Caroll jumping out from behind a well manicured bush scaring me again.

    Until then, I will live with the pleasant memories of discussing the politics of this world with him and it not affecting our relationship. Caroll was a very unique person.
